Dubin is well served by air links from a large number of airports in the UK, Europe and the US. Several US carriers serve the US destinations, as well as the Irish airline Aer Lingus and many "national" carriers serve Dublin from Europe and the UK. There are in addition "low cost" airlines such as RyanAir and BMI Baby.
There are rail and bus links to Dublin also from almost all parts of Ireland, but locals will know about that. There are ferries as well from the UK and France.
There is information at about how to reach TCD once you are in Dublin. Or see below for a more condensed (possibly less accurate) version. If you want to know about parking near TCD, the answer is it is expensive.
