  • Avoid Air Coach

    My experiences with Air Coach have been very bad. They often drive passed their stops with empty buses and leave you stranded when you are on your way to the airport.

    The drivers are often very rude and will tell you to get off the bus because they are not able to give you change and they will not bring you to the airport.

    Consider the 747 bus, it goes into the city centre and it is cheaper. Or take the local bus number 16 from the airport into the city centre for less than half the price of Air Coach. With the number 16 and 747 you can use the Dublin Bus app to check when the net bus leaves. With Air Coach you just stand there hoping that a bus will come but with no idea when one will come. Or take a taxi for around €20.

    City Sightseeing Dublin and Aircoach

    City Sightseeing Dublin - the local hop on hop off open top bus operator - have a really great combo ticket which gives you a return airport coach transfer aboard the Aircoach plus a days sightseeing aboard the City Sightseeing hop on hop off open top bus. The ticket represents great value for money and ideal if you are only spending a few days in Dublin.

    Air Coach to/from the Airport

    by yooperprof Written Aug 2, 2013

    I found that the AirCoach was an excellent mode of transportation to and from Dublin Airport. For seven euros, I was transported in a modern comfortable wireless equipped coach to O'Connell Street, which was only a 8 minute walk from my hotel. I also like being able to purchase my ticket online - it was one less thing to worry about when I arrived in Dublin after a transatlantic flight.

    Probably the best way to get between Dublin and the airport is via aircoach. To and from Dublin Airport every 15 minutes, the ride will only cost you 6e (and you'll get a discount for buying roundtrip (or, as they call it in Ireland 'return'...i.e. if you want two tickets, ask for a return)).

    The bus makes 15 or so stops in An Lan (downtown Dublin) ranging from the Gresham Hotel on O'Connell Street all the way to Donnybrook Road.

    This mode of tansport is a little more comfortable than the city bus, costs about the same, and you don't have to worry about which one you get on, but you won't get to ride on a double decker. Make sure you have at least a few euros before arriving!! And don't take a taxi. It will cost too much and take forever.

    By plane: Dublin Airport. A lot of flights from a lot of destinations goes to Dublin Airport.
    By train: not possible from the European continent.
    By bus/car: from England, and the ferry to Dun Loghaire.
    The public transport in Dublin only exists from buses. No underground, no trams, just buses and taxicabs. Taxies are really expensive, and because of the overcrowd traffic in the city it isn't recommended to take the bus for short distances. If you can walk, just walk !

    From The AIRPORT!

    Take the 748 into Dublin. Fare is ~1.50 Irish pounds.
    This will take you into the heart of Dublin. After that you can grab a city bus to your accomodation or just walk.
    The busses are all lined up right outside the airport and the drivers are fairly helpful depending on who you get.

    Dublin is connected to many major cities in Europe and some larger ones in the East Coast of the USA. The national carrier is Aer Lingus.
    I took the Malev Hungarian Airlines flight from Budapest. It takes around 3 hours and there are 4 flights a week.

    Dublin's Airport is 10km north of the city and buses 40 and 41A are a good choice if you don't want to spend too much on transportation to/from the airport.

    Other alternatives: Bus, DART, taxi, bicycles (maybe not the one on the photo)

    Lame Bus Service - Aircoach

    by dfactor Updated Feb 7, 2011

    I bought aircoach's return ticket when I arrived in Dublin in Dec 2010, it's much regretted. On the morning I was suppose to take the bus to the airport, the bus didn't show up and I waited in the freezing cold for close to 30 min! In the end, I gave up and just took the taxi, I was so close to missing my flight. I wouldn't recommend aircoach after what I went through. I complained to the customer service and to this day, I didn't hear much from them. It branded itself as a luxury bus service, but it hardly is at all.

    The Airlink buses stop right outside the airport and cost just 5E to the city centre - buy the ticket at the machine by the bus stop and validate it on the bus. The 748 terminates at Heuston Station.

    From the Airport to the City center

    by lotharscheer Updated Jun 22, 2012

    There are several options, probably the cheapest by Aircoach to O'Connell Street or Grafton Street, € 2.20 when buying at the counter at the bus departure (on the web € 7!)
