Why take a Hop-on Hop-off bus tour of Dublin?

Whether you want to hurry around Dublin's sights or indulge in your own Joycian odyssey, hop-on hop-off bus tours let you see the lively city at your own pace. Here are five places worth alighting for!

  • 1. St. Patrick's Cathedral

    Don't just watch the ancient exterior pass you by! Take the time to discover the breathtaking decor of one of Dublin's oldest buildings. Another bus will be along in a while.

  • 2. Guinness Storehouse

    Discover the history and brewing techniques behind Guinness, Ireland's most famous tipple. There's even a rooftop bar for enjoying the view over a few pints. It's not as if you're driving!

  • 3. Dame Street

    The old thoroughfare counts Dublin Castle among its vibrant mix of historic and modern buildings. It's also just a stone's throw from Temple Bar and Trinity College!

  • 4. Kilmainham Gaol

    Known as the "Irish Bastille," many significant political prisoners were held and, at times, executed here at Kilmainham. Want to learn about Ireland's fight for independence? Look no further.

  • 5. Dublin Zoo

    If the zoo's daily talks and feedings aren't up your street, alight here anyway for Phoenix Park - one of the largest walled city parks in Europe.

We used this whilst in Dublin, it was easy to book in my get your guide app, the pick up point was easy to find and the tour was good . The bus driver/tour guide was excellent describing the area in an interesting way and with some humour too.

Being able to hop on and hop off rather than stay on the bus the whole time. We bought a 2 day pass so could go back to places we didn’t have time for the day before. Friendly welcoming bus drivers.

Great way to see the history of Dublin. I have used this service in other cities and will most definitely use in the future. Our guide was both funny and knowledgeable.

Great. Driver was brilliant, singing and telling lots of funny stories. Really enjoyed this trip
