No, air travel is not included in the Dublin Marathon package. All guests are required to make all travel arrangements to travel to and enter Ireland. Upon arrival, guests are encouraged to use public transportation to get around the city. However, with our ideal location to the start and finish areas as well as close proximity to many of Dublin’s big attractions, guests can choose to walk as well.

How much does it cost to get a bib from Destination Marathons?

Guaranteed bib entry is an additional $160. Our bibs must be sold in conjunction with our travel package to US citizens only (per tour operator rules). One bib per runner, maximum 2 bibs per room (assuming double-occupancy).

Is this a special kind of bib, like a charity bib?

Your bib will remain pending until final payment of your package is received. At time of payment in full, the bib will be released to you.

Do I need to be vaccinated to participate in the race?

Since criteria can change at any time, we encourage you to monitor Covid requirements for Dublin.

Do spectators receive VIP treatment?

Spectators receive the same VIP perks as runners enjoy plus additional perks like a sign-making station and spectator plan.
