Getting to Dublin is a breeze. Dublin Airport is one of the busiest in Europe, with hundreds of daily flights providing a huge range of options to get here.
Direct flights are available from most major cities in the UK and continental Europe, several hubs in North America, and the Gulf cities of Dubai and Abu Dhabi. Connecting hubs hook up with further flights from all over the world, providing for easy access to the Irish capital.
Dublin Airport has two terminals. Terminal 1 is the arrival and departure point for airlines including Ryanair, Air France, Lufthansa and Norwegian. Terminal 2 is the hub for united Airlines, Emirates, Etihad, Delta, Aer Lingus and Air Canada.
Dublin Airport is 10km from the city. It’s located close to the M50 and M1 motorways, and a range of transport options connect directly with the city centre and suburbs. Aircoach, Airlink and Dublin Bus provide bus services from both terminals, and metered taxis are also readily available. There is currently no direct rail link between airport and city.
The capital’s iconic DART(Dublin Area Rapid Transit) system is a fast and frequent way of travelling in the city. The DART hugs the Irish Sea coast for much of its journey, making for one of the most scenic suburban rail routes in Europe.
DART is an electric rail system following the eastern coastline from Malahide and/or Howth in north Dublin, right through the city centre to southern suburbs like Blackrock, Dún Laoghaire, Dalkey and onwards to the coastal towns of Bray and Greystones in County Wicklow.
Trainsrun regularly both on and off-peak, are kitted out with free Wi-Fi and provide one of the speediest ways to transport you around the city, not to mention the hidden beaches, seaside villages and harbour restaurants secreted away along Dublin’s stunning coastline.
Dublin is also a central arrival and departure point for visitors looking to explore the rest of the country by rail. Cork, Galway, Limerick, Killarney, Belfast and Sligo are just some of the intercity routes served from the city’s two main stations: Heuston and Connolly.
