From Saturday morning Dublin will have a new spectacular attraction,” stated Harry Crosbie famous local Dublin entrepreneur. “So, if you are down here at the Point Village Market, staying at the Gibson Hotel or going to a concert at The O2 there will be an extra treat for everyone to enjoy.

It is located beside The O2 venue and is part of the Point Village development. Tickets are not cheap and will cost individuals €9 per person for the 13 minute trip. However, group and family discounts are available. The capsules are wheelchair accessible and The Wheel of Dublin will operate every day from 10am to 10pm.
