Our location in beautiful Portmarnock, with its long beach known as the ‘Velvet Strand’, is as close to the city centre as a thirty minute bus journey. So you can enjoy the tranquillity of our quiet, scenic location and also experience the buzz of Dublin city centre.

The bus leaves for the city centre from outside the Thatched Cottage next door.

The one-way fare is currently €2.65– so it does not break the bank. One-, two- and three-day Rambler tickets are also available if you are planning a longer stay. Why drive a car into the city when it can cost €3.50 per hour to park?

The bus leaves you in the city centre and with the 'LUAS' tram, you can easily visit the far side of the city with its Museums and Art Galleries.

The last bus returns at 23:30 but late night buses are available until 04:00 from Thursday to Sunday.
