    I want to travel from Heuston to Connnolly station by Luas. I have not used it before. But there are two terminals Connolly and The Point from what i see on the map. I want the Connolly Luas. How do you know which Luas is going to which place? How long would I have to wait for it to come? Thanks

    Take the first that turns up, and get off at Bus Aras. Connolly is across the road from it, you can see it from the Bus Aras stop.

    There's a sign on the front of the luas telling you the terminal it is going to. There are signs on the platform telling you how long you'll have to wait for the next tram.

    Thank you. Is every second Luas for a different terminal?

    No, it's not every second luas as far as know. There might be 2 in a row going to the point for instance.

    Are you traveling by Train/Dart from Connolly? The platforms from there are almost the same distance from the Connolly Luas Stop, as it is from the Bus Aras Luas to the Connolly Luas. Longer even depending on which one you are using.

    A tip: note that the doors at Busáras open on the right hand side (unlike most stops), so try to position yourself and your suitcase on the right hand side to get out more easily.
