IBM Technology Campus in Damastown Industrial Park
Innovation Centre , IIC Boardroom
Please Note: The IBM Technology campus is about 8 miles from the city centre and 12 miles from Dublin airport. If you are travelling by taxi, please be sure to emphasise to the taxi driver that it is the IBM Damastown site not IBM Ballycoolin. Taxi drivers seem more familiar with the IBM Ballycoolin site which is nearby and many visitors have been brought there in error by taxi drivers.
If driving from Dublin City Centre
Follow signs for Navan - this will bring you along the N3.
The campus is located off the N3 approx. 3 miles beyond the junction with the M50. See "When approaching by car on the N3 from Dublin" below for more detailed instructions.
If coming by car from Dublin Airport
Initially follow the signs for M1 south towards the city centre.
The first exit from the M1 will be the junction with the M50.
Take this exit and go on to the M50 south until you reach the exit marked N3 / Navan.
After coming off the exit, take the third turn off the roundabout - follow signs for N3 / Navan.
Then continue by following the "When approaching by car on the N3 from Dublin" directions below.
When approaching by car on the N3 from Dublin:
Go past the 2 exits for the Blanchardstown Centre. Take the next exit which will be signed for "Clonee / Damastown Industrial Estate".
At the top of the exit ramp turn right and cross over the main road. Proceed straight through one set of lights and a roundabout and you will come to the IBM security gate.
Immediately after the IBM security gate you will come to a roundabout, continue straight through.
At the next roundabout take a left. Building 6 will be immediately on your right. There is a car park to the left of the main entrance.
When travelling via public transport
The best way to get to the IBM Dublin Technology Campus by public transport is by using the 38 or 38A bus service. These services both make two stops within the campus, the terminus is the second stop and this is directly outside building 6 which is home to the IBM Innovation Centre. Both services operate from Hawkins Street in the city centre. The 38A service is more rapid because it makes fewer stops and by-passes Castleknock. Be careful not to take the 38B or 38C service, neither of these comes the full way to the IBM
