Lansdowne Rd to Airport

Postby Cor. Ind. » April 3rd, 2017, 10:03 pm

Dublin is such a dump. Is there really no train to the airport yet?

How long should it take to get from Lansdowne Rd to the Airport do you think? Game's at 3.15 on a Saturday. Will I catch 7.20 flight or will I have to wait for 8.30?

Cheers!

Thank you for your constructive review.

If you stay in your seat at the end of the game, the personal attendant will come around taking names for the complimentary scenic chauffeur drive to the airport... Just need to wait till the crowds die down so stay in the seat and they come around about 20 mins after

Do you plan on walking or hitching?

I've gone with the 8.30. More relaxing. Can't believe that green train by the station still doesn't go to either Cork or the Airport.

No wonder all the Uk banks & insurers are choosing the Benelux for passporting

The Dart leaves you in Greystones - surely a salt of the earth like you could hitch a ride from there?

You southerners are such snobs!!

Not sure why you'd want to take a Dart - take one of the gondolas from the Dodder via Dublin Bay. Arrive at the airport in style and fully refreshed.

I prefer the slingshot out of greystones myself. Make sure to notch it a couple of degrees extra toward the bay, sometimes the wind kicks up a bit.

Take the DART north to Kilbarrack. Hop off there and ask one of the locals for a lift to the airport.

I see the latest govt whitepaper on transport includes plans to upgrade it to a peashooter.
