Meet Your Local Experts

There's an Irish pub in every corner of the globe - we invite you to discover why.

We are Dave & Keith, best friends since 11 years old, and joint explorers of Irish pubs.

We’ve explored 500 of Dublin's 750 pubs, and we’ve seen it all - An Maith, an t-olc, & an gránna, in other words: the good, the bad and the ugly. But we want you to see the authentic gems our home has to offer, so we founded
The Perfect Pint Tour to share our discoveries and guide you to the best Irish pubs Dublin has to offer.

Meet Keith
With an unwavering passion for Guinness, we owe our business to Keith's persevering quest for a quality pint. Keith’s tenacity dragged Dave across the county in the pursuit of Guinness. Only then did he not realise that a few years on he would be hosting daily tours of Dublin's most authentic Irish pubs and sharing his perfect pint discoveries with Guinness enthusiasts and pub explorers from across the world. Trust us, Keith's expertise is unmatched and his tales are worth experiencing first-hand!

Meet Dave
During our county tour of city pubs and off-the-beaten-track locals, Dave realised our mission could enlighten others. Growing up in the heart of pub culture with his father as a publican, Dave was already well-versed in the world of Irish pubs. After a fair few pints of Guinness, he suggested we start a pub tour business, and fast forward to today, Dave's managing the operations of our very own company - The Perfect Pint Tour. We've since grown the business to host a variety of public and private tours with culinary options too!
