Dublin Bus is the main provider of bus services in the city, and covers pretty much everywhere you need to go. Be aware – the only card payments accepted are Leap Cards, so be prepared to carry change. You can buy Dublin bus tickets when you board the bus, but drivers will only accept the correct fare in cash.
The LUAS is a light rail/tram system that covers a large portion of the city via two main lines – the Red line and the Green line. You can buy tickets from payment stations at each stop, or by tapping a Leap Card – just don’t forget to ‘tap off’ when you disembark or you will be charged the full fare.
Taxis are readily available throughout the city. You can pay by card or cash in most, and you can use an app such as FreeNow to hail a taxi to your location. All taxis are metered, but extra charges for booking, extra passengers or bank holidays can apply. Click here to read more about these charges.
Leap Cards are an easy payment system for buses, trams and trains in Dublin. If you plan to regularly use public transport, it might be worth looking into getting a Visitor Leap Card. Available for 1, 3 or 7 days, they have a set cost that then allows unlimited use of these services. Click here to find out more.
On arrival day we will have volunteers in the airport to direct you, and a schedule for pick-ups throughout the day.
For later arrivals, public buses run throughout the day but the quickest and easiest option will be a taxi.
