Flight route options
You can fly non-stop from New York City to Dublin departing from any of the three airports in the greater New York City area. Flights from JFK are carried by Aer Lingus, United, American, British Airways, Finnair, Delta, KLM, and Air France. Air Canada connects LaGuardia to Dublin, and if you’re flying from Newark, you’ll be travelling with either United or Lufthansa. Depending on your flight route, the journey between New York and Dublin will last from 6.5 to 7 hours. Most transatlantic flights provide complimentary in-flight entertainment, meal service and at least one checked bag with your ticket, but it’s always best to check with your airline beforehand to confirm this.
Leaving New York
New York City’s three airports are well connected by public transport and equipped with short and long term parking options to accommodate high passenger levels. If you are driving, make sure to give yourself plenty of time to get to the airport, as traffic can be very slow during rush hour – your journey could be lengthened upwards towards an hour, so plan ahead, or take public transport to avoid last minute stress. JFK airport is connected by metro, bus, and train, while LaGuardia can be reached by bus and metro.
Newark Liberty International is also linked by bus and train, although as it’s located just inland in Newark, NJ make sure to check your available options and plan ahead.
Landing in Dublin
Dublin airport is connected by numerous bus lines not just to the heart of Dublin, but to other locations farther afield including coaches to Cork, Belfast, and Galway, so you can hop on a bus and get your adventure started. Taxis and car rentals are also available from the airport, and if it’s a car you’re looking for, why not check out Skyscanner’s car rental price comparison page to find out what your best price options are for cars around Dublin. In Ireland, as in the UK, cars drive on the opposite side of the road as in the US, so you drive on the left, and pass on the right. Cars are generally not automatic transmission, and the steering wheel is also located on the opposite side, on the right, so be prepared for an interesting driving experience!
If you are a U.S. citizen, you do not need a visa to visit Ireland as a tourist as long as you’re staying for less than 90 days. Your passport needs to be valid for the entire portion of your stay. Those travelling for work or study will need visas, so check the U.S. Department of State’s travel information for more details. If you’re planning to travel up to Northern Ireland, you’ll most likely need to show your passport at the border since Northern Ireland is a separate country from Ireland, and part of the United Kingdom.
Time Zone and Currency
Dublin is 5 hours ahead of New York. The currency used in Ireland is the Euro. Of course, if you’re planning to travel to Northern Ireland, keep in mind that it’s a separate country from Ireland, and part of the UK, so not only will you have to go through immigration at the border, but the currency in Northern Ireland is Pounds Sterling (GBP) just like the rest of the UK.
