It is very easy to book the Dublin City Tour online and plan to see all the sites in one day if you start early. The buses are very clean, commentary excellent and the bus driver was really helpful and courteous. The bus frequency is very good as well. The tour included a lot of monuments in the city and gave a comprehensive view of Dublin in 2 hours.

Kept up to date on changes of where pick was located, they were on time with launch & the tour. The safety features were well outlined before the start. The tour was well done by being amusing, factual, & bringing in some of the known city lore.

A really great, entertaining tour. We laughed a lot, but also learned. Highly recommended!

Lovely pleasant journey down the river with guided tour commentary.

Good trip & staff very knowledgeable & friendly.Good value.
