Our first driver was miserable didn't speak and we were thinking this is the worse hop on/off bus we have ever done. Then we changed buses and got on a bus with Eoin and what a difference we stayed on his bus the rest of the time.....he was fantastic and informative and funny......he made the trip great.

We bought tickets and attempted to get on the first time at Glasnevin Cemetery. We got to the cemetery about 1300 and waited nearly two hours and it never came so we took a taxi to City Centre. The stops were hard to locate--there were supposed to be visible signs to find the stops--but we could not find them. We... More

We were told that the buses run every 15 mins or so. They give you a map and show you the lines. There are two lines that run a blue line and red line. We were also told that the buses run late into the evening. None of this was true. It was a waste of time and money. We... More

Poor service. We tried getting on the bus first thing in the morning. As we were walking up to the bus to get on, it pulled away without even looking. We hustled to get on another stop and when we got on the bus, we found out there was no live commentator. I was looking forward to learning about the... More

Dublin is a small city but I would always go for a hop on hop off tour every place I visit. All of the drivers were friendly and helpful, and most of the busses had live commentary which was at times hilarious and of course informative - loved the singing from Matt with 2 Ts! Only down side was that... More

I like doing these tours on the first day to get a good seemed of direction. The folks were very nice and helpful. The Good: The Tour gave us a really good sense of the city, particularly in the areas of Trinity and St Stephens Green. Also, the bus driver was incredibly nice. I didn't have printed tickets, and the... More

I've done both this hop on hop off (red buses) and the Dublin Hop on and Hop off (green buses) the first time I came to Dublin, and I honestly prefer the green ones. The red ones took much longer than the green did (sometimes two green would come in the time it would take for one red one to... More
