Taxi about €25-30. Nearest dedicated airport express coach or bus services are Aircoach and Airlink 747, both of which serve the Trinity College/College Green area, about 5 minutes from the hotel.

Airlink cost is €6 and Aircoach €7. Note that Airlink 747 serves a single but somewhat circuituous route from the airport to the city centre. Aircoach runs on a number of routes but has some which are more direct from the airport to the city centre than Airlink.

If going by Aircoach or Airlink, ask to be let of in College Green. As far as I know, Aircoach stop outside Trinity College, at the bottom of Grafton St. You just walk around the college perimiter, which you will keep on your right. See this google map link - http://g.co/maps/e35nn

Airlink stops in College Green/Dame St. As you get off the bus, Trinity will be down to your left. Walk down to its main entrance gate, and then follow the directions above. There is little or no difference in the time it will take you to get to the hotel from either stop

Probabaly Aircoach, as they are generally blue - though they sometimes carry advertising which can result in a full colour change for the entire bus. However, as already mentioned, the set-down locations for both Aircoach and Airlink are within a very short distance of each other (50-100 meters) outside Trinity College, so it makes no difference as to which you take in getting to your hotel.

Aircoach probably the best in this situation, more comfortable and slightly quicker.

Here is a link to the Aircoach (blue bus) route map from Dublin airport - www.aircoach.ie/map.routes.ballsbridge.php

You get off at the Trinity College/Grafton St stop, which is the third stop from the airport. Just ask the driver to let you know, when you are there. Then follow my previous instructions from there to the hotel

Piping up to give my two cents from experience: I took the Aircoach last year, and it was wonderfully easy getting from the airport to my hotel (near Merrion Square). Getting back to the airport took a lot longer, but it was just a matter of much more traffic and also more passengers getting on and off.

But it was very easy to use.
