Transport information

Dublin Bus

A limited service was offered on 13 bus routes for just four hours yesterday. Services began at 1pm but were withdrawn again at 5pm. Freezing weather conditions meant that services only operated within a six-mile radius of the city centre, with none to the outer suburbs. The company says it will review the situation early this morning.

Intercity trains

All operating as normal apart from the Limerick-Ennis line, which is closed due to flooding.


Severe disruptions in the morning because of multiple points problems at Pearse and Connolly stations. A full service began from Greystones to Pearse Street from 11.30am, while the Maynooth and northern commuter lines opened at 10.30am.

Bus Eireann

Services to Sligo and Ballina did not run because of poor road conditions in Longford. There was some disruption to city services in Cork with diversions in place. Services on the Dublin-Ashbourne route were cancelled, and delays were experienced on services in Leinster.

Dublin Airport

The airport was closed until 10.30am, despite snow and ice crews working through the night.


Services ran as normal.


Gardai closed parts of the N11 at Leopardstown and at Foxrock because of poor conditions. Gritting took place yesterday afternoon.

The M50 at Dublin Airport was dangerous, while the Wicklow and Sally gaps were impassable.
