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 Airlink 747 to-wards “Heuston Station”, it takes about 40 mins and costs 7 euros (12 euros for a return ticket).
2. You get off at Christchurch.
3. Once you get off you follow the street than naturally becomes Thomas Street, there’s a SPAR on the way.
4. Then you will see Vicar Street on your left (there is a big sign of the venue). Take that alley and keep walking along the pitch and then detour the block of apartments on the right side. You are now in Garden Lane and we are the only address in this small street.
If you want to you can have a closer look at our location, there's a map on our booking.com profile, which will make it easier to find the way from the bus station :)

1. Walk down the street to Connolly Station
2. Take bus 27 towards Jobstown
3. Get off at Warrenmount, The Coombe
4. Walk back in the direction the bus came from and take a left on the Coombe
5. Take the second street right (Ash street)
6. Garden Lane is immediately on the third street to the right.

From Heuston Rail Station
1. Once you get off the station, take the street where the tram line is for about 6 minutes, walk to the direction opposite to the bridge (river Liffey)
2. Take left on Bow Lane West, near The Obelisk Fountain, walk for about 2 minutes until James Street.
3. At the Bus stop number 1996 take the routes 13 or 40 or 123 towards City Centre for 3 stops.
4. Get off at the bus stops number 1999 on Thomas street, Francis street and cross Thomas Street and walk back until Vicar Street, take that small alley to your left.
5. With a playground to your left and a sport court to your right you keep right and then the next left (Catherine street).
6. The next small street to your left is Garden Lane and we are the only address in this small street.
