The official language is English, although the Gaélique is still widespread in Ireland, and the currency used is the Euro. Transportation If you arrive by plane at Dublin Airport, it is only 10 km north of the city. You can either take a taxi to the downtown, or take one of the many buses on the route, including the public system. Please note that there are no trains on this portion. Once in the city, although it is possible and very easy to walk, Dublin offers different modes of transportation like buses (simply called Dublin Bus), train ( DART) or tram (Luas) with only two lines.  Other lines are planned for the future. As we speak, the various transportation systems are becoming integrated. Buying a Smartcard, whose boundaries are beginning to spread throughout the city, offers you access to the bus or the tram for the same price. Taxi is also a good option, but frankly, these are very difficult to find at night. Depending on where you go, it may be easier just to walk. Finally, if you're well equipped or it does not rain, a great way to explore the city is on a bicycle. Dublin has recently joined the city that offers a bike rental service similar to the Velib in Paris, called the Dublinbikes.
