Wheelchair accessible places to visit in Dublin

Guinness Store House

We are going to look at some of the best wheelchair accessible places to visit in Ireland.

We are starting with Dublin, and the great attractions that are available to wheelchair users.

The Guinness Store House

A visit to the magical home of Guinness is a must on anyone’s trip to Dublin. Guinness Storehouse is located in the heart of the Guinness Brewery at St. James’s Gate.

Housed in an old fermentation plant, the 7-story visitor experience tells the history of the world-famous Guinness Stout. Your adventure begins the moment you walk through the door and into the building’s giant, the pint-shaped heart of glass. As you make your way through the Guinness Storehouse, you’ll discover what goes into making the Black Stuff – the ingredients, the process, and the passion. Learn about the different award-winning advertising campaigns and slogans used to market Guinness.

Having travelled through more than 250 years of history, end your tour at the Gravity Bar where you’ll receive a pint of Guinness. Relax and enjoy the spectacular 360-degree views over Dublin.

River Liffey Sightseeing Cruise

Climb aboard an all-weather 48-passenger river boat for a 45-minute cruise along the River Liffey in Dublin and see the city from the water.

Get insight into the history of Dublin City and the River Liffey in particular, from the arrival of the Vikings more than 1,000 years ago, through the swift development of Dublin during the 18th and 19th centuries, to the subsequent decline and more recent redevelopment of Dublin Docklands.

Hear about the iconic Ha’penny Bridge and Gandon’s masterpiece Custom House. Follow the story of Dublin’s Royal and Grand Canals and see where Oliver Cromwell landed in 1649. Discover how Captain William Bligh surveyed Dublin Bay in 1800, and how much of present-day Dublin now sits on reclaimed land, including Trinity College and the Spire in O’Connell Street.

Roe and Co Distillery Cocktail Workshop Experience

Immerse yourself in the world of whiskey-making on a guided tour of the Roe and Co Distillery. Enjoy a world-class whiskey experience in this fully operational distillery, located in the buzzing Liberties district of Dublin 8.

Decades after the original Roe and Co Distillery closed its gates, one of Irish whiskey’s most influential names is inspiring a whiskey for a new generation. Don’t miss the chance to visit one of Lonely Planet’s top 10 best new openings in the world for 2019.

Step inside the iconic former Guinness Power Station for an immersive journey into flavor. Choose from two options: discover the secrets of their unique blend in Room 106 and create your own blend by building the perfect Whiskey Old Fashioned as part of the Blending experience.

Alternatively, you could explore the 5 pillars of flavour to identify your ideal taste profile as part of the Flavors experience.

After your chosen workshop, relax with a signature serve in the show stopping Power House Bar.

Howth Cliffs Coastal Cruise

Discover the beauty of the cliffs of Howth on a coastline boat tour. Take in the views of local landmarks such as Baily Lighthouse and the rugged coastal scenery.

Meet on the pier in Howth, a charming fishing town located just north of the city of Dublin. Hop onboard the ferry and cruise along the cliffs, taking in breathtaking views of Dublin Bay, the Baily Lighthouse, Balscadden Bay, and Ireland’s Eye.

Listen to live commentary onboard from your local captain, who has extensive knowledge of the area. Learn a bit about bird life, rock formations, and the history of Howth. Try to spot a variety of local bird species, and the native seal colony.

Sit back, relax, and enjoy a cruise with exclusive up-close views of one of Ireland’s most beautiful towns.

Saint Patrick’s Cathedral

Built in honour of Ireland’s patron saint, Saint Patrick’s Cathedral stands adjacent to the famous well where tradition has it, Saint Patrick baptized converts on his visit to Dublin.

Built in 1220, the Cathedral is today the National Cathedral of the Church of Ireland, hosting sung services twice daily Sunday through Friday, and also serves as a popular visitor attraction. On view are a selection of artifacts relating to Jonathan Swift, the dean of the cathedral from 1713 to 1745 and author of Gulliver’s Travels.

The cathedral also features a new Discovery Space with iPads playing samples of their choir and touch screen technology illuminating the cathedral’s long history. Perhaps more than any other building in Ireland, Saint Patrick’s Cathedral embodies the history and heritage of all Irish people of all backgrounds from the earliest times to the present day.
