Travel to UCD Belfield

From Dublin Airport:

There is an excellent Aircoach service from Dublin Airport to Belfield at very reasonable rates, maximum fare of €20 return. The bus also stops close to the Stillorgan entrance to UCD in both directions – see blue icons on map. Aircoach can also be booked in advance on line. The link below gives prices, timetables and online booking info.

There are also plenty of taxis in the airport but they can be quite expensive at around €40 per journey. It could cost even more depending on time of day, traffic conditions etc.

From your accommodation:

Conference participants using Airbnb should carefully check the maps provided here that the location of their accommodation is on relevant bus routes or within walking distance of UCD.

The Talbot Hotel in Stillorgan is within 20 mins walking distance. They also offer a shuttle service free but it must be booked the night before.

The following bus routes serve the majority of B&Bs and hotels listed on the accommodation page.

See lines in blue on map for bus routes from city centre.
