All about the Dublin Pass

A precious sesame, which will save you money!

Dublin Castle, Guinness Storehouse, EPIC Museum, Jameson Distillery, St Patrick’s Cathedral, Dublinia Museum… There are a lot of tourist attractions to discover in Dublin… but very quickly, the bill gets heavier.

15€ here, 20€ there… We quickly find ourselves dry, and the attractions have not all been done. Frustration arrives… and we feel obliged to make concessions.

There is nothing worse when you travel!

That’s why the city of Dublin has introduced the Dublin Pass. It is a card, ranging from 70 to 110€ per person, which allows you to discover the most popular attractions of Dublin without having to pay your entrance ticket for each establishment! In short, it’s a card that gives you access to most of the city’s paid attractions (plus 35)!

Here is an overview:

  • Guinness Storehouse,
  • Big Bus Dublin op-on Hop-off Tour,
  • St Patrick’s Cathedral,
  • Epic Museum,
  • Christ Church Cathedral,
  • Dublin Castle,
  • Dublinia Museum,

The question then arises: is the Dublin Pass really profitable? Our answer is yes, but we prefer to let you consult its prices:

Duration of validity Tarif adulte Child rate (from 5 to 15 years old)
1 day 70 € 40 €
2 days 86 € 48 €
3 days 99 € 54 €
4 days 106 € 63 €
5 days 110 € 67 €

The concept is simple: you pay for the card according to the number of days you use it. The more days you take, the more the rate is decreasing.

However, the principle of this card implies that you do more than 4 or 5 attractions for it to be profitable. The entries going from 10 to 30€ according to the establishment, the cost of the Dublin Pass is then very quickly amortized!

Where to buy the Dublin Pass?

An easy to get card!

There are many ways to get this preferential card. Among others, you can buy it:

  • on the official website: (They offer a perfect smartphone application where your pass will be stored on it)
  • at Dublin airport
  • in the city center (in the tourist office)

Anyway, we advise you to buy it before landing in Dublin. It will allow you to take advantage of services such as free transportation from the airport to the city center, discounts in some of the partner restaurants and bars…

In short: the sooner you buy the Dublin Pass, the sooner you can enjoy it!
