What people are saying about Dublin Castle

I wavered between 4-5 stars. I give the Drivers 5 Stars! We experienced 4 different drivers. The 1st one had an awesome sense of humor and kept us laughing. The 2 and 3 both were friendly and sang to us! The last was the only female who was witty, full of history and sang! Great drivers All 5 stars! The reason I would give 4 was the number of busses seems way less and it was sometimes a longer wait than advertised between busses. The online information conflicted with the actual facts of employees on-site. You can use phone ticket and driver will give you a printed ticket. If you get a printed ticket for 48 hours you don’t need a new one the 2nd day, 1 st ticket still works. You can buy ticket on site many people bought ticket directly from driver at random stops. So it is easier to use than web-site states. I love ❤️ the whole idea of hop on hop off tour and would definitely use this company again.

Once all the way around was very helpful. I had a goal in mind, so didn't hop back on this time, but got a great overview and some pictures, too, then focused in on my destination (EPIC museum).

It was a fantastic experience, myself, husband and kids thought it was brilliant. Staff were so lovely and accommodating we will definitely be doing the tour again.

Highly recommended!! The first round you should go through all 24 stations completely and from the second round you should get on and off as you wish

Punctual buses, nice drivers. If you download the app you can follow the bus live and don't stand around for ages at the bus stop.
