Other ways to get to your residence

There are a few different buses that leave from Dublin airport (T1) that take you to the city centre. The Airlink 747 or 757 (€7 single ticket or €12 return) which is the most direct route. Air Coach (€6 single ticket or €11 return). The number 16 (Dublin bus) which costs €3.20 (have exact money as no change will be provided). It takes 30 to 45 minutes from the airport to the city centre. The number 16 also stops a three minute walk away from the school location. We recommend students staying for 1 day up to 7 days to get a Visitor’s Leap Card which allows them to use any form of public transport as much as they like:
• 1 day (24 hours) – €10.00
• 3 days (72 hours) – €19.50
