Getting around the airport

DUB

Dublin Airport is a busy but efficient airport lying 10km north of the city centre. It has two terminals in separate buildings, both with plenty of eating, drinking and shopping options:

  • Terminal 1: The older terminal, recently renovated, hosting mainly short-haul flights, including all Ryanair flights.
  • Terminal 2: A newer, more modern building (shaped like a plane wing), with a large landside food court. It services all Aer Lingus flights and most long-haul flights. You'll find the handy US preclearance facility here.

There is a walkway between terminals.

Tip: When travelling with children, you can skip the queues going into security by using the 'assistance' lane.

Getting into Dublin

By Aircoach is best

There's no train into the city centre (though there's one planned for 2026), but that really doesn't matter because the coach service is excellent, and offers free Wi-Fi.

Bus

The Dublin Aircoach runs 24 hours a day, leaving every 15 minutes from 03:25-23:55 (every 30 minutes at night). Journey time is around 30 minutes, but varies depending on traffic. Get off at O'Connell Street or Grafton Street for the city centre. The Aircoach also goes to Cork and Belfast if you're travelling further afield.

Tip: Buy your ticket online before you arrive for a discounted fare and quicker boarding.

Cost: EUR 7 one-way/EUR 12 return (children EUR 4/EUR 2)
Buying tickets: From Aircoach staff outside the buses, on the bus or onlineLocation: Stops at Terminal 1 (outside Arrivals, exit baggage claim, turn left and turn left as you leave the building) and Terminal 2 (outside Departures, exit baggage claim, follow the coach signs, cross the footbridge and go down the escalator and turn left)

Taxi

It's pricier to get a taxi, but if you share one between four, you may save money. You may also save time. Prices will depend on the time of day and the amount of traffic. Journey time is around 30 minutes. Official Dublin taxis are all different models of car, but all have a yellow TAXI sign on the roof.

Cost: EUR 25-30
Location: 
Ranks outside Terminals 1 and 2

Faster entry into the US

Preclearance in Ireland

The United States Customs and Border Protection (USCBP) facility in Dublin Airport is a very useful, purpose-built facility that allows US-bound passengers to undertake all immigration, customs and agriculture inspections at Dublin before departure. The only other airport to offer this facility is Shannon Airport, also in Ireland.

Having cleared USCBP, passengers arriving in the US are treated as domestic arrivals, which allows for a faster processing through their arrival airport in the United States, including the checking through of any baggage to the traveller’s final destination.

Location: Terminal 2
