From the Airport
This is a step by step description of the easiest, fastest (and cheapest) way to get from Dub-lin Airport to Garden Lane Backpackers:
1. Just outside the Airport you need to take the bus 747 toward Heuston Station, it takes about 40 mins and costs 6 euros (10 euros for a return ticket).
2. You get off at High Street (stop number 1937 – The Liberties).
3. Once you get off, you follow the street the bus continues, then the road splits and you keep left on Thomas Street, there’s a SPAR on the way.
4. Then you will see Francis Street on your left (after the pharmacy but before the café), take it and follow the road until Carman’s Hall (on the right, opposite O’Sullivan’s Antiques). Take that street and keep walking until Ash Street (second on the right) and then immediately turn right again. You are now in Garden Lane and we are the only address in this small street.

3. Once you get off, you follow the street the bus continues, then the road splits and you keep left on Thomas Street, passing a SPAR, a pharmacy. You continue all the way till you see a church to your right and a poster on a building to your left that says “Vicar street”. Take this small ally – looks dark but is safe.
4. With a playground to your left and a sport court to your right you keep right and then the next left (Catherine street).
