The Luas Red Line is the key east-west tram line running through Dublin. From Abbey Street where I ended up after the Yellow Umbrella Free Walking Tour and lunch, I headed on to Connolly Railway Station by Luas tram for the next goal while in Ireland.
The next tram arrival times as shown on the platform. Good thing that the next train is Connolly-bound, saving me waiting time.

Turning into Busaras.
Arriving at Busaras, a major tram stop on the Red Line. Most passengers would alight here to change to a long-distance bus, and also for a short walk to Connolly Railway Station in case they are on a The Point tram, which saves waiting time.

Here, I continued on to find the one strange train I’ve always heard about since 2009.
