Want to see the sights of Dublin but tight on time?

Book our sights of Dublin Day Tours for a fun day out!.This is a beautiful coach tour if you are looking for things to do in Dublin.
This tour runs from 10 am to 4:30 pm.
10am The Gresham Hotel on O'Connell Street
10:05 The Ashfield Hostel on D'Olier Street
From the city centre we travel out the coast road through the picturesque port of Dun Laoghaire and onto Dalkey town.
Here you can do the Dalkey Castle tour. After this you will have time to stroll around Dalkey town and browse amongst the different shops and cafes from artisan bakeries to bookshops and The Tramyard Market.
Dalkey is one of the prettiest towns in Ireland http://irsh.us/2mmivBX
This area is known for its famous residents such as Bono, Enya, The Edge and Eddie Irvine to name a few.
We then take the bus for a short but very scenic drive out by Colliemore Harbour where you will view Dalkey Island and continue on to Vico Road for amazing sea views and we pass Victoria Castle which is now the private home of Enya. We squeeze the coach through the granite arch in Killiney where you enter Killiney Hill park.
There are a few walks you can do here and all of the walks offer the best of views that Killiney hill has to offer.
After Killiney Hill you get back on the coach and we take you to Avoca for lunch and shopping.
You will have built up a thirst this point of the tour so we take you now into the Dublin Mountains to visit Johnnie Fox's where you can enjoy a nice pint in front of one of the peat fires and marvel at the wonderments hanging from the walls and ceilings.
We reluctantly take you from here and take you back down the mountains taking in some more amazing views of Dublin Bay.
We get back to the city no later than 4:30pm.
