How to get around in Dublin

Dublin is relatively small and accessible, and safe enough to get around on foot, while the Luas tram system and the suburban rail system, the DART, provide excellent transport links throughout the city.

DART and Rail
The iconic DART (Dublin Area Rapid Transit) system is a fast and frequent way of travelling in the city. The electric rail system follows the eastern coastline from north Dublin, right through the city centre to southern suburbs. Trains run regularly, have free Wi-Fi and provide one of the fastest ways to transport you around the city.

Dublin has an extensive network of public bus routes. Visit the Dublin Bus website for routes, timetables and fare information. 

Luas is Dublin's light-rail transit service - a swift, reliable tram system crossing the city on two lines. Tickets for Luas (the Irish word for 'speed') can be purchased at street side vending machines. More information can be found here.
