A fantastic service and the bus drivers are so welcoming. We had one driver who sang us an Irish song, great fun. The buses are so regular, you never have to wait long at a bus stop before you're on your way again.

The blue bus tour was excellent. Alan, our driver, was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic in sharing the anecdotes and details about Dublin. Very witty too! He was helpful and friendly and warmly greeted the passengers. Highly recommended.

It was a beautiful day in Ireland for a tour but this one was not particularly exciting. Nothing really negative to say but not one that I will be reminiscing about on my Ireland holiday.
