Default Sallins to Dublin

Howiya lads, quick question!

I've just been told by work that we're being moved to Adelaide road as of February, which means that since I'm living in sallins I now need to use the train.

What I'm wondering is what service would I be looking for? Will it just be straight to Heuston and then a bus or is there a more direct route?

Train to Heuston then 92 bus and walk from Leeson Street, 92 bus isn't the most frequent though, could get the 91 to the Central Bank and walk

You can get a single, return, weekly or monthly ticket to Dublin City Centre which includes the 90/92/Luas to/from Heuston

At the ticket vending machine select 'Dublin City Centre' as the destination, select the ticket you want and the next screen select the Luas+Bus option, this is valid only on 91/92 and the Luas between Heuston and Connolly

Alternatively Luas to Connolly and the 128 which goes down Adelaide Rd

You could also sign up for the Dublin Bike scheme and cycle from Smithfield to Earlsfort Terrace.

Route 92 would be best for the Leeson Street end of Adelaide Road, although its only a 5-10 minute walk anyway.

Make sure you get the bus add-on for your train ticket and consider the bus/Luas add on.

It's around €20 a month; don't have the exact amount handy.

Sallins Heuston is €123.00 per month

If you want the 90/92/Luas add on add a further €24

You should see if you can get the ticket through the taxsaver scheme, it will seriously reduce the cost http://www.taxsaver.ie/ check with your HR department as it is done through your employer.
