Bus Station
“This is the nearest shopping mall for all your shopping needs, clothes & footwear stores, pharmacies, cafes, restaurants, food stores and much more. It's easy to get to and parking is free. It's a much more convenient option than going all the way into Dublin City for purchases such as clothes, books, gifts etc. ”
