Commute to our Office Space, Sandyford

The Glasshouses office space, Sandyford, is easy to get to by car or public transportation. If you do not drive or wish to travel by bus or train for other reasons, then Sandyford is perfect. 

If you live near a Luas, there is the Sandyford and Stillorgan stops. The Stillorgan Luas stop actually brings you closer to the beacon south quarter. The Luas can be a pleasant alternative to the bus if you get motion sick. However, if you do not live near a Luas, here are some of the bus routes that pass through Sandyford: the 11, 47, 75, 114, or 116 buses. Any of these buses can bring you comfortable to work with minimal hassle.

Parking Sandyford

Luas Park & Ride

You may park at any of the Luas Park & Ride after purchasing a ticket from the ticket machine on the platform. To save fuel, and the planet, we recommend driving to your nearest Luas stop and then riding the Luas to Sandyford. If you wish to just drive to Sandyford you can still park there. Luas park & ride is €2.00 for 4 hours or less, so if you stay 4-8 hours it would be €4.00

Beacon South Quarter

The Beacon South Quater has its own parking lot. This is a little bit more expensive than the Luas park & ride depending on how long you are staying. It is also a little bit closer to the office space, Sandyford. The first two hours are free. So these rates are perfect if you’re just nipping into the shop for some groceries, or going to the gym. After the two hours is up, the third-hour cost is €4. The fourth-hour cost is €6. Then the rest is free for 24 hours. 

Comparison from our Office Space Sandyford

If you are just popping in for less than two hours, you should definitely use the beacon parking. However, if you are starting from anywhere between an hour and a half to 8 hours the Luas Park & Ride is more cost-efficient. If you plan on staying a full day (over 8 hours) we would recommend the Beacon South Quater Parking in Sandyford.
