Use the 46A Bus to reach Dublin Zoo
It is best to use the 46A Bus to get to Dublin Zoo from the City Centre. The nearest stop from The Anchor B&B is situated on O’Connell Street, outside Dublin Bus Headquarters, beside ”The Spire”, travelling north, away from the river. Purchase your ticket as you enter the bus, using metal money only.
Journey time to the Zoo, (which is the last stop) is 15 minutes or so.
The Bus stops on Infirmary Road, outside the North Circular Road entrance gate of The Phoenix Park. Get off the 46A Bus & walk into The Phoenix Park, through The North Circular Road Entrance Gate. Follow the signs for Dublin Zoo, which is a short distance away on foot, a 5 minute walk at most. The 46A back to O’ Connell Street leaves from the same Bus Stop on Infirmary Road, so make sure to remember how to get back.
