Getting to Dublin

Dublin is conveniently served by both an international airport and port, with frequent European and international services to both. Full details of the services to and from Dublin can be found on the Dublin Airport and Dublin Port websites.

Other Irish airports with international services include Cork, Shannon and Ireland West Airport at Knock and all have excellent connections with Dublin.

Getting to University College Dublin (UCD)

Travel from Dublin Airport

By Aircoach

The Aircoach operates from the forecourts directly outside both terminals. 

Terminal 1: The stop is located at the front door on the Arrivals road at Terminal 1. On exiting the baggage reclaim area turn left and turn left immediately as you exit the terminal building.

Terminal 2: The stop is located on the Departures Road at Terminal 2. On exiting the baggage reclaim area please continue along the same level following the signs for buses and coaches, cross the footbridge, and then exit down the escalator on the left-hand side.

There are two main entrances to the UCD campus.  The front entrance is known as the Stillorgan entrance.   The Aircoach [From Dublin airport to Leopardstown] stops on the opposite side of the dual carriageway to UCD on the N11 and you will walk across the flyover.  There are renovations at this entrance, so there are roadworks entering the campus. 

Aircoach tickets can be pre-booked using this link.

By taxi

If you are travelling by taxi to your accommodation on campus you should ask the driver to drop you at the UCD Village Reception (aim for the Centra store shown on the map).  Also see accommodation page.

If you are travelling direct to the conference ask the driver to drop you at O'Reilly Hall.

If you are travelling direct to Bone School ask the driver to drop you at UCD University Club and navigate your way to the O'Brien Centre for Science using this map.

Suggested taxi services are through apps - Free Now and Lynk.  Uber is also available but not so much used in Dublin and can take a while to pick up.
