County Dublin Transportation

  • To and From Dublin Airport

    Dublin Transportation

    We decided to use the Airlink bus back to the aiport on our trip because it was economical and quite easy to use. The stop was conveniently located on O'Connell Street in front and it also stops in Busaras (main bus terminal). The Airlink (Bus 747 and 748) runs service from the airport to the city center (and vice-versa) with service every 10...

    DART (Dublin Area Rapid Transport) is the train line running along Dublins coastline, from Malahide and Howth southwards as far as Greystones, Co Wicklow. The Dart service connects with Mainline services to other cities in Ireland and even to Belfast in Northern Ireland. From Dublins Tara Street station I caught the train to Sutton (as I wanted to...

  • DART (Dublin Area Rapid Transit)

    Dublin Transportation

    How many times have I visited Dublin now? Five for sure. Yesterday (31-5-14) was the first time I've used the train. I took the DART (Dublin Area Rapid Transit) train from where I was (Ballsbridge on the south side) out to Killiney - down the coast a bit. I went back to the city the same way. It was all very easy and pleasant. €3.05 each way. I...

    Howth Transportation

    This picture is actually in Dublin at the Bus Station just behind the Custom House North of the River Liffey. Bus Eireann is actually a long distance bus service, so you wouldn't take it to get to Howth or Malahide. Instead, you'd get on the Dublin Bus. You're looking for route 31 from Lower Abbey Street in Dublin. To Malahide, look for the 42 bus...

  • Dublin Bus

    Dublin Transportation

    I normally do not use the bus service in any city, especially a walkable city like Dublin, but we were going to meet up with some friends for dinner and we were running a bit late after doing some shopping, so we hoped on the bus for the short 10 minute ride to our hotel. Dublin is a big bus city. Its main transportation is the bus and there are...

  • Ferry

    Dublin Transportation

    I recently travelled through Dublin Ferryport in both directions and it was a fairly unremarkable experience except for a few little things that I will highlight here to inform other travellers. To do thing in the order I did I shall start with arriving at the ferryport from UK mainland. For many years there has been an arrangement between the...

  • Dublin Airport

    Dublin Transportation

    Terminal 2 at Dublin was planned during the period of the Celtic Tiger, when Ireland's economy was the envy of Europe. However, Terminal 2 opened in 2010, in the middle of a severe recession, and there still seems to be a lot of underused capacity here. Which isn't such a bad thing for a passenger. It's also nice for US bound passengers that you...

    Dublin Transportation

    In retrospect, joining the Eurozone currency area may not have been the best thing for the long term health of the Irish economy, but the EU has had many real positive impacts upon the Ireland, not the least of which has been the assistance provided to help the country create a modern mass transit infrastructure that puts the United States to...

  • Car Rental Information

    Dublin Transportation

    Things to know about renting a car in Ireland BEFORE you pick up your car: In Ireland, the car hire industry is based on a “bait and switch” model. Sales people are encouraged to add additional charges to your rental bill (sometimes with, but most times, without your knowledge). You are no longer a customer paying a fair price for a product, but...

  • Taxi's

    Dublin Transportation

    Just a warning about the taxis in Dublin - although for the most part we were treated to fair fares in the city, one young gent took us on a zigzag tour of Dublin from our hotel to our destination. Then he said he couldn't accept credit cards and waited until I walked to grab cash from an ATM which of course racked up more money on the meter. So...

  • Aer Lingus

    Dublin Transportation

    On every front Aerlingus is lacking. To start my flight, they wouldn't outright provide me with seats together with my 5 and 7 year old children on an international flight. A flight attendant finally worked it out, but that's a bit late. Then they lost my luggage for two days and were not forth coming with information and very difficult to contact....

  • Driving

    Dublin Transportation

    There are some basic principles that you need to follow in Ireland to ensure a safe and happy trip, the first and most important principle, is that you drive on the wrong side of the road (ignore this principle if you are already driving on the wrong side of the road). Everything is backwards from the way you are used to driving, roundabouts,...

  • Cycling

    Dublin Transportation

    I was very pleased to see a Bike Sharing Service in Dublin. It's necessary to purchase a 3-day card or a Long-Term Hire card to use the facilities, but it is well worth the cost. A 3-day card is currently about €2 and a Long-Term card is €10. There are 44 rental locations around the city center. The first half an hour of rental is always free and a...

Fare is usually €4 for within the greater Dublin area, rising to €6 for commuter towns like Maynooth and Ashbourne. You either buy the ticket from...

    In 2004 I flew with BMI from London (Heathrow) to Dublin. It was not the cheapest airline to fly from London to Dublin, but it was a very nice airline to fly on. The trip over to Dublin is a very quick one. It felt like we took off, we were in the air for about 30 minutes and then we were coming in to land at Dublin. The service on the flight was...
