Taxi will be best option. Traffic hould be light, so quick journey on the m50. Bus would be difficult that late, especially after Dublin Airport!

EUR30 - check with the hotel in advance. All Dublin taxi's print receipt's, so you are far less likely to be ripped off.

While it would be possible to take a bus into the city and then the luas tram to the Red Cow you would still be left with about 1km to walk to your hotel.

I would recommend a taxi also. It is almost 30km from the airport to your hotel and I would say it will cost 30-35 euro. When you get in the taxi he should take the M1 motorway towards the city, then go southbound on the M50 ringroad as far as the N7 (this is the 2nd exit after the toll plaza) and it is not far to your hotel then which is right beside the N7. You will know you are on the M50 and close to your exit when you start seeing roadworks everywhere!

Its handy to have an idea which way you are going as unfortunately there are good and bad taxi drivers everywhere who can take advantage of tourists.

On the way back if you are leaving earlier you could take a bus or tram to the city centre and get the 747 bus to the airport. You can get day passes that will also allow you to use the express airport services

Hi pebz

Taking the City route to your Hotel at that time of the evening (higher night rate) will cost €35 to €40 depending on traffic

Taking the M 50 route to your Hotel, the distance is a little longer about (2-3klm) but it is usually faster than going through the City

Cost €40 to €45 plus €1.90 for the toll bridge

Be sure to tell the driver which way you want to go

and don't forget to take your receipt
