The season of Christmas parties and 'quiet pints' is upon us. 

However, even the most hilarious of nights can be ruined by a hefty taxi bill so here are the seasonal timetables for the various forms of Dublin public transport.

Darts, buses and the Luas are all running different schedules between 24 December and 2 January so check them to make sure you don't get caught out.
