Dublin is stocked with sights. If you don't know your way around, this bus tour is the way to go. We took it and had a great time hopping off at places like the Dublin Cathedral, the Guinness Storehouse, the Jail and it was more than worth the price.

Eamon, our driver for both the Original and Docklands Tour, was polite, funny and extremely informative. The tours are a great way to get round the city and the ticket also gets you a day free as well as money off at the Guinness storehouse! The tours tend to be much of a muchness in Dublin, but this one is... More

We did both the city tour and the docklands tour. Our docklands tour had a live commentary and was great, Joe, our driver was very knowledgeable, funny and we even got a song! The city tour, was good and you see everything you would want to see but it wasn't live commentary, it was a recording, which wasn't quite as... More

I've been on bus tours in many cities and I think they're a great way to get a flavour of a place. For the original tour it's worth waiting another 10 mins for a live tour rather than recorded bus. You pick up some great tips e.g. It pointed out Ryan's steakhouse, right by our hotel but we didn't realise... More

Hi William, Thanks for posting your feedback on the freedom ticket. It is the best value ticket in Dublin as you can use the Airlink Airport Express, the Hop-on Hop-off tour as well as any local Dublin Bus commuter service for 72 consecutive hours. Looking forward to seeing you on board again in the future, Best Wishes More

We were slightly confused as to where to get the bus but have to say that absolutely everyone remotely connected with the Irish Tour Board were so helpful. Our first trip was... More
