Attraction Tickets in Advance?

Hello all,

I'll be traveling to Ireland in August and was wondering if it would be advisable to purchase some of the tickets in advance for high tourist destinations like the Cliffs of Moher, Glendalough, etc?

If so, is it necessary to know the exact day you're going or can you purchase a ticket and go when able?

Thanks!

No problem then, just turn up whenever, theses aren't really places that "sell out".

Thanks =)

I also heard though that you can pre purchase some of these at a better price? Or it's less expensive...anyone know if this is true?

If they are offering an advance purchase discount it's probably on their website. Admission to Glendalough is only something like €2- €3 so I don't know how much of a savings it would really be.

Or or might have heard of the Heritage Pass. Cliffs of Moher aren't covered under that, I don't think. You'll need to scope out how many places you might visit otherwise to see if it saves you any money.
