Public transport from Ellis Quay to Trinity College (Long Room Hub)

by Piggy73

We are hoping to stay in self catering accomodation in"John Street North" off "Ellis Quay".

I would really appreciate it if anyone could advise me if public transport operates to somewhere near "Trinity College". We have to be at the "Long Room Hub" by 9.00am.

Thank you very much for and information

Dublin rush hour traffic is pretty bad, particularly along the quays where you're staying. It should only be about a 20 minute walk and it's pretty likely that you'd walk quicker than any form of transport!! There may be a bus or two that you could take but, again, you'll probably walk quicker than waiting for the bus! If you really don't want to walk then the quickest option is probably a taxi - it shouldn't cost more than €10 (even that is a rip off!).

Re: Public transport from Ellis Quay to Trinity College (Long Room Hub)

by stevefrancyclancy

agree with waoife, walking or taxi may be best options depending time of day, otherwise innercity buses run along quay and several take that route
try www.dublinbus.ie stop would be wolfe tone quay (beside ellis quay) to college green trinity stop, you have choice of about 15 bus routes.
otherwise you could talk luas(tram) from museum stop to abbey street stop and walk from o connell street to trinity (3-4 mins)

Yes, I agree with the above too. Walking is definitely your best option and taxi second best if you must! Another possibility is to take the Luas (tram) from the Smithfield stop (it runs parallel to the river but a block behind your apartment)to Abbey Street then walk around the corner to O'Connell St and take bus no 10, 11/a, 13/a, 46a, to Nassau St where you can enter the side gate to Trinity. The Nassau St gate would leave you quite near the Long Room Hub. But in all honesty all that crushing (rush hour), changing, waiting, buying tickets etc. would be a lot of bother and would no doubt take longer than twenty minutes in total!

Travel Tips for Dublin

Off and On Bus

by Goner

The first thing you must do is take a tour on the one of the hop off - hop on buses. We took the City Tour, Dublin Sightseeing bus. It's a great way to get your bearings, learn about the city's monuments and decide what you would like to see. City tour has 23 stops at Dublin's historic and cultural highlights. The complete tour lasts 1 hour 30 minutes. Their pamphlet gives you a short history of the stops and are numbered on the map so you will know where the bus will be stopping next. The times are even listed so you know when the bus will be returning to the stop you are visiting. If you are going to be in Dublin for three days they sell 3-day passes at a discount.

If the wind is blowing in Dublin and you're from a warm climate like California, riding the bus is much more comfortable than fighting the wind.

Check with your hotel or a tourist office for the location of the bus stop nearest you or look for the green tour bus sign usually with the local bus stop signs. There is many historical sights to see and always a festive air about Dublin.

Newgrange is a must see. It...

by tomnjan

Newgrange is a must see. It is outside Dublin city but is the oldest site in Ireland. pre dates the pyramids by about 1000 years!! It has been restored to a certain extent, but does have a false look about the entrance. Dont even bother to attempt to go there at the spring solstace as it is booked out for quiote a few years.

Grafton Street's buskers

by sarahandgareth

If the weather is good, make sure to take a stroll down Grafton St, especially if school is out, because there are bound to be several very talented groups playing along the street. They vary from young people playing classical chamber music, to duos singing REM songs, or more offbeat material, to the old staples, like the middle-aged blues guitarist, who has inspired more than one youthful imitator. There are also street entertainers, dancers and the occasional didgeridoo-player and pan-pipe group to get your attention. Whoever is there, the quality of the music is always excellent, and the musicians well worth your euro or two.

Temple Bar Love it or hate it

by Buckz

Afternoon and early evening it is fine- food coffee, street entertainment, Temple Bar is excellent.

But-
By 9 or 10pm its getting drunk, and rough, and full. And Smelly. Really smelly. Now this is not something you often see about a place, (except maybe Hong Kong), but by late evening the bars in Temple Bar stink. Rowdy energetic drinkers who have been on the go for hours now need a shower, badly. Add to this the unfortunate combination of burgers and pints (Beef and Guinness) to add a worse aroma. And with the workplace smoking ban, there is nothing to cover it up. Crowded pubs of sweaty beef eaters.

Oh how lovely. We are so proud.

So no matter how impressed you were initially, when you leave you will hate it.
