About Us

Established in 1987, Dublin Bus is the main public transport company in Dublin. It is a subsidiary of Córas Iompair Éireann which is owned by the Irish Government. Dublin Bus carries over 500,000 passengers a day on its core services and also offers Dublin Sightseeing tours on a daily basis.

The first sightseeing tour took place in 1988 and was called the Grand Dublin Tour. It consisted of 1 bus that did a 3 hour tour around Dublin City and its surrounds. The tour departed twice a day at 10.30am and 2.30pm. As popularity grew this has transpired into a fleet of 23 open top buses, 4 coastal buses, 2 ghost buses and our latest addition, The 1916 Tour Beyond Barricades bus.

The City Tour buses depart every 10 to 15 minutes on a loop around the city taking in all the major attractions. While the Coastal tours operate daily along the northern and southern coasts of Dublin Bay and the Ghostbus operates nightly with two tours on weekends.

We also operate a pre recorded multilingual tour in the following languages; Irish, English, French, German, Spanish, Italian, Russian, Polish, Japanese and Chinese

With the exception of the multilingual tour all our guides provide a live commentary, are trained by Fáilte Ireland and will show you the city and it's surrounds as only a native can.

Our most popular tour is the hop on hop off tour. It operates two routes, stops at 33 of Dublin's major attractions and is the best way to view all that Dublin City Centre has to offer.
