The bus drivers make this entertaining. How they navigate the streets and are able to maintain a narration at the same time is hard to believe. The only reason I gave the tour 4 stars is that the city is so torn up with construction that the busses never get to the stops on time. As it was our main... More

The tour lasted 5 hours that included a stop and tour at Malahide Castle (with tour) which was very interesting. Next stop was a brief ten minute stop at a beach. For lunch we stopped at the Howth port. Had some delicious fish and chips! Joe was very informative and even sang for us! I would recommend this tour. My... More

We did two trips. Malahide castle and howth and then glendalough and powerscourt. Great value. Sit upstairs and listen to the commentary from the driver, (difficult if you have hearing impairment). Interesting guide at malahide castle, loved the views of the coast on the way to howth and howth itself was quaint. The trip also included another open top bus... More

Great service apart from one driver who wouldn't pick us up but actually did us a favour as needed to get to the jail and the next bus over took him - love Dublin !!

Can't recommend enough...great bus drivers on the 'live' tours with funny sense of humour had us in stitches on times. Excellent Irish music on board too.

We had a day in Dublin, which of course isn't nearly long enough. We thought the best way to travel from attraction to attraction would be the hop-on-hop off bus. At only $17 Euro, it seemed a good value. We started out at Trinity College (We had done the Book of Kells the afternoon before when we arrived in Dublin.),... More

Excellent tour around Dublin, with a great running commentary of interesting information with a load of Irish humour thrown in to make your day - no head phones here. We were in Dublin for one day in early June and I am pretty certain the price was 10 Euros for the day rather than the 19 Euros it states on... More

On a whim, we decided to do the "Hop on. hop off" tour, and we were glad we did! We caught a beautiful day on Dublin, and the tour guide provided excellent commentary during our tour. There is a lot to Dublin beyond the Temple Bar area, and it was great to see areas like Phoenix Park.

Hello Brandon, Thanks a million for a five star review. I'm happy you describe the live commentary as excellent and the weather was good. It's interesting you mention Phoenix Park, because many visitors come to Dublin and don't regard it as a main attraction. It's the biggest park in Europe and you can see the house of the Prime minister... More
