My husband and I are leaving in a few days and headed to Ireland and London. Our first day will be in Dublin and we are arriving to the airport at about 8am. We have made arrangements to check in (at least our luggage) at our hotel upon arrival and then plan to tour around a little in the city to keep ahead of the jet-lag. (I am not really able to sleep on planes, so this will be especially important for me) We will only be in Dublin that one day, so we would not be able to take advantage of the second free day.
My question is, will the hop on/hop off bus pass be worth it for us? It seems expensive given that we really will not have the energy to see a great deal. We plan to go a fair bit of walking, and we will go to the Guinness Storehouse late in the afternoon (I want to see the sunset at the Gravity Bar). I am sort of leaning to just the city bus/tram system given that it will be significantly cheaper. Perhaps I am thinking of this a little narrowly? I'm hoping that some of you may have suggestions.
