Sooooo there’s a Gin and Tonic Bus Tour of Dublin where you spin about the city on a 1960’s vintage bus and nurse G&Ts…
Yea, it’s a thing.
And it’s pretty damn reasonable, too!
A Gin and Tonic Bus Tour of Dublin
If you ever wanted to climb aboard an old-school 1960s Routemaster bus and spin around Dublin while taking in some of the city’s best sights with a G&T in hand, you’re in luck.
A G&T tour of Dublin launched over the summer, and it sounds pretty decent.
Here’s how the organisers describe the tour:
‘As you meander through picturesque Dublin, sip your G&T while chit-chatting with your fellow tour guests. Look out over the water as you drive through the city.
Gaze out over Dublin’s lush green spaces as you cruise by Merrion Square, Saint Stephen’s Green, and the largest city park in Europe, Phoenix Park. Pass by the 19th-century cast iron Ha’penny Bridge, and admire the stately beauty of Trinity College.’
