we had a great time with Eoghan. He was very knowledgable and had a lot of interesting stories to tell. We have learned a lot about Dublin and had a good laugh. Thank you for this good experience !

Great choice, with the Dublin Pass you enjoy a variety of attractions that would be much more expensive if you purchased each one individually. I highly recommend it to anyone visiting Dublin.

The pass helps you a lot to optimize your resources and allows you to visit the main attractions !!!!

This was fun and took us into parts of Dublin we probably never would have explored ourselves!

Excellent, knowledgeable driver wuth sense of humour.
