While our tours and other fun activities aren’t free there’s still some ways to enjoy the Irish capital without spending a single euro. From enjoying some outdoor sights to visiting some great museums we picked our top 5 free things to do in Dublin if you want to save a bit of your cash.
- The National Museum of Ireland: located in the heart of the city centre on Kildare Street, the National Museum of Ireland is one of the best museums in Dublin. Great to visit if you’re interested in archaeology or want to learn about prehistorical Ireland.
- The Phoenix Park: one of the largest urban parks in Europe and a lovely to chill during a busy city stay. Make sure to look for the deers!
- Chester Beatty Library: you’ll find this interesting museum behind Dublin Castle. It showcases the collections of Sir Alfred Chester Beatty: two floors of manuscripts, miniature paintings, prints, drawings and more from all over the world.
- The Science Gallery: another free indoor attraction worth visiting, right next to Trinity College. The Science Gallery has an ever-changing programme of exhibitions with very often interactive experiences for the visitors on a variety of themes.
- The Poolbeg Lighthouse: walking to the Poolbeg lighthouse is a lovely stroll if you want to get out of the city a bit. Go to Sandymount Strand and walk to the Poolbeg Lighthouse through Irish Town Nature Park. It is a long walk but once you’ve reached the lighthouse you are rewarded with one of the best seaviews in Dublin.
