On June 17 we embarked on a ‘mystery tour’ of Dublin with the 12-strong cast of Once. We were joined by a fantastic group of competition winners who shared the day with us.

With their instruments in tow, this talented bunch showed our guests Dublin city like they’d never seen it before. On an open-top bus, and also on foot, we enjoyed plenty of tunes and a lot of fun! And all this against the backdrop of beautiful Dublin on a gloriously sunny day.

Huge thanks to City Sightseeing Dublin​ for our brilliant open-top bus; O’Donoghue’s pub​ on Merrion Row; The Little Museum of Dublin​ on St. Stephen’s Green; Walton’s Music store on South Great George’s Street and Christ Church Cathedral Dublin​ for welcoming us with open arms!
