30 APRIL 2023
Mayor Square is in Dublin, in the Docklands area. The National College of Ireland is based there.
Since December 2009, the Mayor Square – NCI Luas stop has been served by the Luas Red Line tram which runs from Tallaght or Saggart to Connolly and the Docklands branch line from Busáras to The Point (3Arena). Dublin Bus serves nearby North Wall Quay with the 33d, 33x, 53a, 90, 142 and 151 bus services, as well as Guild Street with the 757 Airlink service to Dublin Airport.
On Saturday (29 April) it took me hours to get home as the Luas tram service between Beechwood and St Stephen’s Green was suspended. Passengers were advised that buses were available to transport them from Beechwood to the City Center … this was not true. I went to Ranelagh and was unable to get a bus as all that arrived at the bus stop were already full. After an hour I decided to walk to Leeson Street and had to wait for about thirty minutes for a bus to arrive and then about six arrived at the same time.
