Here's the state of play with public transport from Saturday morning

Here's what you need to know...

With status red, orange and yellow weather warnings in effect across Ireland until Saturday morning, as the Beast From The East continues to rage, you're probably wondering when things are going to get back to normal.


Public transport services are expected to resume to some degree from Saturday morning, though delays, alterations and reduced frequency of services should be anticipated.

The public transport state of play for this weekend looks like this:

Dublin Bus

At time of writing, Dublin Bus is expected to resume operations on Saturday morning, but customers are advised to expect disruption to scheduled services.

A further update will be issued on Friday evening.


Bus Éireann

A full service schedule will not be in place on Saturday morning, as Bus Éireann anticipates that they may be able to resume a level of service in some parts of the country, dependent on local road conditions.

It is their aim to operate some services on the Expressway inter-city network, along with possible regional and town services. See the official website for updates.

Iarnród Éireann

Irish Rail services are expected to resume on Saturday morning after 9am, subject to overnight route inspections.


Services will likely encounter alterations and delays.

DART services are expected to commence at approximately 8am on Saturday morning.

Exact departures will be posted on in the morning after line and overhead power line inspections.

There is a chance that Southside DART services will be impacted from lunchtime for a number of hours due to the possibility of flooding.



The Luas Red and Green Line Services will not operate on Saturday morning.


Luas will make a decision on when service can resume after 9am on Saturday, with limited services expected to resume later in the day, with reduced frequency and not operating a full line.

Sections of the Luas line especially affected by the snow include between Sandyford and Brides Glen on the Green Line, and between Red Cow and Saggart on the Red line.

Commercial Bus Services

Those availing of commercial bus services are advised to check their respective websites and social media pages.

Meanwhile, AA Roadwatch strongly advise the public to avoid travel where possible and not take any unnecessary risks or journeys while the red level weather warning is in effect.
