Travel Card

For travel by bus, Luas, or DART, we highly recommend that you get a Leap Card for convenience and to save money. 

A TFI Leap Card is a prepaid travel card that is the easiest way to pay your fare on public transport around Ireland. It is valid on busses, trains, DARTs and Luas trams in and around Dublin. It’s more convenient because you don’t have to carry cash or queue at ticket machines and it’s cheaper because journeys cost up to 31% less than cash single tickets. You’ll also get other smart discounts like fare capping and the TFI 90 minute Fare (TFI 90) in Dublin.

Purchase a Leap Card when you arrive in Dublin at once of over 1000 locations, then you can download the Leap Card Top-Up App and instantly check your balance or top up your card.

Taxis

All Irish taxis can be verified by using the TFI Drive Check app to make sure the taxi you are taking has been registered. The app also lets you email a friend with your trip details.

In Dublin, you can use Uber but FreeNow is the more commonly used taxi app.
