Hurricane Ophelia, one of the worst storms to hit Ireland in 50 years, is almost here. 

Many public transport services in Dublin have already been cancelled, while others have advised passengers to check throughout the day for updates. 

Here's all the information we have so far. 

Dublin Bus 

Dublin Bus will be running services this morning as normal until 10am. 

They have now suspended services after 10am and are hoping to resume at 7pm or whenever it is safe to do so. They have warned passengers of delays and disruption.

The Luas Red and Green Line services will be curtailed from 10am today.

There will be no tram service from about midday onwards. 

Normal service will resume tomorrow Tuesday morning at 5.30am. 

Irish Rail/DART

Most Irish Rail networks will be running today. 

The only services which have been cancelled are outside Dublin (Limerick Junction to Waterford and Limerick to Ballybrophy via Nenagh). 

There are speed restrictions in place on some routes which will result in delays of 15 to 30 minutes to the following trains to Dublin this morning: 

  • Cork to Dublin
  • Tralee to Cork/Dublin
  • Waterford to Dublin
  • Rosslare Europort to Dublin

There may be further speed restrictions and line closures throughout the day - keep an eye on their website

If you have bought a ticket for today but don't want to travel because of the storm, Irish Rail will refund you or let you change your train time for free. 

Dublin Airport 

Flights from Dublin Airport are operating "as normal" at the moment, but about 130 flights have already been cancelled. 

Aer Lingus, Ryanair, British Airways, Air France, CityJet, Emirates and KLM have all cancelled some services today.

Check your flight status before heading to the airport. 

Dublin Bikes 

Dublin Bike stations will be closed today.
