Some of the best and cheapest ways to see all the major sights a city has to offer is through a city pass. We often look up a city pass everywhere we go! One of our favorites is the Dublin Pass. With a chance to see over 33 attractions as well as great discounts, this pass really provided us a chance to see it all.
Guinness is Good for You!
First stop was the Guinness Storehouse – typically an €18 entry fee. Seven floors all about the local brew ends at the top with a 360 degree view of Dublin and the surrounding area. Of course, here is where you pick up your complimentary pint too!
Take a Tour of the Old Jameson Distillery
Another inclusion is the Old Jameson Distillery Tour – typically a €15 entry fee. By stop 2 you’ve almost paid for your day pass! This guided tour takes you back to the early days of Irish whiskey making at it’s best. Near the end of the tour you can also volunteer to be a whiskey taste tester and see if you can taste the difference between some big name whiskey.
The National Wax Museum
I actually stepped into The National Wax Museum (a €12 entry fee) to get out of the rain and was pleased that I did. I am not typically a fan of wax museums, but The National Wax Museum does a great job.
Starting off with famous Irish historical figures to the super hero’s and horrors areas, they provide a pretty interactive display. Visit near halloween to get an extra special viewing of some creepy wax figures!
Dublin Pass offers Much More too
Your pass also includes some of the following and many more benefits. Be sure to check out the Dublin Pass website to learn more.
- Dublin Zoo
- Glasnevin Museum and Cemetery
- Christ Church Cathedral
- St. Patrick’s Cathedral
- Aviva Stadium Tour

Start your pass at the Airport
Your Dublin Pass includes a Free Airport Transfer into central Dublin too! When you buy your pass ahead of time and pick it up at the airport, you can take advantage of the free transfer into the Dublin center. Just remember, the first use of your card, including the airport transfer, starts the clock.
We combined our Dublin Pass with the Dublin Bus Pass – Freedom Ticket which is good for 3 days and includes the hop on- hop off bus, all local bus services, and airport transfers. The hop on – hop off bus drops you at many of the attractions included with the Dublin Pass so it is a super convenient way to get around. The Dublin Pass and Dublin Bus pass is a great combination that will save you time and money as you explore more of what Dublin has to offer.
