The DoDublin tours are the most popular in the city, and the buses are bright green and easy to spot! There’s only one route, but it covers all the major sights and tickets also include free walking tours and entry to the Little Museum of Dublin. The bus tour is given by a guide speaking English or via an audio-guide that covers 10 languages - the style of commentary alternates every half an hour, so you might think it’s worth waiting an extra 15 minutes for a live guide. Live bus tours are also available in Spanish and German, just check the timetable for when they run!
