    Hi all,

    Considering moving to live in Drinan (Kinsealy) in March, would be commuting to Stephens Green 2 or 3 days a week. Most direct public transport option appears to be these 2 buses: 142 from Portmarnock to UCD ; 41x from Swords to UCD. There are 4 or 5 of them each weekday morning and late afternoon. Has anyone experience commuting on these? For example do they fill up quickly (will I find it hard to get on), do they take c. 40 to 50 minutes to get from Drinan to Stephens Green (as Google Maps tells me), are there bus lanes or not? Specific stop I would be getting on is below. Appreciate any info anyone might have, thanks.

    41x Bus - I would be getting on at Holywell Close stop, 22nd stop on the route.

    142 - Feltrim Business Park - 20th stop on the route.
