Dublin Has Been Named As One Of The Best Value Destinations For Culture In The Eurozone

Sarah Finnan

In a list released by Lonely Planet today, Dublin has ranked amongst the top 18 cheapest cities for cultural breaks this October.

Now I know what you’re thinking; Dublin…cheap? Well, while certain things (*read coffee) are certainly not cheap, the city’s cultural attractions are amongst some of the only free ones in Europe.

The Cost of Culture report by the Post Office Travel Money compares the price of ballet, opera and concert tickets in 18 cities, along with the cost of entry to each city’s top museum, art gallery and heritage attraction.

Aiming to find the destination with the best bang for your buck, Dublin came in sixth on the list. Preceded only by Moscow, Stockholm, Warsaw, Prague and Budapest, which topped the list for the second year in a row.

According to the lovely folk at Lonely Planet, Dublin is “a small capital with a huge reputation”. The National Museum of Ireland impressed for its cultural offerings as did other attractions such as the Long Room in Trinity College Library.

Pricing Dublin’s cultural activities at €195 or £173, you could do a lot worse than our fair city.
