We spent our first day in Dublin doing this and I really enjoyed the live commentary. You can hop on and hop off at every station you like, which is what we did. Busses run every 10 to 15 Minutes and except of once they weren't overcrowded either. Just the last bus we took to get back to the start... More

I had spent 3 days exploring Dublin intensively (by myself and with a group and a private guide) and was then joined by my husband. We decided to take the green bus tour together to help orient ourselves -- it added more to what I had learned already and was invaluable in helping us navigate the rest of our stay.... More

This bus tour of Dublin was great, it was a lovely sunny morning, luckily there was no rain! The live commentary from the Driver Bill was absolutely brilliant. He made it a rather enjoyable tour. Also the commentary was very clear on board, my friend who was with me, she has been on a number of bus tours around the... More

This was a great value bus tour. Make sure that you get the benefit of the send free day and the free walking tour. We only found out about this when we were to late to take advantage of it! . The drivers are really great with the patience of saints and a great sense of humour. Our multi-nationality tour... More

Myself and my partner did use the green bus for 2 days 17th - 18th October 2014. We did enjoy the live commentary from the docks bus driver on the 18th October. However, our experience was heavily tainted by waiting 40 minutes for a bus to pick us up outside Collins Barracks. I ran to make sure we managed to... More

If you are just staying overnight or for a couple of days this is the best and surest way to get a fantastic overview of the city. Couple that with good weather and a really funny driver/tour guide and you're onto a real winner!

We purchased a day ticket and you get the second day free and is worth every penny. We jumped on and off all day at various stops on route the bus is very regular and you never have to wait long for another to arrive. The drivers have a brilliant sense of humour and make it even more enjoyable with... More

Wish I hadn't spent the money on this tour. Everything is close enough together you can walk instead of sitting on the bus. Each stop took 10 minutes while people got off and got on. Felt like a waste of a day.

The green bus hop-on hop-off is the best but be sure you take the bus that has live comments. It's something different, new and the comments are awesome!
