Getting to The Abbott Lodge Guest House
By Air/from Airport
Dublin international airport has direct connections to most countries in Europe and major cities in the United States. Several airlines have regular flights from cities all over the UK and London. Dublin airport is located around 10km (7 miles) north of the city.
Dublin Bus runs a special ‘Airlink’ bus to the city centre, which leaves every 10 minutes during the week and every 20 minutes on Sundays. The bus departs from directly outside the Arrivals building and serves Busaras, which is the main terminal for Bus Eireann provincial buses and is a couple of minutes’ walk from Abbott Lodge Guest House.
A regular double-decker Dublin Bus (No 41) service is cheaper than the ‘Airlink’ service, but runs less regularly and tends to take longer. The 41 bus stop is just outside the Arrivals lounge in the airport, to the left.
There is also an abundance of taxis available at the airport which will take you directly to your destination. The average cost for a taxi ride from the airport to the city centre is €20-€30, depending on traffic and extra charges.
To and from Belfast
For visitors arriving into Belfast airport, there are regular bus and train services directly to Dublin, many of them non-stop. The train is your best option, particularly the ‘Enterprise’ – a non-stop train from Belfast Central Station to Connolly Station in Dublin, which takes just over two hours. The ‘Enterprise’ runs approximately every two hours both to and from Dublin To/From other airports.
Other Irish airports with a limited international service include Cork and Shannon, while Galway, Knock, Waterford and Kerry operate domestic and cross-channel services. While the larger towns have regular bus and rail services to Dublin, it is advisable to check services from Knock, Shannon and Kerry before leaving.
Dublin Port is served by two ferry companies – Stena Line and Irish Ferries – both of which have services from Holyhead on the Isle of Anglesea. From Dublin Port, Dublin Bus Nos 53 and 53a from Alexander Road will take you the short distance to the city centre for just 60p. The 53 departs from Beresford Place on the return journey to the port.
To/From Dun Laoghaire
Dun Laoghaire Ferry Port is served by Stena Line only. The 4km (2.5 miles) or 20-minute journey to the city from Dun Laoghaire can be made by Dublin’s only light rail network, the DART (Dublin Area Rapid Transit) , or Dublin Bus, Nos 46a, 7 and 8, will take passengers from just outside the port, to Burgh Quay, right in the city centre.
From Fishguard and Pembroke in Wales, ferry services operate to Rosslare, Co Wexford, which is a couple of hours from Dublin by car. Stena Line operates on the Fishguard to Rosslare route, while Irish Ferries provide a Pembroke to Rosslare crossing. Trains and buses from Rosslare run on a regular basis.
To/From other ports
Other ferry services operate from Swansea to Cork and to Belfast and Larne in Northern Ireland (mainly from Scotland). Both Cork and Belfast have regular rail and bus services to Dublin.
