Local transport

Local Transport

Dublin and Belfast have comprehensive local bus networks, as do some other larger towns.

  • The Dublin Area Rapid Transport (DART) rail line runs roughly the length of Dublin's coastline, while the Luas tram system has two popular lines.
  • Taxis tend to be expensive: flagfall is daytime/nighttime €3.60/4 plus €1.10/1.40 per km after the first 500m.
  • Uber is in Dublin and is expected to spread elsewhere.

Border Crossings

Border crossings between Northern Ireland the Republic are unnoticeable; there are no formalities of any kind.
