Dublin insider flight tips
- You can usually fly from Australia to Dublin without stopping more than once, especially if you can be flexible with your travel dates. Etihad flies via Abu Dhabi (AUH) from Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Perth. Emirates and Qantas both fly via Dubai (DXB) from Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth and Adelaide.
- Dublin is the home base for budget airline, Ryanair, which offers some ridiculously low fares for flights within Europe. Ryanair can get you to Dublin from major cities such as London (Gatwick and Stansted airports), Amsterdam, Paris and Athens. It is worth comparing flights on these routes to flying straight into Dublin from Australia. Check that your layover times give you long enough to get your connecting flight, especially if you need to change terminals or even airports, which may be the case in some major European cities. Be aware of any differing luggage restrictions when flying with multiple airlines too.
- Australian travellers traditionally like to break up the trip to Europe with a short stay in Hong Kong or Singapore. Thanks to so many competing routes nowadays, you can really take your pick of where to layover. In fact, if you are willing to stop more than once, then the possibilities are endless.
How to get around Dublin from the airport
Dublin Airport (DUB) is relatively small with only two terminals, making it nice and easy to navigate. It is well-equipped and only 12 kilometres from the city. A few companies run private airport shuttles that will get you to the centre of Dublin and nearby train stations. A cheaper option is to take the public bus (route 16) which takes about an hour to the centre of Dublin. There are also several coach services operating to major cities in the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland, such as Cork, Galway and Belfast. Regardless of where you want to go in Ireland, you can organise transport. All of these services are detailed on the Dublin Airport’s official website along with an integrated booking system.
Taxis are readily available and take about 30 minutes to the centre of Dublin. Driving is not necessary in Dublin itself but ideal for exploring the rest of Ireland. You can find major car rental agencies in the Terminal 1 Arrivals Hall and in the Terminal 2 car park.
