Like many tourist capitals around the world, Dublin now features a special pass to help travelers save on admission prices. In conjunction with Fáilte Ireland (Suffolk Street office and at many other Irish tourist offices throughout Ireland), the Dublin Pass is issued for one, two, three, or five days, and allows free—or, rather, reduced (the cards do cost something)—admission to 30 sights, including the Guinness Brewery, the Dublin Zoo, the Dublin Writers Museum, and Christ Church Cathedral. It also includes an airport transfer. Prices are €62 for one day, €83 for two days, €92 for three days, and €128 for five days; children's prices are much lower (only €33 for one day). You can buy your card online and have it waiting for you at one of Dublin's tourist information offices when you arrive. Another plus: you can jump to the head of any line at participating museums and sights. Get your passes online at www.dublinpass.com.
