What does public transportation look like? Bus transport is the main form of public transport and is common in all cities. The cities of Dublin, Belfast, Cork, Derry, Limerick and Galway all have their own suburban rail networks, although Dublin is the only to have its own tram line. Dublin Airport (airport code DUB) is located 6 miles from the city center and taxis can be found outside the terminal. The journey time is approximately 30 minutes, depending on traffic. Alternatively, you can take bus 16 or 700 which takes about 45 min.
Is Uber or Lyft available? Uber exists in Ireland but it is not normal Uber. Ireland has prohibited Uber from hiring private cars and only allows licensed taxi and limousine drivers to operate. So, when you order a car from Uber you will simply be hiring a taxi pick-up.
What about Wifi? You should have very good access while in cities and towns. In parks or rural areas, reception can be spotty.
