Airport to City

Dublin Airport only has two options of commuting to and from the city. Bus or Taxi. There is no rail link option in the Airport.


This is the fastest and most expensive option to get into the city. The average price is roughly €20 - €25.

Note: You will not be reimbursed for taxi trips


Dublin Bus - 747 (Green double decker bus) The Airport to City bus stops outside both terminal buildings and will take you into O'Connell Street which is less than 5 minutes walk to Trinity College. It's regularly picks up passengers at an average wait time of 10-15 minutes during the day and takes about 20 minutes to get into the city. Cost is set at 6 Euros each way.

Dublin Bus Route 16 (Starts route outside of Terminal 1). This is an everyday bus route into the city. It departs from outside of terminal 1 (old terminal) every 15-20 minutes. Takes about 45 minutes to get into the heart of the city and stops right outside Trinity College. It's price should be less than €6 per trip. Approx €4.

Aircoach Aircoach is a comfortable solution, these coaches stop outside both terminals and you can pay with notes when boarding. Aircoaches stop at every major part of the city. You'll have to get the Aircoach Bus 700 for Trinity. The cost is approx €10 - €15 each way, prices are cheaper if you book online prior to arriving. See http://aircoach.ie/

  • If you're staying in the Avondale House, taking the stop at The Gresham Hotel will place you just around the block from the Avondale.
  • If you're staying at an AirBNB, please take the stop at Trinity college and walk to your destination.

NOTE Dublin Bus do not accept Paper Money (€5 , €10 €20, €50). They also do not give you change if you are due it. If you are due change you will have to head to Dublin Bus Central on O'Connell Street with your ticket to collect the money. Keep your tickets for reimbursement
