If you're arriving by bus, take the airlink 747 bus to the city centre. Catch it from outside both airport terminals every 15 minutes. It costs €6 for a single or €10 for a return. Get off at Ushers Quay and it’s a short walk to the hostel from there.

If you are taking a taxi from the airport it will take 25 minutes to get to the Dublin hostel and cost about €30. Or book your return taxi to the airport at reception for a special €22 flat fee.

Generator Dublin

From the Irish music belting out of Temple Bar pubs to the elegant splendour of Georgian terraces and squares, the city has many fascinating faces, every one of them ready to greet you with a welcoming smile and a pint of Guinness.

You'll find Generator Dublin in the hip Smithfield neighbourhood, adjacent to the Jameson Distillery, just a short walk from Temple Bar. The hostel’s open social spaces and café and bar, with its reclaimed wood, exposed brickwork and original stonework, give the place an unruffled industrial feel. Generator Dublin also boasts a shared room with a hot tub if you’re after a more luxurious hostel experience – ideal for a girls or boys weekend.
