This is the central bus station in Dublin for intercity and regional bus services operated by Bus Éireann. If you are travelling out of Dublin by bus, you will most likely be taking a bus from here. Handily, it is only a 5 minute walk from the hotel.

Connolly Station

This station is one of the main railway stations in Dublin and is a focal point in the Irish route network. Opened in 1844 as Amiens Street Station, the ornate facade has a distinctive Italianate tower at it's centre. On the north side of the River Liffey, it provides intercity and commuter services to the north, north-west and south-east. The north-south Dublin Area Rapid Transit (DART) service also passes through the station. The station offices are the headquarters of Irish Rail, Iarnród Éireann.

Heuston Station

Heuston Station is Dublin's other railway station serving the south, southwest and west of Ireland. It is operated by Iarnród Éireann (IE), the national railway operator. It also houses the head office of IE's parent company, Córas Iompair Éireann (CIE).

Dublin Area Rapid Transit (suburban rail system)

The Dublin Area Rapid Transit, known everywhere as the D.A.R.T., runs along the coastline of Dublin Bay from Greystones in County Wicklow through Dublin City Centre to Howth and Malahide in County Dublin. The closest stop to the hotel is Connolly Station.

LUAS (tram system)

The LUAS (the Irish word for speed) tram service has 2 lines. One, known as the Green Line, runs from Bride's Glen in the south of the county to St. Stephen's Green, which is about a 30 minute walk from the hotel. The other route, known as the Red Line, runs from Tallaght in the south west of Dublin to the 3 Arena venue on the north side of the city. These trams, now familiar sights on Dublin's busy streets are a fast and efficient way to travel. You can buy tickets at touch-screen machines located at all of the stops. The nearest stop to O'Shea's Hotel would be the stop at Busaras. This is the most convenient mode of travel to the 3 Arena, Heuston train station and several places of interest along the route including the Guinness Storehouse.
