The Aircoach service, which leaves every fifteen minutes from Dublin
Airport, stops outside Trinity College on Grafton Street, which is
roughly a 10 minute walk to your hotel.
The Aircoach service to Dublin Airport stops at various city centre
locations, such as O'Connell St. and also outside Thomas Pink Shirt Shop
at the top of Dawson Street (St Stephen's Green end). Allow an hour for
your journey, though in non-peak hours the journey is significantly
shorter. For further information see www.aircoach.ie
