a thing! We explain it to you by quoting entertaining pieces
from the works of Dublin's scribes. They do the talking on this
tour. We also give you some background to the writers we feature
- so no jumping in at the deep end. We tell you about the great
pubs in the city, how the pub culture got started and how important
it was for the trade of writing.

Food is available at the Duke
pub before we start and at the second pub - but you
wont have time to eat a full meal during the tour. We only
