Media Cube Location

Relaxing on Dún Laoghaire Pier

Dún Laoghaire, a town on the coast 11km south of Dublin, celebrated its 1,500th anniversary in 1998. It gets its name from the Irish translation, Fort (Dún) of Laoghaire. King Laoghaire was the ancient High King of Ireland before the Vikings arrived.

Dún Laoghaire’s popularity with modern tourists dates back to the 18th century, when it became known as the Irish Riviera. Visitors enjoyed, and still do, the scenery and sea bathing, as well as the local towns of Blackrock, Monkstown, Dalkey and Killiney.

These days, Dún Laoghaire is a high amenity area with a splendid harbour and surrounded by rolling mountains. It is a thriving centre for festivals, cultural events and commercial activities. Golf courses, tennis courts, sports centres are also on offer, as well as a variety of restaurants, pubs, the Pavilion Theatre, shopping centres, parks, etc.

IADT is located on Kill Avenue, less than two miles from the centre of Dún Laoghaire. It can be easily reached by bus routes 4, 46A, 75, 45 and 7. The 46A and 75 bus routes link IADT with the DART suburban rail and national rail network. The 46A stops directly outside the Media Cube for both journeys to the City Centre and Dún Laoghaire. The DART will take you to Dublin City Centre in less than 20 minutes.

The Luas in Sandyford, linked to IADT by bus routes 46A and 75, and the M50, coming up to Shankill, are less than 3 kilometres from IADT.

Media Cube is situated on Kill Avenue and is the first building encountered on the Campus of IADT.
