On race days they do seems to provide a shuttle at an additional cost of €10 pp. it’s on the Leopardstown website under hotels they recommend. The beacon is only 1.2km from the course. Happy racing x

By taxi its about 25 minutes drive from the city centre you will pay on average €20 - €25 for a taxi, the luas tram is a good option as it stops only a few minutes walk from the hotel and costs only a couple of euro
