We took the Princess provided bus to the city center and saw the book of Kells and visited the Temple Bar area. We saw the castle and did our shopping in Dublin. Nice city with friendly people.

NCL charges a fortune for this tour, so if you can get cheaper transportation from the port, then do so and just book it online directly with Guinness. If you have time, do the Connoisseur experience, which can be booked online as well.

Because Dublin is a commercial port, Celebrity supplied a shuttle bus (which was accessible) but at an eyewatering cost of € 13 each! which dropped people off way outside the centre of Dublin. We have been to Dublin many times before so for a change we walked around the corner from the drop-off point to Pearce Station and jumped on the DART train to Bray. What a beautiful place and the scenery from the train was superb. The cost of a 45 minute journey, there and back was only € 6.50 each and the train was fully wheelchair accessible with staff on hand at all stations to assist. Read Less

Our third time in Dublin (the sixth port of call), so we just tok the free shuttle-bus to the city-centre (about 20 minutes each way). Lots to do in Dublin - whether independently or an organised trip.

Excellent, great live tour guide unlike regular hop on hop off, yet you could get off and on at will. Loved it.

We had been to Dublin before and had seen many of the places on the ships excursions. We walked around and explored on our own and also did an afternoon tea at the Waterbury hotel. All in all a great experience.

My hubby and I booked 2 tours in Dublin: 1) Guiness brewery, 2) Jameson Whiskey. Guiness was interesting but basically was a self guided tour by reading wall plaques as you made your way through the factory. Jameson was very interesting with a live person giving the history of the company and process. We also booked the special tasting for after the tour. A complete lesson in whiskey tasting. Would definitely go to Jameson again. IMPORTANT Book your tours online before arriving or you will wait a long time. Also book the shuttle from port to downtown. Read Less

We had 2 days in Dublin. First day was a standard "Irish Countryside & Glendalough" excursion through the cruise ship. It was a very pleasant drive and interesting old 1000 year old site. Our second day we walked into Dublin. We did a student led tour of Trinity College which included a ticket to enter the library and the book of Kells. Then we continued our walk to visit Dublin Castle and a walk past St. Patrick Cathedral. Returning to the ship, we walked past the Irish Famine memorial and other related museums and items. It was a great day, but we were tired by the end, having walked about 7 miles or so. You might take a shuttle in if you are not up to a lot of walking. Trinity College is fairly close to the shuttle if I remember from the map, and the major sites are near that, so you can save a couple of miles walking and still see everything, or walk less and see less.

Dublin is a big city with so many things to do. I enjoyed buying the hop on/off passes for a day and getting a full tour around the city for a relatively inexpensive price. Went and did the Guinness brewery tour which is impressive,and you can save almost 50% if you book online. Went to a local brewery "JW Sweetman" and had the best beer I've ever had in Europe, highly recommended. Booked dinner at "Celtic Nights" which reminded me of a Hawaii luau I once went to: packed full of culture, but not a local in-sight except for those performing. That being said, it was entertaining, and irish folk songs and step dancing is enjoyable (food was nothing to write home about, but that's not why you're there). WE do regret not being able to go to "An Evening of Food, Folklore, and Fairies" It sounded amazing, but it was booked up well in advance. Another tip is to try and order taxis ahead of time when getting off the ship: the taxi line can be long and slow to move. Jail Tour is dark and depressing but worth it to truly learn Irish history. Trinity Library is a quick tour, but gorgeous. Gin Palace is a fun place to stop for a drink and a bite if you like Gin, and their food is surprisingly good. Read Less
