Possibly the easiest was to get to Orlagh is by LUAS, Dublin’s tram system. Trams are very frequent and well signposted.
Take the LUAS Red line from anywhere in the city centre, to the terminus at Tallaght.
Disembark and get a taxi, which will take a further 10 mins to get to Orlagh.
The postcode is D16 VF38 and make sure the taxi goes past the gate and all the way to the house, as otherwise you have a long walk up the driveway!
