The passport contains a section for each of the zones along the route and visitors to Discovery Points are invited to call in to the local post office to have their passport stamped. The passport costs €10 and can be purchased at over 130 post offices along the route or at the GPO in Dublin. Foynes post mistress Maeve McNamara helped launch the new passports with Tourism Minister Patrick O’Donovan.
