When you arrive at Dublin airport arrivals hall (terminal 1 or 2) various buses are located outside the main arrival hall doors.

Aircoach (700) – The Aircoach is an express bus into the city centre. It runs 7 days a week every 30 minutes.
The price is €8.00 for a single, €12 for return. Once you’re on the bus the stop you are looking for is O’Connell Bridge – ask the driver to let you know when the bus has arrived here. When you reach O’Connell Bridge, head south over the river and turn right on to Aston Quay and Abigail’s will be on your left-hand side.

Public Bus 16 – If you want a cheaper option other than the Aircoach, you can take the regular Dublin Bus, number 16 towards Ballinteer, which leaves from outside the terminal 1 arrivals hall. It will take a little longer as it will make a lot of stops on the way to the city centre but is a good way to save a few euros. The bus runs Monday to Saturday from 6:00am to 11:30pm and Sundays from 8:00am to 11:30pm.

The fare is €3.30 and you must pay by coins and have the exact change for the driver as they cannot give you change in return. Get off the bus at D’Olier Street and it’s just a 4 min walk following the directions below.

Public Bus 41 – The number 41 towards Abbey Street is almost the same as the 16, but it takes a different route to the city centre. Get off the bus at O’Connell Street. When you reach O’Connell Street, head south over the river and turn right on to Aston Quay and Abigail’s will be on your left-hand side

Taxi – A taxi from the airport will be roughly between €25-€30 depending on the time of day and the traffic.
