Travel and transport
Dublin Airport is one of Europe’s best-connected airports, with more than 44 airlines flying to over 180 destinations. It offers services to 29 airports in the UK and to an ever-expanding European network covering over 100 airports.
The airport is located 12km north of the city centre and there is an excellent network of services to and from the city centre, including the Aircoach and Airlink. There is no train connection from the airport. Taxis are plentiful and available at the airport. The city also has a dedicated tourist information website, Visit Dublin, which provides useful information.
Dublin city centre is remarkably compact and very easy to navigate. The coastal train, the DART, runs along the city’s coastline and there is also an extensive public bus network throughout the city centre. The LUAS tram system also connects the city centre to more suburban areas, while the Dublin Bikes scheme is hugely popular for travelling short distances within the city centre and taking in the sights.
