A Pokémon GO pub crawl is coming to Dublin

Two of the country's biggest obsessions - the craic and Pokémon GO - come together.

The event has been organised by Marcel Whelan of Click to Causes, a digital agency for non-profits.

He told Lovin Dublin: "We're in talks with different bars around Dublin to lock down the crawl route for Ireland’s first Pokémon Go Pub Crawl.

"We've had a great response so far. It’s awesome to see Irish SMBs eager to get involved, jumping on board and adapting a new technology to drum up some business for themselves."

An event page has been set up on Facebook here, with 1.1k people already signed up, and proceeds will go to charity.

It reads: 

Come and join us for Ireland's first ever Pokémon Go Pub crawl and largest ever Irish Gathering.

We will be crawling Poképubs in Dublin's City Centre.

The Poképubs are currently mystery locations.... We will announce them prior to the event.

What we can tell you is that we will be dropping lures at each Poképub. So there will be a lot of Pokémon up for grabs.

We will also be awarding Pokécoins for the best Pokésnap caption from the night. Post them to our Facebook page with #COYPG (Come On You Pokemon Go!) to enter.

Don't forget to wear your team colours with pride!

Get ready for serious craic while we catch em all!
