Find Your Way Around Dublin Castle

The ticket office in Dublin Castle is located in the State Apartments. Guided tours start here and take you first to the site of Viking Excavation, then to the Chapel Royal, and finally into the State Apartments. If you choose our self-guiding ticket option, you may proceed straight from the ticket office to visit the State Apartments.
