This is one of many typical tour buses of Dublin.
You can get on one that hops on and off at the major attractions for about $15.00.
We just walked the city by foot. It is a very walkable city unless you are tired and then I recommend this method.
a great way to see most of the sites is to take the city bus tour. of course, riding the tour bus you pretty much stick out. you'll get heckled by the locals, but who cares... you are there to see the town. and not everyone is like that. the cool thing aboot the bus tour is that for a 24hour period, you can get off whenever and ride the next one. that way if you know what you want to see, or where you want to go this allows you to do so.

Most of Dublin’s tourist attractions can easily be reached on foot, but if you do not intend to spend much time in Dublin a City Tour by bus might be an alternative. The tour starts and ends at McDonald’s on O’Connell Street, and buses leave every 10-15 minutes. You can get off at any of the 16 stops around the city and continue on with the next bus. The complete tour lasts about 1 hour 30 minutes and a ticket costs 12.50 Euros, is valid for a day, and you will get reductions on some of the admissions along the way.
This bus is the best way to go from monument to monument in Dublin.
A 24 hours ticket costs you something like 18 euros (?).
You can hop on and hop off whenever you want, with the same ticket.
We have taken this touristical bus for going around DUBLIN. you can leave the bus at predestinated stations and do the rest by walking . A good choice :-))
