Dublin trams (Luas)


Dublin’s tram network is called ‘Luas’ (the Irish for ‘speed’). There are two lines, Green and Red, which serve many areas of Central Dublin and some residential areas (mainly in the south and southwest of the city). Our Dublin rail map shows you the routes.

The two tram lines intersect at various locations with Dublin’s DART and Commuter train services and airport bus services. Below you’ll find information about tram routes, hours of operation, frequency, wheelchair accessibility and more.


Areas served / route map

The Green Line runs from Broombridge in North Dublin down to Bride’s Glen in the south, via Central Dublin. The Red Line runs from The Point or Connolly Station in Central Dublin to Saggart or Tallaght in southwest Dublin.

Our Dublin rail map provides an overview of these routes, along with interchanges with other public transport services in Dublin.

Hours of operation

First and last tram times vary by stop, so the below should be viewed as a guide only. For stop-specific information, please use a journey planner in advance of travel.

  • Monday-Friday: you can catch trams from around 5.30am in the morning until around 12.30am at night.

  • Saturday: you can catch trams from around 6.30am until 12.30am at night.

Frequency

  • Services run at regular intervals. You can usually expect trams every 4-6 minutes during rush hour (7am-10am and 4pm-7pm), and roughly every 10 minutes outside of these times.
