With Ireland’s visitor numbers up by nine per cent in 2014 and further increases expected this year, the Dublin Pass, a sightseeing card which helps visitors save time and money, has been relaunched to make the capital city more convenient and accessible for tourists. 

The Dublin Pass has been revamped with a new smartphone- and tablet-ready website, making it easier to purchase, and now offers entry to 33 of the city’s top attractions, as well as discounts and exclusive offers at 20 more venues, a one-way Aircoach transfer into the centre of Dublin from the city’s airport, a free guidebook and fast-track entry at some of the busiest attractions.

Priced from €39 per adult and €21 per child (aged 5-15) for a one-day pass, the Dublin Pass is a convenient single purchase showcasing the best of the city while minimising the time spent waiting for tickets at each attraction.
