How to Find Us

By car via the M50:
Travel south on the M50 and exit at junction 11.
Follow the signs for Tallaght. You are now travelling on the N81. Continue straight on this road for approximately 1km through the roundabouts and traffic lights.

The Hospital is accessible through the red line on the Luas. The line starts at Connolly Station, runs through Middle Abbey Street, Heuston Station, and finishes in Tallaght. The Hospital is adjacent to the second last stop on this line, aptly named, "Hospital". Although the nearest Luas stop for the main hospital is indeed called "Hospital", if you are travelling to the CLD then you are well advised to disembark at the "Cookstown" stop. Walk along the side of the Hospital to a large set of gates on your left, and entire the grounds via this entrance. The building immediately in front of you will be the Trinity Centre and if you follow the road to the left, you will come quite quickly to the CLD.
