Best Day Trips From Dublin

These is often so much to do and so much to see that you often feel like handing the itinerary over to someone else, sitting back and enjoying the ride. Here are some of the 5 best day trips from Dublin, in no particular order.

Blarney Castle & Cork by Irish Day Tours

With an early start, you are picked up at the Molly Malone status on Suffolk street and the adventure begins!

The bus driver, a joyful Irishman, had so many stories to tell and with a great sense of humour, laughter filled the bus throughout the day.

For only 55 Euro, this trip includes the Rock of Cashel, a quick stop for lunch in Cork and the Blarney Castle. This trip is definitely worth the money spent and I would definitely recommend it. Be sure to check out my experience of this day trip here.

This is definitely on of the best day trips from Dublin, and a personal favorite.

Kilkenny & Wicklow Tour by Irish Day Tours

For only 33 Euro, this day trip includes a stop in Glendalough then a photo stop at the Wicklow Gap and finally onto Kilkenny.

This trip allows you to see another part of Ireland without having to spend the night.

Cliffs of Moher by Paddywagon Tours

The Cliffs of Moher are one of Ireland’s main attractions. Situated on the western side of Ireland, the Cliffs of Moher are definitely worth a visit.

I would recommend doing this type of trip from Galway, but if you are set on being back in Dublin, this trip is for you.

For only 40 Euro you will see the Wild Atlantic Coast, the Burren and the Cliffs of Moher, and more.

The day is jam packed with many places and a long, but beautiful road. Be sure to check out my first and second experiences of the Cliffs of Moher day trip from Galway.

Giant’s Causeway by Paddywagon Tours

Situated in Northern Ireland, the Giant’s Causeway is a wonder of nature. This day trip has so much to offer from the icon Dark Hedges used in Game of Thrones, the Giant’s Causeway and a stop in Belfast. With so much going, only 60 Euro isn’t a bad price for seeing so much..

Due to visa restrictions in Northern Ireland, I was not able to do this day trip all the reviews on this one seem promising.

Tayto Park

Though not a day trip offered by a travel company, I have no doubt that you will enjoy Tayto Park. The easiest way to get there is to catch the bus headed for Ashbourne which then stops at Tayto Park. A ticket varies depending on peak season (35 Euro) and off peak season (30 Euro).

Tayto Park is by far not the largest theme parks but has lots to offer.
