If you’re planning to be out and about over the Halloween Bank Holiday weekend, you can expect changes to public transport schedules. Irish Rail (including DART) users will be most affected due to engineering works on some lines. We’ve also compiled the major alterations for Dublin Bus, Luas and Bus Éireann.
As always on a bank holiday, services are expected to be busy – so it’s best to book in advance if possible and leave plenty of extra time for your journey.
Engineering works will take place between Killester and Skerries on Saturday and Sunday. As a result, the following changes will take place on those days:
SATURDAY AND SUNDAY
A Sunday service will be in operation on Monday. Otherwise, services over the weekend will operate as normal.
A full Nitelink service will operate on Friday and Saturday, but there will be no Nitelink on Sunday. Note that departure times on Saturday are not affected by the clocks going back one hour; i.e. times are as they would be otherwise.
Diversions will be in place to a number of bus services between 7pm on Friday and 6pm on Monday due to Dublin Marathon. Full details are on the Dublin Bus website.
Diversions will be in place in Swords on Tuesday 31st between 8pm, due to the Fingal Festival of Fire. Full details are on the Dublin Bus website.
