How to get to the Helix…
The Helix is located in Dublin City University (DCU) which lies between Glasnevin and Whitehall, north of the city centre.
To get there from Dublin city centre, your best bet is to get Dublin bus numbers 4, 11, 11A, 11B, 13, 13A and 19A, which stop outside the DCU Ballymun entrance.
If you’re driving from the city centre take the N1/M1 towards the Airport until you get to the Whitehall Junction where you can turn left onto Collins Avenue. On this street you should see DCU on the left after the St. Aidans CBS.
If coming from outside Dublin then you can simply head for the M50, and take Ballymun exit (Junction 4). Head through Ballymun until you turn left onto Collins Avenue/Ballymun Road crossroads (approx 500 meters). At the second set of traffic lights turn right into the entrance for DCU.
