This was great and I would recommend it to all my friends.
This was the best way to see Dublin!
It would have been cheaper for us to just go to what we wanted each day then pay for the pass. Really too expensive for what you were able to see each day.
This will save you money if you plan to do lots of things listed in the book. I couldn't get to everything, but this made it simple to get into things like the Guinness Brewery tour. I went ahead of everyone in line and walked right through.
2 days is enough for visiting places we felt. It gave you a feel of Dublin. I do think price was a bit steep. The guides where good, but the Dublin Prison was crammed with people - too many in the group I felt in to small spaces.
Not all of the tours that were supposed to be offered were available when they were supposed to be.
It helped show what there was to do, and skipping lines was great.
Too many places included to possibly see, but that's not your fault, I ran out of time, great value.

Doing what: The Dublin Pass
I was disappointed in the options available with this pass. The cost for the two day pass did not save us any money. There are several items listed as part of the pass, but they are actually free in Dublin and you do not need a pass, such as the museums. The Dracula event was a rip off, as it was only half working, and a really bad attempt at a haunted house. The pass cost more than we would have spent without it. The only thing it saved us was time when we were able to cut the line at the Guinness Storehouse. Everywhere else, there were either no lines or it was a tour. I would not get this again and just pay as I go, it ends up being cheaper in the long run. There is only so much you can do in two days.
If you are staying in the City Centre it is a decent deal if only to give you a list of ideas to go to. The pro is that you might have skipped some of the historic places if you did not already pay for the pass. The con is that the art gallery and museums are free and you can't do everything in two days.

Doing what: The Dublin Pass
Difficult to recoup the value of the pass. Tara Museum, Frye Railroad Museum and Natural History Museum were closed. Didn't know that until we were at each place.
The pass wasn't worth the money as places were closed and most were only a few Euros to get in or free.
You don't tell on the Internet where to get the Dublin Pass. It took us some time to find the right Information Centre.
Note from Viator: We're sorry that you weren't able to find where to pick up The Dublin Pass. To collect your pass and free guide, you must exchange your Viator voucher at either the Dublin Tourism Center (Suffolk Street, Dublin 2) or at the Dublin Tourism Information Center (Arrivals Hall, Dublin Airport).
