Premise
“Check irishrail.ie for timetables. Clongriffin dart station is less than a 10 minute walk away and darts run regularly to Dublin City Centre. If you plan on using public transport a lot then the best thing is to buy a leap card which you can top up to cover all your trips. There's also an alternative small station just before Sutton village (a 5 minute walk along the coast) with darts also running frequently into the City Centre. Again check the timetables online for times. ”
