I always believe a hop on hop off bus is a great way to see the city. This was very convenient with lots of stops.

More than expected

This was a perfect way to get a feel for the whole city of Dublin. We hadn’t realized that there was a discussion about all the sites but there was and our driver was excellent. We learned so much and saw so much that we felt comfortable walking all around Dublin the next day. I suggest everyone new to Dublin start out with this tour. We also did the night tour just to get a different perspective and see a bit more.

Not worth the money
Karen_P

The driver did an excellent job as driver and tour guide. Unfortunately the bus stopped running to Kilmainham Gaol and we were given bad information about the closest stops. Between that and the infrequency of the buses we were only able to ride the bus one time. A táxi would have saved us over 40 euros.

We waited over an hour for one bus. And we arrived at 5 for the last bus from Guinness and one never showed. We would like a refund…

Useful way to get to most interesting sites
Joel_M

Nice way to see city and all the major sites. Good access to most everything. The bus drivers though we're quite different in their presentation on the tour, some much better than others. If they just use the prerecorded guide, it wasn't as interesting and was very difficult to hear. It's a good way to travel the city, but traffic can possibly delay your time to get from place to place.

Wasted time!
DianeA_R
, Jun 2022
We only had one day in Dublin. The busses took so much time to catch between stops! It wasn’t clear where to catch them. We one got on and off twice because so much time was wasted waiting on the bus. We we immediately approached by the Green bus company when we arrived at the port but we already had booked and paid for this bus. The green busses were everywhere.

Where’s the Abbey?

The history of it all. I was disappointed that the Abbey Theater wasn’t mentioned, what happened to it?- As many times as the name Guinness was mentioned, you’d think they own the tour company!

Good service/night tour worth it with Tony
Cherie_R
, May 2022
Good service-buses are confusing as there are multiple hop on services at same stop areas. We got on 2 wrong buses before finding correct one then had to take a cab to get to a scheduled tour. because the Toni g didn’t work. Got the 2 day pass but really wasn’t worth it for us as as we mostly walked and didn’t have time to get on & off bus. The night tour with Tony was great! He is authentic, knowledgeable and humorous-very much enjoyed his driving tour.

A great way to see the highlights of Dublin. We researched the places we wanted to visit and use the hop on bus to go there. While on the bus we were educated on many places around town.

The group was a little bit bigger than I thought it would be, but the tour guide was knowledgeable about the area. In the end, it was an enjoyable experience.
