We've been on many bike tours around Europe and the US (12?) and this was our least favorite. The "touring bike" was a foldable travel bike, with small wheels and a horribly uncomfortable seat - perfect if you want a short trip and need to carry your bike into an apartment, quite inappropriate for touring a city, especially one with cobblestones! Brian would be a wonderful person to share a beer in a pub, as he is comical and passionate about Ireland, but he was too bent on entertaining and limited on informing. We learned more from the second guide, who was added to help keep our overly large group from becoming separated. Look elsewhere.

Had an amazing time on our bike tour with Dublin City Bike Tours last weekend!

We were quite a big group, 10 chaps on a stag-do, but our guide Brian, was more than comfortable leading us through the narrow streets of central Dublin. The tour covered several of the cities highlights and also some not so well known places on the outskirts, stopping at a nice pub halfway round before swinging back into the centre.

Brian was an awesome guide and a fountain of knowledge with loads of interesting facts about the city. He was also super patient with our somewhat disorganised group.

Couldn't recommend Dublin City Bike Tours more highly for something to do in the city, we had an absolute blast. One tip I have - I'd recommend doing the tour at the start of your stay in Dublin if you want some tips for places to eat, drink, dance etc as Brian is seriously in the know for the best spots in Dublin.

Cheers, Brian!

Our family of 5 took a private bike tour after arriving in Dublin - we were pretty jet lagged so having some fresh air helped to keep us awake and the bike tour itself gave us some bearings of the city.

Evan (I think that was our guide's name!) was very mellow and easy. He kindly waited for us - we ended up being over 20 minutes late due to the difficulty of finding a taxi for 5.

We learned a bit about certain parts of the city, and enjoyed the leisurely pace taken as we made our way riding on the other side of the road for the first time!

Given the fog that we were in, the amount of history and overall information he gave was just right - he didn't barrage us with an overwhelming amount of history and we had some nice stretches of simply biking and taking in the scenery.

In retrospect, I think our tour was supposed to include a pub or some kind of eating/drinking establishment, but it was just as well that we didn't end until going to one - we could hardly stand upright as it was.

We were actually a very small group (3) and Brian went out of his way to personalize the tour for us. He is very passionate about Ireland and his love for his country was lovely to see. Would definitely recommend for a friend!

Bike tour through Dublin- one of the best things to do in order to see this City! Brian being good fun when guiding through Dublin, lots of interesting stops and explanations, made this a well worth 2 1/2 hour round cycle tour with a little stop at the pub in between. Really recommend- ask for Brian doing the tour....
