Total waste of money. Would never recommend this service to anyone. The red line is supposed to run every 15 minutes. Didn't arrive until 40 minutes. Then, it was SO SLOW getting people on at each stop. The commentary was hard to hear and not...More

Great service on clean buses with good drivers and nice commentary on the sights. They run quite frequently so it is never too long a wait for the next one to come along. Pick up spots are clearly marked with their sign. Great way to...More

We use City Sightseeing everywhere we go in the world and never have a problem. Regular buses with commentary and all the main sites are covered. Would recommend booking online as normally cheaper.

The first thing I usually do when visiting a new city is the hop on/hop off bus. From experience, I know to always choose Citysightseeing for a good experience. The Dublin experience was the best so far! I experienced several drivers over my 24 hours...More

I was not impressed with this group, the clerks at the shop struggled to even smile at me. I think maybe she saw a note behind the counter reminding her to say "thank you"? Cause it happened on my way out. And a 10+ minute...More

Dublin City centre is quite small. Lots of hotels nearby. Easy walking. Sorry I can't name any but assure you most are within the city area.
