hi ive just got a job in dublin starting next month, can anyone tell me their stories of how they commute or whats the best way? I’ve to be in rathmines which is the far side of dublin for 8 o’clock and theres no parking so i have to use public transport!! eekk!
would appreciate any tips, even pm me if you dont want to post, thanks very much.
Best of luck with commuting, and your new job.
You have two options if you don’t or can’t drive.
Either you take the train in Laytown (there is a locked shed for bicycles) and walk, or use buses. Don’t think it’s practical to rathmines, but not sure as my geography is a bit off. There is some people who have a foldable bike that can be brought in the train, but the wheels are very small, not great if you have to cycle a lot.
Or you can use Matthews coaches up to city centre (north side~) and cycle towork. You can put your bicycle for free in the coach (boot).
But dublin 8 seems to be far from O connell street, but cycling doesn’t take too muh time once you’re use to it.
But maybe at work some people are coming from around here and you can try to organise some car pooling system.
You could get the luas from St stephens green, then walk into rathmines….. where abouts in Rathmines will you be working, you might be better getting the bus or even walking from the city but its a good walk
Either the bus or train into Dublin, the number 15 buses all go thru Rathmines, trying to think of other buses that go thru Rathmines, think the number 65. Check the CIE website they should have all of the buses and routes.
yeah if you got the matthews coach to dublin stops in parnell street, then walk down to eden quay the 15 bus goes from there, then will drop you straight to rathmines, that’s perhaps the most direct…you’d just have to figure out the times, etc…but as lai said any of the 15busses, like 15, 15a and b go through rathmines…
ah brilliant, thanks very much all who replied! Its a hell of a trek but its a job at least.. 🙄 [/quote]
