Transfer Options from Dublin Airport
The Blue Aircoach (€7.00 one way, €12.00 return) leaves from outside the
Arrivals area of both terminals. The “Dublin City Centre/Trinity College” stop,
which is directly on the O’Connell Bridge (over the Liffey) after the “O’Connell
Street” stop, is currently the closest stop to the college. For operational reasons
the bus may stop on D’Olier Street as well (just after the bridge). Map below:
The Green Airlink (€7.00 one way, €12.00 return) also leaves from outside the
Arrivals area of both terminals. The “College Green & Temple Bar” stop on the
747 bus, which follows O’Connell Street on the list, is the closest to college.
The 757 bus will also get you to College, but the closest stop is “Hawkins Street
and Temple Bar” which follows “Eden Quay and O’Connell Street.”

A taxi will cost about €20-€25. It is easiest/cheaper to be dropped at Front Gate
and then walk into the square; if you require door-to-door service, please ask the
driver to enter by the Lincoln Place Gate, and the taxi can then bring you to
Front Square and the Accommodation Office.
Arrival at Trinity College
If you have on-campus accommodation, you should go to the Accommodation
Office first; it is located in the west corner of Front Square in House 10. When
you arrive, please identify yourself as a participant in the Samuel Beckett
Summer School. Check in will be after 2pm each day, but you can store luggage
if you arrive early. Once you have checked in the staff will direct you to your
housing. The Accommodation Office is open from 07.30 to 12.00 midnight each
day. If you arrive earlier or later than this, please go the Front Gate of Trinity,
knock if the door is closed, and the Security staff will have your key and direct
you to your room.
If you do not have on-campus accommodation, the first Summer School event
will begin at 5:00 PM on Sunday 28 July, which will include registration for the
Summer School and a reception/book launch in the Trinity Long Room Hub.
