Sure it wouldn’t be Ireland without a pint of Guinness!
This year is the centenary celebration of the 1916 Rising in Ireland. Take the tour of the largest un-operational gaol in Ireland, where the leaders of the rising were executed causing the Irish Civil War that lead to our independence. Kilmainham Gaol is an unmissable piece of Irish history, and we at Jacobs Inn will be happy to tell you about all of the buses and trams that can take you there from right outside the hostel but we’ll try not to get too choked up with national pride.
It’s no secret that Irish are fond of an old drink. And it’s no secret that the Backpackers Pub Crawl is one of the best in the world.

With four top Dublin pubs, free shots, live music, drinking games and free club entry what more could you want? Ask downstairs at reception for tickets and party with the Irish!
