Any suggestions on how to best get around Dublin? Taxi, Bus, etc.
They don't seem to have the transit system similar to London or Paris.
Where are you trying to go?
just trying to get around town, doesn't look like there is a subway or metro. I am assuming the buses are probably our best bet.
We have a tram system in Dublin city called the Luas also there is the dart rail service which covers dublins coast. For inner city the Luas is the best bet.
Best way to get around Dublin is to walk if you are staying in the vity centre you are no more than 15 minutes walking from most places of interest . If you want to go to DunLaoghaire or Malahide take the Dart it will cost you €5.20 return or if you want to get to Dundrum or Tallagh shopping centers get the Luas about €4.40 return or Dublin bus has an excellant service but walking would be my choice or hire a bike.
As a couple of the others have said, the best way to see most things is walking. I was in Dublin a couple of weeks ago and walked to most places easily (Dublin is not huge). The bus services are excellent and very frequent. You should have no problems getting around.
I'd have to agree with walking! When I visit, I walk everywhere unless I'm going outside the city centre. Never had any problems (except stopping at too many shops on the way to my destination)!
