From its Parliament to churches, Trinity College to Temple Bar, you will see it all. The evening features a private tour of the Guinness Storehouse and dinner in one of Dublin’s exclusive venues with some of the coolest entrepreneurs in Dubline. After hours in the many local pubs.

The night would not be complete without an after hours pub crawl in Temple Bar.
