Just because you’re broke doesn’t mean you can’t have fun, especially in the capital. There are plenty of places to go and things to see in Dublin for people on a small budget.
After much debate in the office, here is our list of things to do in Dublin for €20.00 or less…
1 National Wax Museum
The National Wax Museum Plus is an attraction based in the city centre, located seconds from O’Connell Bridge on Westmoreland St. (directions here). It contains wax figures from throughout history, a science and discovery section, a chamber of horrors for those daring enough, time vaults, music, entertainment and even a children’s section!
You purchase tickets online (here) student and teenage tickets are only €12.17, which is well within the €20.00 budget.
2 Science Gallery Dublin
Located in Trinity College Dublin (directions here) the Science Gallery Dublin boasts weird and wonderful exhibitions regularly, as well as having an amazing cafe and shop which is open daily from 12:00 to 18:00. They change their exhibitions throughout the year, so there’s always something new to see every few months. It’s a brilliant day out.
The best part about this wonderful science experience is that entry into the gallery is free! (Although we would recommend giving a donation as they do some pretty amazing work!) Take a look at their website for a list of events coming up and make sure to subscribe to their mailing list for all new announcements.
3 St. Stephen Green
