DUBLIN INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT

Dublin Ireland Airport - Dublin airport is situated about six miles north of Dublin City right beside the M50 and M1 motorways. You can get to and from the airport by bus, taxi, or car and there is the option of getting a shuttle bus from the airport to nearby train stations for the Dart and other train services (particularly to Belfast). Several buses and coaches operate regularly from outside the airport terminal to and from Dublin city centre.

 
Travel Guide
 

All the main Dublin Car Hire Companies operate desks or agents in one section of the Arrivals building and there is also a desk for the collection of pre booked cars. Travelling by road to and from the airport is easy as it’s well signposted and you can link up to routes to all parts of Ireland. When leaving the airport make sure you know the N or M number of the road you want. The journey to the city centre by car will take about thirty minutes during the daytime. There’s a short term car park allowing for stays of up to twenty-four hours costing over €20 per twenty four hours but there is a long term car park at a cheaper rate with a free shuttle bus service from the terminal building. Car hire companies have parking facilities.

The bus services have greatly improved and now the Aer Coach, a blue coloured bus, serves several routes to Dublin centre and to suburbs beyond mananging to cover many of the main Dublin routes. Although this costs €7 an even cheaper option is the Dublin bus services to many parts of the city tho these are slower as they stop at more stops on the way.

Taxis are also available at the terminal building and a taxi to the centre of Dublin will cost you in the region of €20-25.

Dublin Airport has a range of catering facilities and most of these are on the mezzanine and there are other cafes and bars on both landside and airside. There are quite a number of shops and on airside you have the “Street” - literally a street of shops many of which are vat free. For those travelling from outside the EU there are also tax free retail shops, drinks and tobacco. Along with a bank, there are several bureau de change outlets and many ATM machines.

In the Arrivals hall is a Dublin Tourism Office with lots of information and they can also help you with accommodation and maps.
