This was a fun experience, lots of good information and managed to see more of Dublin than we could have done on foot.

Great tour, our driver Kenny was superb!! Very friendly, voice of an angle. I think he must have been in a choir when he was younger. Could really hit the high notes. He knew all of Dublin well, he must have cycled the streets as kid religiously on a black and green bike. He pointed out where his first love... More

The tour was very neat, all of the stops were interesting, and it gave us a great overview of Dublin. The driver Dennis, however, was the best part about this tour. He created amazing atmosphere on the bus by communicating with the passengers, singing songs, and giving us great recommendations on what to do and where to go in Dublin.... More

My fiancée and I used this service on a recent long weekend and it's really good value for money. Taxis will be quicker, but more expensive and not as fun or educational. Drivers all very friendly and amusing. Make sure you get on the live commentary tours. If you can, get on Joe's bus, very friendly funny chap. Buses arrive... More

Not impressed. Couldn't buy a ticket on the bus, had to prebook even though only wanted to go a couple of stops and bus was empty.

Went on this tour to pass some time. The driver recommended to take tour first and then go back to the places of interest. I loved the tour. Loved the songs and all the history. Our driver Dennis was a joy to travel with. I had only one day in Dublin but it would easily take 2 days to see... More

This is so good. €22 per person, ticket lasts 48 hours and they have 2 tour routes - brilliant deal! We just sat on for the main tour but you can use it to get between places really easily. Buses are every 15 minutes, and every other one is multilingual. The original tour takes about 1h45, not sure about the... More

I would highly recommend the Visitor Leap Card to anyone visiting Dublin for 1, 3, or 5 days. It's cheap and unlimited use of the public transit system. There's wifi on-board. The buses were mostly on time - no more than 10 minutes late in my experience.
