Deciding what to see in Dublin made easy!

What to see in Dublin
January 13, 2015

,

One of the easiest ways to decide what to see in Dublin is by investing in a city pass like the Dublin Pass.

The great thing about these type of city passes is that you pay a one-off price for the pass, but can then use it to visit loads of attractions, museums and more for free! For example, the Dublin Pass gives you free entry to more than 30 of the city’s top-rated attractions and can be used over 1, 2, 3 or 6 days.

Some of Dublin’s biggest must-see attractions are:

The Guinness Storehouse

Ireland’s number one visitor attraction!

A huge 7-storey experience that brings the rich heritage of GUINNESS to life, telling the story from its origins at St. James’s Gate in Dublin to its growth as a global brand, known all around the world. Plus you get a free pint of Guinness when you reach the top of the building!
