Really enjoyed this! Very charismatic drivers.

We did the blue route on Saturday, and began with a male driver, who was full of funny facts about old sayings and Georgians not washing. "Stiletto in the ghetto" ... HAHAHA... read more

We did the blue route on Saturday, and began with a male driver, who was full of funny facts about old sayings and Georgians not washing. "Stiletto in the ghetto" ... HAHAHA. Anyway, we laughed pretty hard and we still learned something and saw everything. Then when we got back on at Dublin castle, we had Lisa (?) I think... More

Joined the tour at Kilmainham Gaol and stayed on until the Guiness storehouse. Excellent commentary by Lisa on the blue tour. Was made better by the fact wedding have to use earphones. Got the bus again later but this time, no driver commentary just a recording. Good way to see round Dublin tho and learn some history

11 of us visited Dublin - some for the first time. The red hop off bus was great and money well spent. It took you to all the best places to see. Absolutely loved the live commentary on the blue route with Matt "with two ts". Definitely recommend if you are visiting.

Informative and funny with some singing included for free! Tour guide Barry was great, and even taught us how to read Irish number plates. we have the 48hr pass so did the whole 2hr tour in one go on the first day, and then hop on hop off on the second. Great!

Thoroughly enjoyed this hop on hop off trip of Dublin. 2 days 2 adults 1child $35 euros....bargain compared to London as a comparison. My advice after 2 visits to Ireland in 6 years is to do the entire loop to start off with, note places of interest and then plan your trip of the city over the following days. The... More
