GOA Meet Travel Advisory

The RTÉ has this little story about Dublin Bus. The up, down and sideways of the issue aside, anyone coming to Dublin on March 9th for the GOA meet or leaving on the 10th (I'm looking at you Arb) should keep an eye on developments.

That said, for getting to and from the airport, there is still the Aircoach. For getting around the city, well it's small enough really and there's also the Luas.

Thankfully the bar chosen for the meeting is in the Temple Bar last I checked, so just a wee walk away from where the Aircoach would leave any of our would be invaders.

More on this as it becomes available and if it becomes terribly relevant, so far we'll just have to take a little more time and enjoy the chaos of a city without its main bus service. Personally till I remembered I was taking that day off, I had planned to walk to work to be amused by the traffic.

Oh you'll be taken care of :P Don't worry.

The strike may not even go ahead, but forewarned and all that.

The bar is just up the road from Temple Bar, right beside Christchurch.

They heard we were coming, didn't they?

If they are still striking a taxi from the airport to the city centre will cost around €20-€30, depending on how much the taxi guy thinks he can fleesh the foreigners.

Once in the city pretty much everywhere is walkable so no need to worry about transport.

Better option than the Taxi though is an Aircoach.

€18 for a return ticket that'll be valid the entire length of your trip
