We're part of the fabric of Dublin City and we take great pride in delivering a real and authentic experience, one steeped in history but one that also celebrates the city as she evolves.

We aim to strike the perfect balance between informative and entertaining. Our guides are natural entertainers, and they love what they do!

FROM HUMBLE BEGINNINGS...

DoDublin began life in 1988, and was originally called the "Grand Dublin Tour." It started off with only 1 bus that provided a 3 hour tour around Dublin City and departed twice daily. As popularity grew the fleet of buses began to expand and today we operate 24 open top buses, with 2 day-tour buses and 2 Ghostbus tour buses. DoDublin also provide the Airlink Express buses - the fastest and best value transport link between Dublin Airport and the city which currently operates with a fleet of 24 buses.

DoDublin is part of Dublin Bus, the main public transport company in Dublin and is a subsidiary of Córas Iompair Éireann which is owned by the Irish Government.
