Short Stop in Dublin

Dublin has many city bus tours with a daily rate. All are worth the ticket price if you're traveling around the city for a day. You get a good running commentary on the sites as well as a map. Some drivers are better than others, but all have the gift of craic and will make the trip seem shorter. All the major sites are included as stops or are within easy walking distance of a stop. The driver can tell you where to get off along with how his mother is doing, his uncles health and the latest sports news.
Dublin isn't a big city, but you can waste a lot of time walking. Liberal sampling of the black stuff or the Jameson's distillery samples will also necessitate the use of the bus system. Just hop any bus going by and pay the driver. Your ticket will be good throughout the rest of the day. The only confusing bit is remembering which of the bus tours you started with. Especially so with liberal samplings at the Guinness Storehouse or Jamesons Distillery. The buses look similar and can be confusing. We got on the wrong one and were politely pointed to the door when showing our ticket. The right one was along in a minute.
Dublin City Tour buses are double-deckers and can be fun in good weather in small doses. Dublin is a pretty dirty and dusty city so those with allergies beware.

How long do the buses run? The first tours in the morning are at 9:30am. The last stop is anywhere from 4 to 5:30pm, depending on the season. Our ticket was good for 24 hours, so the next day when we were out and about, we used the bus system for a couple of hours (until our ticket expired) to simply get around.
Where can I look for more information? You can learn more about the tours offered by visiting www.irishcitytours.com.
Warning: If you're traveling during the Christmas holidays, keep in mind that there are no tours running from December 19 to 26. However, we were able to get on a bus on New Year's Day.
