Coaches to Dublin

Dublin is the capital city of Southern Ireland, and is situated on the east coast of the country, on the Irish sea. The transport needs of the city are served mainly by the Dublin Bus network, and the Luas tram network. The city has six main bus stations, Cunningham Road, Phibsboro, Ringsend, Donnybrook, Summerhill and the central coach station, Busaras.

Which is the main coach station in Dublin?

Busaras is located on Store Street, and coaches arriving from the ferry port of Dun Laoighre terminate here. Eurolines runs coaches to Dublin from Victoria coach station in London with one departure per day, travelling overnight.

Which coach companies offer coaches to Dublin?

The London-Dublin service runs all the year round, a distance of about 370 miles. It leaves London at about 6:00 p.m. and arrives in Dublin between 6:00-6:30 a.m. Aside from leaving the bus while on the ferry crossing from Holyhead, no changes are involved. Companies that serve Busaras from cities all over Ireland include Bus Eireann, Sinbad, Citylink and Go Bus. Disembarking passengers will find mainline rail connections from nearby Connolly railway station, a Luas alighting point and buses and coaches to Dublin Airport.
