You may have noticed that we are not a city centre hotel, in fact, we are approximately 8kms from the centre of Dublin. This may discourage tourists and business travelers from considering Aspect Park West as an accommodation option, but it shouldn’t. We are very well connected by road, rail, bus and Luas. Here are some options for getting to Park West.
If you are driving to Park West, you’re in luck. Not only are we close to the new Nangor Road, but we are easily accessible from the M50 (exit 9) and other national motorways. This makes us easy to reach from Dublin City and further afield. If you’re picking up a car from the airport, you’ll make it to us within 30-minutes and you’ll avoid the City Centre rush. You’ll also save on inflating parking rates with our free parking for all guests for the duration of your stay. You can find us on Google Maps.
Getting to Park West by bus is a very cost effective and speedy way to travel. Dublin Bus are very reasonably priced, it should cost no more than €3.00 to reach Park West from the City on with bus route 151 or 79A. Express Coach is another option, costing just €2.60, this direct but infrequent bus route will get you here in no time. Just ensure you time it well as the bus only departs every 20-30 mins in peak times. Travel on Dublin Bus requires exact fare in coins only, and they don’t offer change on-board.
Another handy way to get to and from the city centre from Aspect Hotel is by Dublin’s reliable train system. The Park West Train station is just 20-minutes by high-speed train from the City Centre and just three minutes’ walk to and from the property. The train is also ideal for onward travel to Kildare and Carlow. You’ll need to purchase a ticket either at the station or online.
Dublin’s light rail system is called Luas – which means ‘speed’ in our native tongue – and lives up to its name. The Luas is a comfortable and speedy way to travel in and out of the city and is reasonably priced. You will need to buy a ticket before boarding the Luas at one of the dedicated ticket machines. You’ll choose where you intend to disembark along the red line or the green. For Park West depart at Kylemore Station, ‘Red Line 2’ zone. If you want to use the Luas you’ll need to purchase separate shuttle bus tickets from the Kylemore Station to the hotel.
If you’d prefer to travel without using public transport, you can hail a taxi easily in the city. If you need to pre-order one for an early pick up to the office or the airport, our friendly reception team can arrange that on your behalf. You can also use the Lynk App. Taxis in Dublin generally don’t accept credit cards without prior booking, so you may need cash and drivers can offer change. Taxi is the least economical way to travel but at €30 to and from the city, it won’t break the bank.
So there you have it, just because we’re outside the city doesn’t mean we’re not well-connected. When you stay in Aspect Hotel Park West you can enjoy all of the benefits of the city while enjoying great value rates and benefits which are only available to guests who book direct.
