This was an excellent tour we did it twice . Once at night and once during the day. Both times were excellent. Very informative and still fun. Our hide both times was Bernard and he was the best guide ever. Very knowsledgable. Give that man a pay ride he deserves it. Try the tour it's a hoot

Took the tour of Dublin and got excellent value and service . 18 euro 2 days around the city . The staff were really good from the Visitor centre to the drivers . Unbelievable driving skills in very tight spaces . Kilmainham Gaol is the tops please visit there . Commentary wonderful .

This is a great way to get round Dublin and see all the main attractions. The 2 day ticket was excellent value made even cheaper by booking online at the hotel. It was good to have a mixture of live and recorded commentary, the drivers are very helpful and not only give a full history to the sights but throw in some humour too! Would definitely use the company again.

We found the price for a 2 day ticket to be reasonable. We chose the red bus because we had used them earlier this year in Barcelona. We were equally satisfied in Dublin. Conveniently, we were able to catch the bus at Kilmainham Gaol right across from our hotel Hilton Kilmainham. Cash only when boarding throughout the route. I just wish there were busses running the same route in the opposite direction. It would make it much easier to get to where you want to go without having to take the long way around each time.

Excellent way to get to/from the major places to visit - just hop on/hop off as you need to. Some buses have recorded commentary, some have the driver giving the commentary, and some have a dedicated guide. All the drivers/guides we had were excellent, and it is really worth the money.
The first time we did the complete circuit, lasting an hour or so, and then continued round again to get off at the stops. Would say that this is a must-do on a visit to Dublin
