Ashfield Express Bus Service

Ashfield College provides a subsidised private bus service, to facilitate Ashfield College full-time 5th & 6th year students.

Our bus service is designed to provide convenient access to Ashfield College from areas in Dublin that don’t have direct public transport routes to Dundrum.  In previous years our collection points have included Maynooth, Celbridge, Leixlip, Lucan, Clondalkin, Tallaght, Ballycullen, Templeogue, Castleknock, Blanchardstown and the Naas Road.  Please let us know on registration if you are interested in this service as routes are determined by student demand.

Schedules and pickup points will be confirmed directly with students who have registered for a seat on the bus.  The indicative bus schedule for 2018/19 is outlined below and will be finalised with registered students prior to the commencement of the school year.  Please contact us directly at 01 490-4050 to register your interest.


The Ashfield Express will commence service for the 2018/19 academic year on Wednesday 5th September 2018.

To avail of this private bus service you must be a registered full-time student at Ashfield College for the 2018/19 academic year. 

There are limited seats on this service so it is vital that you indicate your interest in the service at the time of registering.  Registered students are notified by email when the final route and pick up points are confirmed just prior to the commencement of the academic year.  Due to the nature of the service this process can not be completed until close to the commencement of term.

Your seat for the academic year can be secured by paying for the entire academic year (30 weeks) upfront or secured with a deposit of €150 with the balance paid in monthly installments by direct debit.

The bus is heavily subscribed each year and as a result it is not possible to secure a one-way or partial seat arrangement.  Each student wishing to use the bus is required to booking a place for the entire year and this seat is not transferable.


The following stops are indicative and will be confirmed with all students booked on the service prior to the commencement of the academic year.  Call 01 490-4050 for details of availability on either service as there are very limited numbers of seats remaining.
