Flights to Dublin
The Dublin Airport (DUB) services most flights to Dublin and Ireland in general, and is the headquarters for Irish flag carrier Aer Lingus and Europe's largest low-cost carrier Ryanair, as well as regionals such as Aer Arann and CityJet. Terminal 1 ("The Loop") at DUB has a variety of specialty restaurants and stores, ranging from McDonald's to CalvinKlein Underwear and the Guiness Store, a great choice for souvenir shopping before or after your Dublin flight. DUB is about 5 milesnorth of Dublin, so arranging a taxi or catching a Dublin Bus or AirLink shuttle is easy and travel to Dublin is quick and painless-there are a dozen bus services which deliver you directly to your Dublin flight terminal or hotel. There are no direct rail services to the airport, so passengers should arrange for taxi or bus beforehand. Layovers or connecting Dublin flights might fly into Cork Airport or Shannon Airport, both operated by the Dublin Airport Authority, based at DUB.
Ireland's beautiful green landscape is due to its healthy rainfall, but it's in no way bothersome on your flight to Dublin. Some travelers might enjoy the misty mornings, sipping tea by the window. Dublin, located on the east coast along the Irish Sea (across from the UK), enjoys better weather than most of the island, with mild average temperatures all year long. You'd be wise to bring some rain-gear and waterproof boots on your flight to Dublin, especially if you intend to hike or wander about on foot. The very best weather occurs in the middle of summer, with quite a bit of sun, but always the potential of rain.
Dublin When to Go
A bit of breaking news: It rains in Ireland. Often. It's the price of seeing rainbows over the country's supernaturally green hills. In the spring, summer, and early fall, expect a chance of rain every day. Yet also expect outbreaks of gorgeous sunlight each day, too.
Rain on the island is a thesaurus entry brought to life, appearing in subtle gradations from soft mist to light lashings. Just as Irish personalities tend to be less brash and extreme than American ones, Irish rain tends to be less brash and extreme, too. You'll almost never see hard sheets of torrential downpours in Ireland as you might in many parts of North America (except during the winter or along Ireland's western coastline). So don't be put off by the talk of wet weather, because it is less disruptive than you might think.
Our advice: No matter when you visit, always pack an umbrella, a rain-resistant windbreaker jacket, and many layers of clothing, which you can change as conditions warrant.
Summer is peak tourist season in Dublin. Daytime highs are in the high 60s and low 70s, making it a great time to visit. It’s also when the prices of flights and hotels are at their highest. But people are willing to pay for the hope of good weather.
May and September make for fine shoulder seasons because they are historically the driest months, and it stays light from 6 a.m. until 10 p.m., with temperatures averaging in the low 60s during the day. Shoulder-season lodging prices also tend to be discounted by about 20 percent off summer highs.
Winter usually produces bleak skies, strong winds, and chilly temperatures down to the freezing point. Many bed-and-breakfasts are closed this time of year.
Festivals and holidays happen year-round. In March, St. Patrick's Day is the obvious choice, with a parade of bands and floats that winds its way down O’Connell Street and around the entrance to Trinity College. Parade-goers are encouraged to wear costumes as well.
