As the crowds gather for MoneyConf 2018, here’s our insider’s guide to the city’s transport links for anyone new to Dublin.

Leap card
Introducing the key to your Dublin travels. Leap cards are welcome on Luas, DART, and Dublin Bus services (including the 747/757 airport services), saving you from drowning in loose change while you see the city. If you’re only in town for a few days, your best option is the Leap Visitor card, available for 1, 3, or 7 day periods. You can purchase the card at most newsagents.

To/from the airport
The Aircoach (route 702) goes from Dublin Airport directly to the RDS main arena, and back again. It runs every 30 mins, but make sure to be at the stop 15 mins before departure. Dublin Bus offers the 747/757 services directly from the airport to the city centre, which is covered by your Leap Visitor card if you decide to purchase one.

To/from the city centre

Train (DART)

When travelling from Dublin city centre, catch a southbound train from Pearse St., Tara St. or Connolly station. Get off at the Lansdowne Road station and walk down Beatty’s Avenue before turning left onto Merrion Road.

Evening departure from the RDS
From RDS Simmonscourt you can follow signs for the Sandymount Dart station, it’s approximately a ten minute walk. From RDS Main Hall you can follow signs for the Lansdowne Road station which is a similar distance away.

Dublin Bus
Morning departure to the RDS
Dublin Bus routes 4 and 7 take you to the RDS. These buses all depart from O’Connell St. and O’Connell Bridge, travelling via Nassau Street and Merrion Square to the RDS. They depart approximately every ten minutes between 7am and 9am each morning. After 9am services depart every 20 minutes. The journey time to the RDS will be around 20 minutes.

Evening departure from the RDS
Dublin Bus routes 4 and 7 will depart from Merrion Road bus stop, outside of the RDS Main Hall on a high-frequency basis between 4pm and 7pm.

The number of pubs in Dublin means that you’ll never find yourself far from a taxi rank. At the RDS, it is located in the car park area of Simmonscourt, and will operate between 2pm and 7pm each day. Don’t forget you can use mytaxi or Uber to hail your taxi to and from the RDS.

Get your daily fix of exercise with a 35 minute walk to the RDS from St. Stephen’s Green. It’s green, it’s healthy, and it’s traffic-free!
