Travel to Dublin

By air
Dublin Airport is one of the busiest in Europe, with hundreds of daily flights providing a huge range of options.  Direct flights are available from most major cities in the UK and continental Europe.

Dublin Airport is 10km from the city.   Aircoach, Airlink and Dublin Bus provide bus services from both terminals, and metered taxis are also readily available.  The Aircoach (700 route) goes to UCD.

For further information on travel from Dublin Airport, please see

By sea
Dublin Port is located two miles from the city centre, with Irish Ferries and Stena Line offering several daily cruise and fast ferry options from Holyhead on a 3 hour 15 minute crossing.  Fast sailings take just under two hours.  P&O Ferries takes car passengers between Liverpool and Dublin (i.e. not foot passengers).

Getting to UCD
The easiest way to get to the UCD Belfield Campus is by bus.  Several Bus Éireann services from the Greater Dublin area directly serve UCD, Belfield Campus during morning peak.  For further information please visit

Dublin Bus also provide services to the Belfield campus.  For information on how to get to UCD, please see and in particular the Hit The Road site -

Aircoach operates a bus service from Dublin Airport to Leopardstown / Sandyford / Stillorgan which passes UCD.  Further details are available at

Most buses require the exact change, so the easiest way to travel is to buy a Leap Visitor Card, which can be bought online in advance or at the airport or bus station:

There are usually an adequate number of taxis in operation in the city centre at any given time. It is possible to hail a taxi from the street, but convenient taxi ranks are located on O'Connell Street, Middle Abbey Street, Dame Street and St Stephens Green.  The Hailo app is widely used in Dublin.

Car parking facilities are available at owners risk in all UCD car parks with parking available on a first come first served basis.  Parking permits are not required at the time of the Conference.  The closest car park is behind the Law School with access via the Owenstown Entrance.  Note there are barriers on perimeter road around the campus during rush hour so the best entrance to use with a car is the Owenstown Gate.  Vehicles must comply with the traffic arrangements in UCD.
