Nice Celtic greeting on the quayside, with drummers and dancers. We walked into Dublin which took about 45mins, and once we were out of the port and by the Liffey was quite pleasant. After a few Guinness and a pub lunch we walked through Temple Bar, the stag and hen parties were just getting warmed up! We decided to take a taxi back to the ship and had been advised to cross the O’Connell bridge and go to the taxi rank on the right (the only way the taxis could go from here was to the docks, so no round trip!), that cost €9.50.

Did the Guiness Factory but was disappointed as it was ver commercialised. Hop on and off bus was interesting and worth the money.

We have been here three times previously and had two days in port on this occasion. We bought tickets online, prior to our visit for the Green HOHO bus routes. There were two routes and the tickets covered two days on both routes and also entry to the Little Museum of Dublin, which was very good. We got off the bus at times as we wished, visiting the Museum of Modern Arts that was in an impressive old building and taking the chance to see more of various locations in the city. It was a bank holiday weekend in Ireland when we were there and everywhere was much busier that we have experienced before, even in the summer. We had planned to stay in the city for the Saturday night, but as everywhere was so packed and there were a number of large groups of people around (lots of stag parties etc.), we decided to return to the ship for late dinner. We had complementary shuttle bus tickets Fred The cruise company as we were booked on freedom fare. The shuttle busses out were fine, but we had to wait almost 45 minutes for the return shuttle in both Dublin and Belfast as that was the frequency of the busses in the late afternoon, yet we had not been given any details of the times of the busses. I think that was very bad of Fred to run such a poor service and not even give out a timetable. Read Less

One of the best HoHo bus drivers. Live commentary and a great sense of humour. Great city and compact.

We took a taxi to the Guiness Storehouse, and then used the HOHO bus to get around to the other places we wanted to see. Had a wonderful pub lunch at "The Bank"

Took city tour. Very good tour. Passed up Guinness factory. Too crowded. Accidentally wandered into famous pub, Stags Head. Highlight as the food was unbelievable good. Nice people, good ales, whiskeys, beer. Highly recommend this place. Try the beef cooked in Guinness with mashed potatoes on top. Extremely good. Read Less

DUBLIN: Here is an example why you should always get along with your tablemates on cruises. On a 2011 Celebrity Cruise on the old Century from Vancouver to Alaska and then to San Diego we were at a table of six, with a couple from England and a couple from Dublin. In 2014 the couple from outside of London decided to fly to Chicago, rent a car for 30 days and follow the lyrics of the Bobby Troupe song "Route Sixty-Six." They stayed three nights with us outside of St. Louis as they did the 2,000 miles along the way. 2015 it was the turn of Ronan and Katherine in Dublin. They met us at the ship at 10 am. A four or five hour tour would have been great. Instead we apparently held them hostage all day. We got an insider's view of the Dublin region, including lunch at a country club and dinner at their home. 12 1/2 hours later we were dropped off back at the ship. While we would have liked to have paid for something, we couldn't. An all day tour plus meals…total cost ZERO. Lesson learned…make friends at the cruise ship dinner table. Read Less
