Directions: Access to the Douglas Hyde Gallery is inside the left of the entrance area to Trinity College from the Nassau Street gate. The exhibition areas are at the bottom of a set of 16 steps but visitors unable to use stairs will be personally guided downstairs via a lift by Gallery staff. Please come to the reception desk at the entrance of the Gallery and inform the staff how you would prefer to access the exhibitions.
The Nassau Street gate is located on Nassau Street directly at the bottom of Dawson Street. Please be aware that extensive Luas works are taking place at this time and pathways can be blocked or uneven.
Nassau Street is serviced by a large number of Dublin Bus services, and the following buses all stop on Nassau Street, close to the entrance of the Gallery: 4, 7, 7b, 7d, 8, 11, 25, 25a, 25b, 25d, 25x, 26, 27x, 32x, 33x, 37, 38, 38a, 38b, 38d, 39, 39a, 41x, 46a, 51d, 51x, 66, 66a, 66b, 66x, 67, 67x, 70, 120, 145. When disembarking a bus, turn left and walk back along Nassau Street to the Nassau Street gate on the right.
The nearest DART station is Pearse. The quickest access is to the Gallery from here would be the Pearse Street entrance to Trinity College, next to the Science Gallery. From here, visitors would be advised to continue straight ahead under the railway bridge until reaching the end of the first large building on the right (The Lloyd Institute). At this point, turn right and follow the gap between the two buildings. You will emerge facing two sports fields. Take the footpath in front of you between the two fields where you will reach a ramp at the side of the Berkley Library. At the top of the ramp continue straight and down the ramp ahead where you will be facing a grassy square (Fellows Square). Diagonally across the square is another ramp leading into the Arts Building. Pass around the square towards, and up this ramp and the entrance of the Gallery is to the right inside this building.
The nearest LUAS station is Stephen’s Green. Alighting from the Luas, head towards the Fusiliers Arch at the corner of Stephen’s Green (opposite the top of Grafton Street) and continue around the outside of the park until you reach the top of Dawson Street. You will need to cross the road at this point. Please be aware that extensive Luas works are taking place at this time and pathways can be blocked or uneven. Continue down Dawson Street to the pedestrian crossing at the bottom where the road meets Nassau Street. The Nassau Street entrance to Trinity College should be a few steps to the right after crossing the road.
The nearest car parking facility is the Setanta Place car park. There are a number of exits to the car park so you should make your way to Nassau Street and approach Trinity College/The Douglas Hyde Gallery from here as described above.
Any visitors wishing to access the Douglas Hyde Gallery on foot through the front entrance of Trinity College should pass through the archway into the main square and continue forwards between the two lawns either side of the path. Head towards the campanile and grass lawns but bear right to the large darker stone building to the right of the lawn (the Old Library). Pass right, through the thin gap between these two buildings (The Old Library and Post-graduate Reading Rooms) into another area with a grass square (Fellows Square) directly ahead of you, is a ramp leading up into the Arts Building. Continue up the ramp and head to the right at the top to reach the entrance of the Douglas Hyde Gallery.
