What tripadvisor are saying about Declan:
"Hop on Hop off Trip"
We had a really good experience on the hop on hop off Dublin bus, the drivers were fantastic very personable and good fun Steve Willie and Declan were three of the drivers.
"Excellent tour of Glendalough & Powerscourt Gardens"
There was some doubt as to whether we could do this trip due to snow in the hills but thankfully went ahead! Declan was a brilliant tour guide and driver, giving us hints, tips, history & humour! Glendalough was beautiful & serene with a well worth visit to the Cathedral ruins. As it was so wet & cold we went into the hotel for a warm up and drink! Lovely place with cheaper prices than the city! Powerscourt Gardens were worth a walk around even in the pouring rain! We went into the cafe/restaurant to dry out a bit and enjoy a coffee & amazing cakes!! You must have some cake! A thoroughly enjoyable day with a great host worth the price of the ticket!! Thank you Declan!
"Great Tour - Declan's awesome!"
We took this tour recently. The bus was the same the company uses in Dublin for the hop on/off tour but is fully covered on top. It was certainly comfortable enough for this relatively short trip. Our driver/tour guide was Declan. He was great! He talked the entire time we were traveling in the bus telling stories about the history of Ireland or of the places we were passing. I was impressed he could navigate the twisty roads and talk non-stop at the same time. The castle and the town of Howth were great places to stop. We got our best fish and chips of our Ireland trip at a take-out place in Howth! You are not far from Dublin but really feel you're in the countryside. The drive along the coast was breath-taking.
"Delightful Driver/ Tour guide!"
We took the Hop on Hop off Bus tour on the Red Line with a large group. Because we had limited time, we didn't hop off at any stops, so were able to stay with one driver most of the time. Our driver/tour guide, Declan was delightful! Because he was born and raised a Dublin lad, he knows the City very well and was able to tell us great stories about the places we saw. The city streets were full of road construction, but he drove around like a pro. Best of all, he sang to us in Elvis Presley style and told silly jokes that had us all laughing. We highly recommend Declan and the Red Line!
"An excellent way to see the main sights"
Went on this trip Tues morning. We pre booked before we left home & then found we could have got it slightly cheaper just by turning up on the day. However, that doesn't matter. Declan, our bus driver was very informative all throughout the journey, even treating us to a few Irish songs along the way. We saw all the main sights, & this was a really good way to get our bearings. To add to the value Declan told us about the extra freebies that our ticket allowed us to have. Consequently we enjoyed a free Irish coffee in one of the bars & a 2 for 1 evening meal in one of the restaurants in Temple Bar. All in all excellent value for money & can thoroughly recommend
