Traveler Tips

The driver(s) do not stop at each individual stop, so advance notice will need to be given.
This activity is good idea to make easy the distance between all the tourist attractions, but it isn't the best choice if you want to know the highlights of the city and enjoy the journey, it's almost impossible.
Make sure you ask the driver if a bus is coming back to a stop as we got stuck up North at the cemetery and had to cab it to the next stop down (which we found out was closed

Don’t use
Brittany_V, May 2022
Terrible. Buses run every hour where the other companies run every 20 mins. Don’t waste your time. You’ll be better off walking

For some reason the buses were unavailable and we will be requesting a refund. I had to quickly get another bus ticket so that we would not be late for a ticketed tour. I have used them in other cities with no problems. First time they didn’t come through.
Karen_O, May 2022
The ticket sent by red bus sent me to its competitors!! Who informed me red bus only works weekends. Go Dublin offered a cheaper rate! Said request refund. Red line did not refund!! What a scam!
Too much time between...
Thomas_M, May 2022
Too much time between buses at stops. Seem disorganized. Tapes of attractions missing in spots. Shoddy

Verify before you buy.
Melissa_G, Sep 2021
I would verify the tour is operating before you purchase for the day(s). The website lets you purchase tickets even if the tour is not operating the day you requested. Still trying to get a refund.

Truly Disgusted
Minda_B, Sep 2021
The bus never showed up no matter where we waited. It ruined our day in Dublin. Your service should not work with companies that require 24 hour cancellation for refund. We were unable to recoup any of our 85 dollar fee and we ended up having to grab taxis which required cash that we didn’t have. It truly was a horrible experience because of this bus issue. We were told twice that that bus never shows up and it’s atleast an hour between routes. Who has an hour to stand and wait while on holiday and wanting to take in a city???? Multiple times!! Truly disappointed and sad because we purchased tickets to EpIC museum and were not able to attend due to waiting half the day for a bus that never came.

Long wait

Bus driver was helpful, but one hour between stops is way too long. The other company was every half hour.

The Experience Sucked
ThomasR_S, Jul 2021
The most memorable thing about this experience was that after searching for the ticket redemption office and being told that it wasn’t the right one and then walking another few miles searching, only to discover that the first one was the right one but that City Sightseeing buses were only running on weekends due to CCCCOOVID. I had booked the bus online in May for the 20th of July and even received reminders online. The level of my anger cannot be described. Not only that but the clerk in the ticket office was more concerned about my lack of mask than in trying to help me. A true mask Nazi.
