Population: 1.500.000

Medieval, Georgian and modern architecture provide a backdrop to a friendly bustling port where the cosmopolitan and charming meet in a delightful diversity that is Dublin.

Dublin is the capital of the Republic of Ireland and is Ireland’s largest city. It is located on the east coast of Ireland, overlooking Dublin Bay. Dublin City is surrounded by the greater Dublin area or Dublin County where the visitor can find an abundance of picturesque seaside villages, rolling mountains and rural hinterland, all within half an hour of the city centre.

Dublin enjoys a maritime temperate climate characterised by mild winters, cool summers, and a lack of temperature extremes. Contrary to popular belief, Dublin does not experience as high rainfall as the West of Ireland, which receives twice that of the capital city.

Dublin has fewer rainy days, on average, than London. The average maximum January temperature is 8°C, the average maximum July temperature is 20°C. The sunniest months, on average, are May and June.

The wettest months, on average, are December and August. The driest month is April. Due to Dublin's high latitude, it experiences long summer days (around 19 hours of daylight) and short winter days (as short as nine hours).

Dublin has an extensive bus network but only a few rail and tram lines.  The buses can be slow and unreliable due to the city’s traffic but for many destinations outside the city centre (including the airport) they are the only public transport option. 

On most city buses the fare depends on the distance you travel.  If you are paying in cash, you tell the driver your destination, s/he tells you the fare, you drop the required coins in the farebox and s/he prints off your ticket. 

If you plan to use buses more than a few times in Dublin, it's well worth getting some type of prepaid ticket or pass, many of which are also valid on rail and/or tram services, such as the Leap Card. When using a Leap Card, you can save up to 19% versus Dublin Bus main cash fares. 

One-way Ticket (Local Transport):  2.50 €         

Monthly Pass (Regular Price):  120.00 €
