Ah apologies, I thought that stop was just for airlink.

But in future, I think I will get the aircoach to O'Connell street from Dublin airport and hop on the tram to Heuston from there.....it would be much quicker than the so-called 747 express bus.

The nearest pedestrian crossing is back 150m up the road, so 300m diversion to just cross the road. Or if you are heading for the quays a 500m diversion if you don't want to brave running across the road at the eastlink roundabout. For an area with such a high % of HGVs it really is not on.

They should just move the stop to the quays, opposite the outbound stop. Either that or build a pedestrian crossing.
I got a 747 from the airport to Point Village a few weeks ago and was thinking exactly the same thing. It was grand at 9:30PM but I'd not want to be crossing at peak hours.
