This was a great tour of Dublin. Our driver (Lisa Murtagh) provided a lot of good information and anecdotes, much more than the standard recorded dry talk
Efficient and entertaining driver.
Reviewer: Georgina Kerr
Although we only had time to visit one site, we had a very entertaining driver on a very rainy day. It was a great way to see the city on a short time line.
The hop on hop off (HOHO) bus was just what we were looking for. We had been to Dublin before on a tour, and didn't see all we wanted. We had different drivers, as we DID hop off and on, and they were very informative, answering questions when we boarded, since we needed to see if we were on the correct ""line"".

The hop on hop off bus was great but we were very disappointed that we paid so much more by booking through shore excursions. In Dublin the price was only 10 euros which was cheaper by half. Not impressed. I would not recommend booking this tour online but wait until you arrive in Dublin. I don't understand the price discrepancy.
