The tour audio was quite funny and informative. The bus gave us a pretty good understanding of the layout of Dublin and the stops were all great. I recommend this ride.

Excellent service. I recommend if you, like my family didn't have lots of days to explore the city. Individual ear-plugs and local history.

Gerad (Ger) was our driver and provided amusing anecdotal Dublin history infused with his charming humor at every turn. Never a dull moment. This is a great way to get the lay of the land if it's your first time here and will help you to plan a more efficient route if you're going at it on your own.

Use as a taxi but lousy for learning about the city
Poor commentary. Didn’t mention most of the sights that we passed. Only an option instead of a taxi. No Collins Baracks or many others

Choose any other tour company
Mar 2020 • Family
Choose any other bus company in Dublin! I believe there is big red bus and hop on and hop off (green bus)! While waiting, for this bus 2-3 busses from the other companies (5-6 busses total) game because one came from this company. Maps they give you are not really all that helpful. They list the stops and that’s about it. No information on what time tours start and end. Or how often the busses are supposed to come. When on the bus (once it finally comes) busses don’t even stop at every stop unless you go down and ask the driver. Overall pretty disappointing.

Hi macyvosbeek, Thank you for your message. I'm sorry to see you didn't enjoy your experience. There are information leaflets at our tourist offices, and there are members of staff in theses locations. Street promoters outside would also inform you of times. If buses are not stopping, i'm very sorry to this. All drivers know that they have to stop at each location. I will send your feedback to our Transport Manager. Thank you,

Terrible!
Terrible experience. There is no time table and the busses are very rare. When they actually do come you practically have to jump in front of them to get them to stop. There is no timetable so you never know when they are coming. Use any other hop on service.
