Dublin On The Cheap: Act Like A Dubliner
Friday, February 27, 2009
Want to save money while traveling: avoid the tourists. It’s axiomatic, but its surprising how often travelers forget this simple little truth. And though Ireland’s been hit with some hard times recently — after years of staggering growth — Dublin still manages to be an all-to-easy destination to blow your travel budget, unless you know what you’re doing.
This article has a few tips for making the most with the least in Ireland’s capital, like taking the bus over a taxi (yeah — no-brainer), hanging out in pubs around lunch for the most authentic and cheapest food (ok, now we’re talking), and pick up a Dublin Pass to gain free entry to over 27 attractions like the Irish Museum of Modern Art, Dublin Castle, James Joyce Museum, and the Old Jameson Distillery where you can, I’m not making this up, “earn a much coveted personalized Whiskey Taster Certificate.” A must for every well-rounded resume.
