Buy the Heritage Card, Save Money
The Heritage Card is a pass that allows you free entry to almost all historic sites owned or managed by the Irish government. Given that these include some of the country's most popular attractions, this can be a big saving. The card costs €21 for adults, €16 for seniors, €8 for children, and €55 for families. You can buy them at any of the site ticket offices, or at www.heritageireland.ie.
