One of Ireland's biggest exports is music. To name a few, there's U2; Thin Lizzy; Westlife; Boyzone; The Pogues; The Corr's....

If you want to find out more about music from Ireland, and in particular the Dublin scene and influence, I'd recommend the Dublin Rock 'n' Roll Bus Tour

It lasts 75 minutes, and you are driven round Dublin in an American style tour bus, complete with leather seats and blacked out windows. The guys who do the tours really know their stuff as well.

If you'd rather walk and go to the pub all at the same time, there's also a Rock 'n' Roll Musical Pub Crawl which takes 2 and a half hours

Omg, who would want to drive around in a blacked out window bus? You can't see the city around you! Or is it just blacked out from the outside?
