Getting to Dublin from Dublin Airport

You can find information below on different bus services available to reach the city centre from the airport.

Aircoach. This bus service connects Dublin airport with the city centre 24 hours a day operating up to every 15 minutes.  O’Connell St is the city centre. A single ticket from the airport to the city costs €6. For more information, you may visit their webpage at http://www.aircoach.ie/

Airlink and Other Buses

All the airport tickets can be bought in the following locations:

  • Terminal 1: bus & travel information desk, arrivals hall, vending machines located at the Airlink bus stop and the Spar shop.
  • Terminal 2: the Spar shop.

The Airlink Express service (747 and 757) connects Dublin Airport with many of Dublin city’s most popular locations.  Please see below link.

There are also other bus routes that go to and from the airport.  These buses will set down at all stops between Dublin Airport and the departure / destination point.  You must pay the exact fare in coins if you do not have a prepaid ticket.

http://www.dublinbus.ie/Your-Journey1/Timetables/Airport-Services/

By Taxi

The fee depends on the length of the journey but generally speaking a taxi from the airport to O’Connell St would cost between €25 and €30.

 

Public Transport from the City Centre

Luas

It is the light rail transit system in Dublin and has two tram lines:

  • The red line is 20 kms in length and has 32 stops. It runs from Tallaght to The Point.
  • The green line is 16.5km in length and has 22 stops. It runs from Brides Glen to St Sephen’s Green through Sandyford.

https://www.luas.ie/

https://www.luas.ie/tickets-and-fares/

Dublin Bus Services

The fare depends on the distance travelled. You have to pay the exact fare as change is not given.  If you are going to depend on the bus regularly, your best option is the multi-journey tickets or the Leap Card which is a card that can be used to pay-as-you-go on Dublin Bus, Luas, Dart and commuter rail services around Dublin.  You pay less with a Leap Card.

https://www.dublinbus.ie/

There is an app that you can use with iphone and android to obtain real time information on the bus arrival at your stop, fare and route planner.  It is free to download.  For more information, please visit:  http://www.dublinbus.ie/DublinBus-Mobile/

Dart (Dublin Area Rapid Transit)

It is the electric rail system and another way to get around Dublin.  It runs along the coast of the Irish Sea from Malahide or Howth in north county Dublin southwards as far as Greystones in County Wicklow.  The service operates every 15 minutes all day.

Mobile Phone Providers

The main mobile providers in Ireland are Vodafone, Meteor, 3 and Tesco.  The 3 network also provides a network specialised in 3G technology.

There is always good quality communication in all cities.  If you want to get connected to one of the Irish mobile networks, you can buy a SIM card or a SIM card and phone together. You will also have to choose between Pay as You Go (prepaid system) or contract (one year contract at least).

You can buy a mobile phone from all operator stores or visit their online shops. The Carphone Warehouse provides mobiles from all networks and comparison charts for everything you could possibly want. In general, their magazine groups all necessary information and it is a good idea to read them. They are especially useful if you wish to purchase an actual phone with your new line.

You can also use www.callcosts.ie to compare the price of mobile phones and roaming charges.

Food

There is a wide variety of foods from different countries in Dublin.  The prices of food can vary greatly depending on where you purchase your items.  You may find Dublin a bit expensive when you arrive for the first time but you can reduce the cost of food if you buy at some places.

The cheapest option for you to buy food will be places like Aldi or Lidl.  Dunnes Stores or Tesco will be considered the next cheapest option and Supervalue the most expensive option.  If you purchase your food in small convenience stores like Spar or Centra you will find yourself paying extra money.

You can buy fruit and vegetables at good value for money in fresh food markets e.g. in Moore St (close to Cathal Brugha St and Bolton St) or in Camden St (close to Kevin St and Aungier St). Information on farmer markets can be seen in www.irishfarmermarkets.ie .

The Asian markets can be found in Drury St and Parnell St.  Halal food can be purchased in Clanbrassil St and Wexford St which are located near DIT Kevin St and Aungier St.

Most of the shops in the city centre are open from 9am to 6pm Monday to Saturday and they close at 9pm on Thursday and Fridays.  A lot of shops are also open on Sundays from 12noon to 6pm.  Some large supermarkets like Tesco and Dunes may be open 24 hours a week.
