We're great travelers but not good tourists so this was new to us and we didn't regret it for a minute. We paid 17EUR each (the tickets are cheaper on arrival at Dublin airport that on board by 2 euros). We spent 2 days jumping on and off seeing the main sights of Dublin including Trinity College, Teeling Distillery, Guinness... More

The bus tours the whole of the city in one direction. Most of the drivers keep you relaxed and interested by adding historical details to jokes, and even singing songs! Some are a bit too relaxed - if you are really bound by time a taxi might be preferable. A bus comes normally every 10-15 minutes, except when a guy... More

This is a nice way to see Dublin and visit all the major sites. Suggest you get the live commentary as it tends to have a bit more information (and some humour).

We had the 72 hour Freedom pass and found it an excellent way to get round Dublin. We picked up our passes in the airport terminal and used them to get the City Centre. The drivers are all very knowledgable and friendly, Tyrone even had us all singing along with him which made the trip very memorable. A great way... More

This was an excellent way of seeing the city and getting to each of the attractions we wanted to visit. We had around 5/6 different drivers over the 2 days and they were all funny and entertaining and made the trips thoroughly enjoyable. You can get a discount to the Guinness storehouse with the ticket which helped. Drivers were very... More

It's always helpful to have access to wifi when you are travelling alone or with a group. We can search for places to visit, view map and update friends as well as family members about our whereabouts. Posting live and online videos & pictures make other people want to visit the place even more. Good way to promote tourism. Staff... More

The tour isn't the most exciting thing to do but it will show you the high points of the city. The buses are handicapped accessible for a wheelchair or scooter and the drivers are very helpful. For those of you who can go upstairs it is a lot more exciting.... The price is good for 1 day but it is... More
