Travel

Dublin is well served by transport links into the city from Dublin airport to the north of the city, its ferry port to the East and its two main central railway stations Connolly and Dublin Heuston, so getting around once you arrive is easy by rail, tram, bus or taxi. You can also hire a bike for free for 30 minutes if you fancy seeing the sights in the fresh air. Temple Bar is on the Southbank of the River Liffey in the city and is the major cultural and nightlife capital. It is served by the Temple Bar train station and as you would expect has plenty of taxis once you’re there.
