Travel Information

Dublin airport (DUB) is easily accessible, with flight connections to almost all major European and inter-continental cities. From either airport terminal, Dublin city centre can be reached either by bus or by taxi.


Taxis are readily available outside both terminal buildings. The usual fare for a journey to Dublin city centre is approx. 20 EUR. The trip can be shortened by asking the driver to take the Port Tunnel. At most times this will incur a 3 EUR toll charge. However, at peak times on weekdays (06:00-10:00 from airport to city; 1600-1900 from city to airport), the toll charge rises to 10 EUR.
