We rarely use the bus tours, preferring to see the city by foot, but Dublin offered a deal and one stop was Guinness, so we took the bus. It was a good decision. We sat in the open top level and got a great view of the city. The flowers, the old buildings, it was very pretty, even with a... More

It was recommended to us by the doorman at the Shelbourne Hotel that we take the full ride on the Hop on Hop off bus and decide where we wanted to go back to visit. Our first driver of the day was a little quiet but the second time we got on, the driver was very lively and funny! This... More

If you do nothing else in Dublin take the green bus tour, you will not only be informed on the history of Dublin but be throughly entertained by the commentary of the bus drivers, who all seem to be comedians / and or singers. You get 2 days for the price of 1 and visit all the key places in... More

There are plenty of stops throughout the city. They run an “original line” and a “dockside” tour. They have a live tour guide on some buses and a “multilingual” recorded guide on others. We easily got our money’s worth out of it and used it as our primary means of transportation around the city.

We bought tickets, which were good for 2 days, and used the bus to hear a lot of history about Dublin, as well as to get from site to site. We experienced several drivers, all of whom were knowledgeable, but Ciaran was a standout. He was our last driver before we left Dublin, and we took him from Guinness Storehouse... More

Had a fab time and the driver was a real giggle - off course as in Ireland it rained and we were on the top deck but my, even that was fun! Good informative way to see around town before deciding what to do.
