Cheap Tickets to Dublin - Compare Cheap Flights to Dublin

Some come to Ireland at the insistent call of history and heritage. Some visit for the rugged landscape and the ancient cultural legacy of its druids, artists and poets, while others are looking for a burst of the famous Irish spirit: ceol agus craic, the music and fellowship of friends around the roaring peat fire of an old pub. Whatever brings you to Ireland, there’s one thing you’re sure to find: an expansive welcome from some of the friendliest people on earth.

Flights to Dublin Airport (DUB)

Aerfort Bhaile Átha Cliath is its Irish name, but everyone in Dublin just calls it “The Airport.” It’s the country’s largest airport, moving more than 20 million people through its gates each year. The national airline, Aer Lingus, has its headquarters here, along with the budget airline Ryanair, which makes a specialty of offering affordable short-haul flights to many top European cities. All of the US legacy airlines offer flights to Dublin Airport from major city hubs and the airport serves more than 170 routes.

Terminal 1 serves most domestic, regional, and short-haul passengers, while the shiny new Terminal 2 is devoted to major international routes, and incorporates a full US Border preclearance facility. Dozens of coaches, shuttles, and city bus services offer direct routes into the city center. Taxis and limos are also available, as well as vehicles from a number of car rental companies: just remember that they drive on the left here!

What to do in Dublin

The historic Dublin city center remains compact and eminently walkable. If your feet get sore, the public transport system is robust and affordable. Dublin packs a huge amount of history, culture, and fun into every corner of its cobblestone streets.

Clap on some horned headgear and splash into Dublin’s surprising Viking heritage with one of the crazy amphibious boat tours. The Leprechaun Museum is small, but full of legend, folklore, and fun. Traipse down Grafton Street, admiring the many buskers and the high-end shopping mingled with street vendors selling flowers. The majestic Trinity College is worth a tour and is home to the ancient Book of Kells.

Advice to Tourists Visiting Dublin

The weather in Ireland is famously wet, but when the sun does shine, so does Dublin. June through August are the city’s brightest, but September often has a store of sunshine in reserve. English and Irish are the official languages: you’ll see bilingual signs and may hear a few phrases of Irish here and there. The currency is the euro. Hotels in Dublin book up fast.
