Dublin Cruise Port
Ireland’s capital city is an important stop for cruise liners on round-the-world, transatlantic, and European routes. Not only do cruisers disembarking at Dublin Cruise Port have easy access to all of the city’s top sights—from Dublin Castle to Trinity College and the Book of Kells—but they can also head to day-trip destinations outside the capital.
Cruisers disembarking in Dublin can choose between a range of shore excursions and tours. Popular destinations include the Guinness Storehouse, the Jameson Distillery, St. Patrick’s Cathedral, and shopping districts including Grafton Street and Temple Bar. Visitors can also join half-day and full-day tours that venture to scenic locales outside the city, such as Glendalough in County Wicklow, the Cliffs of Moher in County Clare, or even Belfast and the Giant’s Causeway in Northern Ireland.
