Travelling from Dublin Airport

Dublin airport (DUB) is easily accessible, with flight connections with almost all major European and inter-continental cities. 

Note for those in the US: If your flight from Dublin airport is a direct flight to any city in the US, Dublin airport offers a US Preclearance facility. This means that passengers arriving in the US are treated as domestic arrivals, allowing them to avoid immigration queues upon arrival. More info: 


From the airport terminals, Dublin city centre can be reached either by bus or by taxi.

Travelling from Dublin Airport by Taxi

Taxis are readily available outside both terminal buildings. A taxi will take about 20-30 minutes (depending on traffic). The usual fare for a journey to Dublin city centre is approx. 25€. The trip can be shortened by asking the driver to take the Port Tunnel. At most times this will incur a 5€ toll charge, approximately.
