AirLink Buses To and From Dublin Airport Review

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.

This Rucksack is MUCH too Big! - Dublin
This Rucksack is MUCH too Big! Train Stations Review

We took a morning train to Portloaise from Heuston with a lot of other Festival goers. A 5 day return ticket was around 20E. It took almost an hour to get there and we were so glad that there were plenty of coaches waiting at the station to take us the rest of the way to the festival! (at a cost of 5E)

AerDART DART (Dublin Area Rapid Transit) Review

The AerDART bus is the connecting link from Howth Junction to Dublin airport. From Central Dublin ie: Grand Canal Dock, Pearse Street Station, or Tara Street or Connelly, it costs 7euro one way.

This photo shows the interior of the AerDART bus... there were only 3 of us traveling all the way to the airport. The driver flew along the motorway at a fair ol' speed, and woe betide any cars in the bus lane!!

Early Morning Taxi Taxi's Review

We were glad to jump into a taxi after we arrived in Dublin in a shower of freezing rain. The driver was friendly, helpful and chatty and had a gorgeous Dubliner accent. It really cheered up two cold and weary travellers. He just talked on and on about this and that, and had an opinion about everything ( as taxi driver's do all over the world!) from the rise in house prices to the amount of luggage US visitors bring with them!

In Dublin Central taxis can be found at the main taxi ranks on O'Connell Street, Dame Street and St Stephen's Green.

Our cabbie worked for Trinity Taxi's, we paid 20Euros from the airport to our hotel on Grand Canal Street.

LUAS Tram - Dublin

LUAS Tram

Trams LUAS.. Review

TheLUAS Tram system is new to Dublin - I didn't try it. The taxi driver didn't like it - saying it had caused a lot of disruption to the city (and I guess taken some of his customers) . I expect he'll get used to it.

Tickets can be bought from ticket vending machines at LUAS stops or from selected retailers - you MUST buy a ticket before boarding.

The system is divided into two zones, Red and Green. The Red Line connects Tallaght to Connolly Station and the Green Line connects Sandyford for St Stephen's Green.

Prices for 7 day tickets within specified zones start at 10Euros for adults and 6Euros for children and 9Euros for students.

DARTing about on the trains DART (Dublin Area Rapid Transit) Review

The train system here is great. It's reliable, inexpensive and comfortable. We went north to Howth, and south to Killiney. On the last day we went east to the airport.

To get to the airport by train you must change at Howth Junction and get the connecting bus. It only took about half an hour in traffic but we still arrived in plenty of time to check in prior to our departure.

A return to Killiney from Pearse Street Station cost just 3.85Euros return each.

Pearse to Howth return was 3.40Euros.

Go Directly to Gaol - Dublin
Go Directly to Gaol Bus Eireann Review

We took a number 79 to Kilmainham Gaol. The buses are regular and there are plenty of them. You MUST however have the correct change - (it's 1.30euro to the Gaol). We asked the driver to give us a shout when we got there but he forgot - so... when you see Kilmainham Court RING THE BELL TO STOP THE BUS!!!

We saw a couple of tourists turned off the bus for not having the correct change.

On the way back you can take ANY bus back into the city.
