Recently in Dublin decided to see the city using the Dublin Bus hop on/off tour. This is the city tour by the Dublin Bus Company, green and cream open top buses. Not to be confused with the other 2 that run in the city! We...More

This was a nice half day tour. We left at 11:00am and went to Malahide castle, which is interesting to visit and is a legitimate castle but rather small and almost more like a mansion than a castle. It was occupied until the 1970s so...More

We bought tickets on a whim and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. We used both the recorded and live commentary. Both worked for us. The live commentary was sprinkled with 'dad jokes'. All the drivers were great. My suggestions are to ask the driver for a...More

Hopped on and off for 2 days. Ken was the best driver, especially his singing. The others were good too. Very nice way to get oriented quickly in a new city 5/5 would hop on again!

We payed ahead, picked up our passes at the airport-very efficient. Took the 757 bus right to our hotel. Used the Hop-on-hop-off bus extensively, but it's not super efficient, since it runs clockwise, so you can't really use it to get somewhere specific, unless you...More
