There’s something very energising about waking up in the heart of such a well-loved city. The Radisson Blu Royal Hotel, Dublin boasts a prime city centre location, at the crossroads of Golden and Chancery lanes. Whether you have a busy day of meetings or some relaxed sightseeing planned, our close proximity to key locations in the city will help each day of your stay start with a bang. This means more time for you, when you choose Blu.

If you’re travelling on business, Dublin’s business district is just a 20-minute walk away. However, if you’re short on time, we will be happy to arrange transportation.

Public transport in Dublin

You can hop on the Light Rail Transit System (Luas) just 5 minutes from the hotel. This is a frequent train service that connects the city centre with the south and south-west suburbs of Dublin. It currently operates two lines – Red and Green. You can find more information about routes on the Luas website.

Dublin is also well-served by buses. There are 110 Dublin Bus routes that circulate the county. Services run from early morning ‘til late at night. Be sure to check the timetable online, as it is subject to change.

From city flights to Dublin bikes

If you need to catch a flight (or are flying in), Dublin International Airport is around a half-hour drive away, which makes at least one leg of your trip hassle-free.

If you’d like an up-close view of Dublin, the city is very pedestrian and bike-friendly, so is ideal for exploring on your own schedule.
