Getting to Druid's Glen from Dublin

Hi,

Hope I've the right forum - I'm heading to druids glen (hotel) this weekend from dublin city centre and I'm trying to figure out a way of getting there and the cost involved.

I've looked at renting a car which I'll do if other options aren't cheaper.

An alternative is dart to greystones and taxi to druids glen for there, anyone have an idea of ballpark figure for this??

Many thanks.

The 84 bus will get you pretty close too.

Unless your rental car is costing you bugger all then I'd rail to Greystones and taxi it if I were you, OP. The 84 requires a trip out to UCD and a bit of a walk off the road which may not be fun with heavy bags or on a bad day like today.

You can also catch the 84 at either Bray or Greystones DART, but you're right, a taxi from Greystones might be the most comfortable option, if not the cheapest.

A taxi would be more than that around €20 ish day rate and around €30 max night rate

+1 for Dart to Greystones & taxi from there.

The hotel has courtesy coaches, ring them and ask if they're doing a run into the city at a time that might suit you.
