When visiting larger cities, it is a good idea to look out for transport and attraction packages. While in Dublin, it may be more economical for you to purchase a Dublin Pass.
The Dublin Pass offers great discounts, special offers and free entry to 30 of the best attractions Dublin has to offer. You also get free airport transfer to Dublin via Air coach and a comprehensive guidebook to Dublin.
Another advantage in having a Dublin Pass is it allows quicker access to attractions. This greatly reduces the time you need to spend in a queue. This can be a real advantage, especially during the summer season as many of the attractions are very popular and you can spend a valuable part of your day just queuing. Those holding a Dublin Pass can often enter through a designated entrance, where the queue is generally much smaller.
Some of the main attractions include Chester Beatty Library, Christ Church Cathedral, Croke Park Experience, Dublin Castle, Dublin Zoo, Guinness Storehouse, The Casino Merino and The Old Jameson Distillery. As well as this, the pass also offers great discounts and special offers to shops, restaurants, theatres, tours and entertainment, some offering discounts of up to 25% off the initial price, with 50% off the RIASC – Grand Canal Experience fares.
When purchasing your Dublin Pass, you have several choices. You can purchase one, two, three or six day passes. These can be bought directly online or in any Tourist Information Center. Look out for extra discounts when purchasing your passes and you may receive even more savings.
Very little restrictions apply when using the pass but you can only visit the same attraction once in a 24-hour period.
Another great saving can be made if you incorporate a Dublin Bus Rambler Ticket with the Dublin Pass. This gives you unlimited travel for one, three or five consecutive days on all Dublin Bus services. Note that it does not include Nitelink, ferry services or tours. The prices for the Dublin Pass and the Rambler Tickets are listed below.
