Dedicated local tour guide with local knowledge/ history and Beer Expert

  •   Not only is he nice to look at, he also knows his beer! This was the perfect activity to get us out of the rain spending an afternoon learning about, and tasting, the different beers that Dermot selected for us this day. He gave a good explanation for what gave each beer its unique taste and also helped us understand some of the politics behind Irish beer. I would gladly do this again on my next visit to Dublin and very strongly recommend you do as well. My nephew and I both left a bit sauced, but well educated on Irish craft beer, cheers.....

  •   This was one of the best experiences we’ve had in Dublin by far! Dermot was awesome and provided a great, diverse arrangement of Irish beers that we wouldn’t have found otherwise. He was very passionate and engaging, and also super fun to chat with. It felt very thought out and unique, definitely book this experience when in Dublin!

      Excellent way to experience local craft beers that can’t be found at all the bars. Really knowledgeable about the upbringing of the beer and areas to find it if it’s uncommon.
