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 travellers 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 of the easiest ways to reach us:

By Road

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.

By Bus

The bus is a very cost effective and speedy way to travel in Dublin, especially if you are venturing out of the city instead of in! 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.

By Rail

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 online or at the station before boarding using Irish Rails easy to use website.

By Luas

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 to boot. You will need to buy a ticket before boarding the Luas at one of the dedicated ticket machines at every single stop. You’ll choose where you intend to disembark along the red line, in this case 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 by just sticking out your hand or finding a dedicated taxi rank and stating your destination to the drive. If you need to preorder one for an early pick up to the office or the airport our friendly reception team can arrange that on your behalf, or you can 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.
