Dublin Bus has created new routes you can ride for free to get to all your most anticipated events on Culture Night.
Culture Night Dublin has partnered with Dublin Bus to create three bus routes to get Dubliners to and from popular cultural venues on Culture Night, Friday September 23. And you can ride these shuttle buses completely free of charge.
The first route, Route A, will College Green (DoDublin Stop No 10). The bus will take any Culture Night attendants to Kildare Street, St. Stephen’s Green, Leeson Street, Merrion Square and Westland Row before finishing off at College Green again. Route A will run from 18.00 to 22.40, departing every 20 minutes. This route is ideal for anyone attending events at Trinity College Dublin, the National Gallery of Ireland or The Museum of Literature Ireland. This route is also convenient anyone who wants to attend cultural events in the South Georgian Quarter, as listed on the Culture Night programme.
Bus Route B will take people from Ashton Quay to Bridge Street, Christ Church, St. Patrick’s Cathedral, Thomas Street, the Guinness Storehouse, Military Road, Collins Barrack, Arran’s Quay and George’s Quay. This bus will run from 18:00 to 23:00 every 20 minutes. It’s perfect for anyone looking for some culture in the Liberties or Temple Bar. Here you can find multiple events in museums like Chester Beatty and hubs like Dublin Port.
Bus Route C will start at Bachelor’s Walk, before taking attendants to O’Connell Street, Parnell Square, Abbey Street, Eden Quay, Custom House Square, Grand Canal Square, Windmill Lane Studio and Aston Quay. This route will also run every 20 minutes from 18:00 to 22:40. It can take you to the Docklands, as can Route B. Route C will also take you to North Dublin City to catch some events like Muslim Sisters of Eire in the GPO, or the premiere of Joyce’s Women in the Abbey Theatre.
