DoDublin is the original Dublin Hop on Hop off tour company. We've been entertaining visitors to our town since 1988. 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! Put simply, no-one knows Dublin better than the DoDublin guides. Whether you're looking for a tour around the city, an amazing day trip out of town or a thrilling night-time activity, we have a tour to suit you.


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.

The Ghostbus tour is a great ‘alternative’ night out in Dublin city. Ideal for anyone with an interested in darker side of life. The tour storytellers are experienced professional actors who know how to put on a great show. 

The bus itself is an incredible venue for all things macabre, with sinister maze like corridors and rooms below leading up to a stark Victorian theatre above, complete with blood red velvet curtains.

Get a crash course in the art of body snatching, hear of sinister Dublin surgeon Dr Clossey, learn of the inspiration behind Bram Stoker's most famous character Dracula, and much more.

The Dublin Ghostbus tour was the first of its kind in the world. The idea has now been copied in many cities but the Dublin Ghostbus tour remains the original and the best.
