Tyrone is great

We rode the bus several times during our two day stay and Tyronne was the best driver. He was interactive and sang songs while the other drivers just let the automated system play.

If you have 3 days or only 1 day to explore Dublin, this is a great way to do it. The buses come by every 15 minutes at scheduled stops at all the main attractions of Dublin. You also get wonderful insight and knowledge of the history of Dublin. The drivers are extremely courteous and helpful if you need to... More

The hop on hop off bus is the best way to get around Dublin. We only got one day pass but wish we had gotten a 2 day pass. The drivers were wonderful story tellers and just plain fun to listen too as they took you around Dublin.

Bus driver was great and learned a lot about the city. But we didn't get the most out of the day ticket as we waited more than 30 mins for the bus and as it didn't show up near Phoenix park we ended up walking to Temple Bar which took quite some time. Not as many frequent buses as is... More

Dear Customer Thanks for your review and we're delighted you enjoyed the tour. We're sorry you were left waiting at the Phoenix Park, there are still some delays caused by the LUAS cross city tram works which may have accounted for this, but our buses do depart every 10-15 minutes which is the most frequent Hop on Hop off service...

Johnny Mac was our driver and tour guide around Dublin today. He provided great historical information sprinkled with a bit of wonderful Irish humor. The bus was clean and easy to board. Dublin has a lot of sights to offer so make sure you have plenty time to see it all.

I highly recommend getting the Dublin Bus as not only it is easier to get some great photos all around you but the speaker driving the bus tells you a lot about Dublin past as well you can hop on or hop off anytime you like. Highly recommended.

Dependable service and great guide comments. This method of getting around Dublin is flexible and truly a great value! The Dublin Bus tour takes you to so many great stops. Remember some venues have separate admission costs. Plan your budget and the two day ticket package is a sweet deal! You cannot see all of Dublin's best stops in only... More

There are so many things to see and do in Dublin, that you can waste time trying to plan your day. I would highly recommend buying a day ticket for the Dublin 'Hop on Hop off' bus tour. It covers all the main sights of Dublin, you just choose which sight you want to see, get off at that stop,... More
