USING PUBLIC TRANSPORT – BUYING A “LEAP” CARD

The most cost effective and trouble free way to use all Dublin City public transport is to use buy a multi-day travel card, called a “Leap Card” at the airport when you arrive. This allows you to travel on buses, on-street trams (Luas) and suburban rail (DART).

You can buy a Leap Card at each of Dublin Airport’s two terminals as follows. Ask at the outlet for options for number of days etc. A 72-hour card is probably enough for most delegates

In Terminal 1 you can buy a leap card in the arrivals hall at the Bus & Travel Information desk. Turn right after you come out of Customs area and see this desk at the end of the hall.
