There is no doubt that Dublin is a very modernized city but has kept its historical atmosphere which may create a bit of challenge when out and about. You will have
several choices of travel but this is all going to depend on just what is you are planning on visiting.
The most common and favored sites to be seen by visitors are mostly located in the heart of the city center. Many of the tourists tend to take up accommodation in this area of the city so much of what they want to see and do is within walking distance. This is a real bonus because one of the biggest complaints in Dublin is the difficulty in finding parking. What off sets this however, is that public transportation is excellent and convenient to access.
Using the Dublin buses themselves is a real adventure for visitors especially when using the double-deckers. Another option that may be a bit quicker and won’t include quite the same laid back site seeing advantages is the Dublin Area Rapid Transit (DART). This is an above train system which will allow you to get where you want to go faster.
You can also take advantage of the Tram, which consists of two lines and is a light rail train system. If you want to go to the suburbs of Dublin then this would be a great choice.
If walking to your destination is not an option you can always take a taxi but don’t expect to find one easily just by hailing one. Your best bet is to go to where they line up waiting for customers. An alternative is to phone and book one for your pick up.
As you can see Dublin offers all of the standard methods for transportation, and it would be a great experience to try each of them just so you get a good feel for the transportation opportunities in Dublin.
