I had a wait about 15 minutes before the next bus came along outside St Stephens Green recently, and Willie was there to promote the tours. He was such a nice person, really helpful and friendly. An absolute star at his job. Thankyou Willie.

Seeing Dublin in this manner is well worth the price of the ticket. The commentary, whether recorded or live, is entertaining and educational. Being able to 'hop on and off' is great to give one the opportunity to shop, explore or just soak up the city. It rained all day the day we were touring, but we were dressed for the weather and still had a good time!

We booked our two day ticket on line saving time and money. Note there are two tour companies with similar names...this is the red bus. They have3 tours, red, blue and a nighttime tour and the two daytime tours cross paths in the main section so you have frequent service tomost places you would like to get to.

For our first time on we just rode the whole route learning about the various places we could visit. Then we used the bus the next 11/2 days to get around to the various attractions we chose.

The bus does have multi language tours available, staff to help out at the major stops and some pretty knowledgable and funny drivers. Brian was our guide on the first day, while they all use similar stories he had the best comedic timing and dry wit to pull it off. On our second day we had a female driver I forgot her name but she had all sorts of interesting extra bits of information.

The ticket also gets you discounts to some of the attractions and 2 for 1 meals at at least 3 restaurants.

What a legend. Hilarious driver commentary and way more character than the pre-recorded international bus option. I always love doing a bus tour in a new city, but Eoin made this one stand out. He was really helpful too.
After one stop we sprinted to the next station to make sure we picked him up again rather than get another driver!

We paid for the two day tour and were not disappointed. The live tour was absolutely fantastic. The first day we got on and off at Kilmainham Gaol and Dublin zoo (our tour guide was the very funny bus driver). On the second day of the holiday we stayed on the bus to listen to the hour and a half full commentary which was done by a lovely lady named Patsy who was extremely knowledgeable and interesting. We learnt so much about Dublin, just by sitting and listening to her on the tour. The buses came around roughly every 10 minutes and there were stops littered around. We went around Phoenix Park, the Guinness factory and saw all the historical buildings such as Oscar Wilde's house which we would never have noticed if we had not been on the bus. I would definitely recommend this to anyone visiting Dublin, it was well worth the price and we were left with a lot of interesting information about Dublin's history.
