There are no direct trains from the airport but the Dublin Bus service connects the airport to Connolly and Heuston railway stations. Dublin’s light rail network (LUAS) stops at both Connolly and Heuston stations.

Buses to the city centre leave from the Arrivals Road. The Dublin bus company operates the Airlink bus service between the airport and the city of Dublin.

Aircoach operates a coach service from the airport to Dublin city centre and to other destinations. There are two different routes so make sure you know where you are heading to in the city.
