Useful Bus Information

Below is some general information for visitors to Dublin. Hailing a bus may seem like a simple task but different countries have different ways of doing things and many visitors to Dublin don't realise that they have to hold out their arm or the bus may not stop! We also provide information on finding Dublin's famous Temple Bar district and connecting with Dublin's transport interchange hubs.

Hailing the Bus

Please hold out your arm as the bus approaches to show the driver that you wish to board his bus. Aircoach bus stops in the city are used by a number of other Bus routes, and so the Aircoach driver may not realise you wish to board his bus unless you signal in this way. This is the normal way to hail any bus in Dublin city and if you do not hold out your arm the bus may well continue past without stopping.



How will I know when to get off

Our Aircoach route from Dublin Airport to the City Centre only has 2 stops in the heart of Dublin city centre. The first is on Upper O'Connell Street and the second is further down the same street, on the bridge going over the river Liffey. Both stops are just a short walk away from Busáras, Connelly Station and many city centre amenities and attractions. If you wish to travel to Hueston Rail station it is a 20 minute walk or you can catch the No.145 bus from Aston Quay, which is a 2 minute walk from the O'Connell Bridge stop.



Getting to Temple Bar

Temple Bar is one of the most popular destinations for visitors to the city. If you get off on the O'Connell Bridge stop you're practically there already. Simply cross over to the south side and follow the signs, or you can walk along the quays until you reach the famous Ha'penny Bridge (victorian white arched bridge) and then pass through Merchant's Arch to enter into the heart of Temple Bar.



Connecting with Buses and Trains

The Aircoach stops are conveniently located to be a short walk away from all of Dublin's major transport hubs. Visit our Connectivity page for details
