Busaras, Dublin
(1/5 based on 85+ reviews on the web)
Busáras is the central bus station in Dublin, Ireland for Intercity and regional bus services operated by Bus Éireann. Busáras is also a stop on the Red Line of the Luas system, in Store Street just before the terminus at Dublin Connolly railway station. Áras Mhic Dhiarmada is the official name of the building, which also includes the headquarters of the Department of Social Protection. CIÉ, parent of Bus Éireann, rents the lower floors from the Department. Áras Mhic Dhiarmada is named after Seán Mac Diarmada, a leader of the Easter Rising in 1916.ArchitectureBusáras was designed by Michael Scott and his team of young architects and designers between 1945 and 1953. It was built against a background of public opposition which centred on the external appearance, function and excessive cost – over £1,000,000 before completion in 1953. Simultaneously loathed by some of the populace and loved by architectural purists, the building was designed in an International Modern style between 1945 and 1953. A number of the original fixtures and fittings designed by Scott still exist, including terrazzo floor tiles, and large timber wall panels.

  • Helpful and friendly staff but disgusting toilet facilities for the national bus station. Also disturbed several times by people asking for money 
  • The bus station is dirty as any other. Could be better. The information of the bus are in pamphlets and I confess that I didn't get anything. I had to ask and dao you the answer anyway.

  • Walk from Connolly train station and tram stops away, and is a transport hub. Almost all long-distance bus from Dublin Bus Elan's stop here, but some long-haul buses bypass here. Has not offers fine article, the restrooms are very clean. Is probably not a place to stay for a long time. The kiosk is open even on Sunday.
