Dublin is becoming more accessible all the time; for wheelchair users, visitors with guide dogs and people who may have mobility issues. Most tourist attractions have good wheelchair access and facilities. From taxis to buses and trains, Dublin is always working on improving accessibility to ensure that all visitors can enjoy the city fully.

Dublin Bus operates many low floor buses which have priority areas for wheelchair users, and Irish Rail will also do everything they can to make sure your journeys on their DART, local and national train networks are hassle free.

Whether it’s your first or one of many visits to Dublin you’ll receive a wealth of information and advice from our tourist office teams. From cultural hotspots to festivals and events, our multilingual staff will make sure you are in the know! Pick up a free map and Dublin Pocket Guide and allow the staff at the Discover Ireland and Visit Dublin Centres help you make the most of your city break!

Be an expert in your new city. My Dublin Map gives you a way to plan your trip online. How does it work? Just type a location (your accommodation for example), click on the anchor symbol and your map will always be centred there. As you browse Visit Dublin’s listings of pubs, eateries, attractions and more, pin them to My Dublin Map. Easy! We’ll even suggest some places we think you might like based on your choices. You can share your newfound knowledge of the city with your friends and they can interact with My Dublin Map too!

The pre- and main-meeting takes place in Ireland where the official currency is EUR.
The post tour takes place in North Ireland, which is part of the United Kingdom where the official currency is GBP.

Non-EU residents can claim the Value Added Tax (VAT) back on items bought in Ireland during their visit. Dublin has everything to offer the discerning shopper, from high end brands in our world famous department stores, to unique crafts in Irish design centres and one-off collections in quirky boutiques. It’s easy to claim back the VAT (up to 23% of purchase price) on the things you buy in the city.

Did you know that the hourly rainfall amounts in Ireland are less than in the tropics and that in May and June there’s an average of six to seven hours of sunshine a day?

The electrical supply in Ireland is 230v/50Hz. Plugs and sockets operate using three prongs and plug adapters are widely available. Check that your appliance supports dual voltage and frequency.

Dublin is a safe city, but just like in any other country, it’s always wise to keep alert so that you can enjoy your time here. You’ll find Dublin to be a warm and welcoming city with helpful locals, but when out and about, keep an eye on your belongings and follow all the normal rules that you would at home. It’s always a good idea to make sure you have your travel insurance organised before you make your trip to Dublin.

In the unlikely event that your belongings are lost or stolen, or if you experience a crime, it’s good to know that that you can contact the Tourist Assistance Service anytime, day or night.
