The network of buses serving Terminals 1 and 2 is thorough, providing transport to locations across Dublin city proper and the surrounding region. Every day, more than 700 coaches pass through airport grounds, stopping at a pick-up point near Terminal 1. For travellers on a budget who do not have much luggage to contend with, transport by bus can be a reasonable option.

To reach the bus stop, proceed to the glass walkway that connects the two terminals. Halfway down the walkway is a turn-off with a sign indicating bus and coach services.
