What to expect

Tour the streets of Dublin on our stylish red open-top buses.

Our hop-on, hop-off sightseeing tour gives you the freedom to explore your way. You can hop on and off the bus at any of our 30+ designated Big Bus stops, as many times as you wish within your ticket validity. All located near Dublin’s best attractions, you're free to delve deeper into the city at your own pace. With buses passing through every 15 minutes, simply rejoin the tour when you’re ready.

With our Dublin hop-on hop-off tours, you need only get off at the stops you want. Or opt to stay on the bus for the entire tour and let us take you for a scenic spin around this vibrant city.

Hop off and explore the beauty of Nassau Street, then plan a visit to the National Art Gallery. We'll take you to Merrion Square where you can stroll around the Georgian-style gardens, then grab a bite to eat (in Temple Bar) at College Green Plaza. Visit two of the most well-known cathedrals in Ireland, The Christ Church Cathedral and St Patrick's. And if you really want to experience the Dublin lifestyle, quench your thirst with a nice, cold pint of Guinness, freshly made from the Guinness Storehouse.

Begin your journey on either the Blue or Red Line at the first Bus Stops, located on Upper O'Connell Street. The Red Line has 27 stops and the Blue Line has 28, so your journey will be packed full of Irish fun!
