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 & Dublin Express bus stops in the city are used by a number of other Bus routes, and so the Aircoach or Dublin Express 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, Connolly Station and many city centre amenities and attractions. If you wish to travel to Heuston 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.

Dublin Express has a number of stops on both of its route; 782 & 784 and the driver stops at each of them. If you wish to go to Connolly or Heuston Rail Station you will travel on route 782 and on this route you can also get to Temple Bar with a short walk from Aston or Wellington Quay which is one of the first stops after you board at Dublin Airport.

Route 784 will bring you to Trinity College, Pearse Rail Station and Merrion Square where there is plenty luxurious hotels in this area and and just down the road is St. Stephen's Green which is a 22-acre garden square and public park.



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
