Travelling from Dublin Airport
Dublin airport (DUB) is easily accessible, with flight connections with almost all major European and inter-continental cities. From the airport terminals, Dublin city centre can be reached either by bus or by taxi.
Taxis are readily available outside both terminal buildings. A taxi will take about 20-30 minutes (depending on traffic). The usual fare for a journey to Dublin city centre is approx. 25 EUR. The trip can be shortened by asking the driver to take the Port Tunnel. At most times this will incur a 3 EUR toll charge. However, at peak times on weekdays (06:00-10:00 from airport to city; 1600-1900 from city to airport), the toll charge rises to 10 EUR.
TCD can be reached by the following bus services, with relevant drop-off locations indicated by red symbols in the map:
- Aircoach – €7 one way or €12 return. The Aircoach leaves from the airport every 15 min to Grafton St (just beside the TCD front gate),
- Airlink 747 – €6 one way or €10 return. This service runs every 15 min to Busáras (north of River Liffey) or College Green (at TCD front gate),
- Dublin Bus 16 – A cheaper alternative is to take the regular bus from the airport (bus no. 16) that will take about 45 minutes and will cost €3.30. The exact fare needs to be paid directly to the bus driver. Tickets are available for sale at the small markets in the arrival section of the airport (both Terminal 1 and Terminal 2).
Travelling by Train
The conference venue can be reached by the DART train services from Connolly Station to Pearse station via the DART.
