Dublin International Airport Ground Transportation

Dublin Airport is located just off the M1 motorway (Dublin-Belfast road) approximately 10 km (6 mi) north from the city centre and 2 km (1 mi) south of the town of Swords.

Until the rail link (Metro North) to Dublin city centre is completed (see below), the public transport options to the city are taxis, buses, and private transport. Passengers can however connect by bus or taxi to Dublin's railway stations.

Taxi

To Dublin Airport: Passengers arriving by taxi will be set down on the Departures roadway directly outside the terminal building. From Dublin Airport: Taxis are available from the forecourt on the Arrivals level road. A taxi dispatcher is available at the taxi rank to provide information and assistance.

Bus

Dublin Airport is served by over 700 bus and coach services daily. Dublin Bus is the major provider of bus services to and from Dublin Airport. Some of these routes connect to Busáras (Dublin's central bus station for intercity and regional bus services), Dublin Connolly railway station and Dublin Heuston railway station. There are several other operators which provide bus service to the airport, both city services and national coach service.

City bus services from Dublin Airport

Bus services are available on the arrivals level. Bus services which connect to Busáras (Dublin's central bus station for intercity and regional bus services) also serve Dublin Connolly railway station and the Luas Red Line (both of which are beside Busáras). Bus services which connect to Dublin Heuston railway station also serve the Luas Red Line, which has a stop at Heuston. Some services serve Drumcondra suburban railway station, which is on the Connolly to Maynooth railway line.

Dublin Bus operates two express 'Airlink' services which operate to the city's bus and railway stations via the Dublin Port Tunnel to avoid suburban traffic, and are therefore quicker than other bus services, especially in rush hour. These services are 'Airlink' route 747 to Busáras (Dublin Connolly railway station and the Luas Red Line are also beside Busáras), and 'Airlink' route 748 to Busáras and Dublin Heuston railway station.

Aircoach operates non-stop service to Dublin city centre, and the southside suburbs of Ballsbridge, Donnybrook, Leopardstown, and Sandyford, with stops at some of Dublin's major hotels. Aircoach also provides national coach service from Dublin Airport to Cork and Belfast with stops in between.

Urbus provide bus service between the airport and the northside suburbs of Swords, Castleknock, and Blanchardstown (also Blanchardstown Shopping Centre, Blanchardstown Institute of Technology, and Blanchardstown Business Park).

National Coach services from Dublin Airport

To connect to the national coach services of Ireland's largest national bus company Bus Éireann (English: Irish Bus), passengers must first get to Busáras (Dublin's central bus station) using one of the many city services available from the airport. Bus Éireann also provide several national coach services direct from the airport. Several other companies offer national coach services from the airport.

Connecting with city/intercity rail services and Luas trams

Iarnród Éireann (Irish Rail) provide suburban and intercity railway services from Dublin Connolly and Dublin Heuston railway stations. There are direct regular bus services to both stations from the airport. Some city bus services serve Drumcondra suburban railway station, which is on the Connolly to Maynooth railway line. Bus services to Busáras/Dublin Connolly and Dublin Heuston railway stations connect with the Luas Red Line. Passengers wishing to connect with the Luas Green Line may use the Aircoach service, although its nearest outbound stop to the Green Line is at Trinity College, a short walk from St Stephen's Green. Alternatively passengers could take Dublin Bus service 16A from the airport which will connect with the Harcourt Street stop on the Luas Green Line.
