How to get to Dublin
Getting to Dublin is increasingly easy and popular with many airlines, Etihad, Emirates and United Airlines, opening new routes in recent years. With the emergence of low cost air-travel, along with traditional carriers, it has never been easier or less expensive to travel to Dublin.
Even though Ireland is an island, access is easy by sea for both ferry and cruise. Passengers arriving in Dublin have a choice of two disembarkation points, depending on which ferry or cruise company is used. Dublin Port is centrally located, only minutes from the city centre.
The easiest way to get to the quays is Connolly Station for Custom House Quay (north side of the river) and Tara Street Station for Sir John Rogerson’s Quay (South side of the river). Both stations are a short walk from the quays.
There are excellent ferry connections daily from the UK and mainland Europe, while the capital also hosts in excess of 100 cruise liners annually which is of growing popularity for visitors to include Dublin on their travel itineraries.
Transport for Ireland is a good option for visitors looking to co-ordinate public transport in Ireland. The website brings together service information, directions and time estimates for bus, tram and rail transport in the city.
