Located Near

We are based in Upper Gardiner Street next to Mountjoy Park only a few minutes walking from O’Connel Street which is the main street of Dublin. We are only a few minutes walking from the Bus Stop 747 coming from Dublin Airport in only 30 minutes! We're also near to Busaras, the central bus station and Connolly train station. Indeed it’s a very easy walk to the O2 and Croke Park (The legendary stadium of Dublin)
