Quickest way to get to to old Tallaght village using public transport from the city centre?

Luas and walk? Or bus?

Depends on the time of day really. I live in the old village and if you get the bus at the right time it's only 15/20 minutes but if you get it at the wrong time it's over an hour.

If it's rush hour then the luas is your best bet no question, but if it is off hour then the bus is the better bet especially since they go right through the old village.

Whereabouts in Tallaght Village are you going? The 77 & 77A go through it as does the 49 and the 50 goes near it. If you're getting the Luas give yourself at least 20 minutes to walk to Tallaght Village if you're unsure of where you're going although there are a couple of shortcuts but I'd need to know the general direction you'd be heading in

I forgot to say the 65 & 65b go by there aswell. Is Foxes Covert the pub near Molloys? If you have enough time I'd get the bus if I were you as they will leave you right outside. If you decide to get the Luas, go to the last stop at the Square. When you get off the Luas turn right and walk straight for five minutes past the black fence of the car park of the Square. Take the 1st turn right and keep following the black fence til you see McDonalds. Cross the road to the McDonalds and go up the walkway between McDonalds and the Garda station. When you come out the other side of the walkway walk across the road, pass the Abberly hotel and walk straight to the end of the road and cross the road. Turn right and then left at the traffic lights. Walk for about 2 minutes and you'll see it across the road from the church. As I said in my previous post allow 20 minutes to walk there. It would probably only take ten minutes but allow for 20 just in case you take a wrong turn. It's a nice enough pub. Have fun

Can anyone recommend a good place to eat in Tallaght? Something a bit more sophisticated is what I'm looking for.

thanks

Blue Bar does good food, last time I ate in it. Dunno when they stop serving food though....

Also might be a few decent resteraunts in the newer quarters (just off the Luas stop). Have a mosey around.

A restaurant? There aren't any.

In that area, you're really best off sticking to Tallaght village or the area around the square for eats.
