Discount of 15% when you book online.

Ok, so Dublin is brimming with culture (you may have heard of locals James Joyce, Oscar Wilde, Samuel Beckett?) and, yes, history has etched itself on the city over the last 2000 years? But how exactly are you going to fit that kind of sightseeing into one visit? The Dublin Hop on-Hop off Bus Tour, that’s how.

This is your golden ticket. This is how to see Dublin, your way, your time and minus the sore feet. And you won’t miss a beat. Along your merry tour, all of Dublin’s most loved, talked about and essential attractions will show their face.

From 9am, the tours operate daily. You can get on and off at any of our 33 stops dotted at the most popular sites around the city. Hop off for a snoop around Kilmainham Gaol and you’re free to hop on again for a visit to Christ Church Cathedral. Hop on-hop off. Easy.

The Dublin Bus Tour has two exciting routes to offer - with just one ticket! The original route, which is a 90 minute tour, visits Dublin's most popular attractions and has 24 great stops ideally located atround the city. The Docklands route is a 35 minute tour which visits the Dublin Dockland's area. This route has 9 stops ideally located at the most important attractions. The route showcases the fascinating history of this fabulous area of Dublin. Along the route, you will get the chance to see the wonderful U2 Graffiti Wall, the Jeanie Johnston Famine Memorial ship, and some magnificent architecture in an area which is becoming increasingly popular among visitors. At Stop 7 of the Docklands Tour, you can join the brilliant Dublin Bay Cruise for a voyage around the beautiful Dublin Bay to either Howth or Dún Laoghaire.

We’re multilingual, too, with live commentary every 10 – 15 minutes and pre-recorded available in 10 languages operating every 30 minutes. The even better news is that your ticket is valid on both tours and we are giving you an extra day for FREE. Oh, and remember: kids go FREE (2 under 14 with a fare paying adult).

Lions, tigers and bears at Dublin Zoo? Done. The golden Book of Kells and the cobbled alcoves of Trinity College? You got it. Getting thirsty? Hop off at the Guinness Storehouse for the porter story and a soothing sip. Think that’s tasty? The discounts at selected attractions will have you licking your lips. And who better than a local Dubliner to guide you through it all? It’s an unwritten fact that Dubliners invented charm. All our guides are Fáilte Ireland accredited and, at this stage, they’re attractions in themselves!

If your legs need a stretch, why not try a walking tour delivered by one of Dublin's best known historians. A Pat Liddy Walking Tour is a must do when in Dublin. It is normally €10, but it is available FREE to all Dublin Bus Hop-on Hop-off ticket holders!
