From San Francisco to Dublin

Flying from San Francisco to Dublin has never been more affordable than with help from Orbitz.com. Known for Alcatraz, the Golden Gate Bridge and fog, residents of San Francisco won't have a completely foreign experience. Rain is plentiful in Ireland's capital city, and temperatures-while colder than California by about 15 degrees on average-are still moderate.

Leaving San Francisco

San Francisco International Airport is serviced by more than 30 airlines, including JetBlue, Delta and British Airways. It's accessible by BART rapid rail, as well as by SamTrans city buses. The typical taxi ride from downtown to the airport costs roughly $37.

Parking at the airport costs $18 for long-term lots, $28 per day for daily lots, and $2 per 20 minutes, with a maximum charge of $36 in short-term lots and up to $45 per day for valet. Free charging is available for electric cars and plug-in hybrids. You can also bike to the airport, although access is restricted to North and South McDonnell Roads. Bikes can be parked for free for 14 days, but they must be registered if staying on airport property for more than 24 hours.

Dozens of restaurants, cafes and snack counters can be found among the airport's four terminals. Popular options are Peet's Coffee & Tea and Lori's Diner. Travelers can catch a taste of San Francisco dining before they leave with options like Tomokazu.

Taking a Trip to Ireland

Many Americans make the trip to Ireland to explore their families' cultural and historical routes. There's plenty to explore in Dublin. Trinity College and Library in Dublin dates back to the 1500s, and it houses many rare, ancient texts. Travelers can also visit St. Patrick's Cathedral, the largest church in Ireland.

Flying into Dublin

Five car rental companies can be found at the Dublin Airport, with another three providing rentals with advance reservations. Orbitz.com can help you secure deals in advance with Budget, Avis, Hertz, Dollar, Payless, Thrifty and Sixt. You can also take the Dublin Bus downtown for $7.35 or catch a taxi for 21.95.

Dublin temperatures are moderate throughout the year, with winter temps rarely dropping below 35°F and summer temps settling in the upper 60s. Rain is fairly consistent throughout the year. July and August are the best times to visit when you're looking to spend a lot of time at the beach, although attractions can be crowded. Otherwise, anytime between April and October should ensure the most attractions are open.

While Dublin weather can be rainy, the area offers many outdoor treats. One of its most popular attractions is Phoenix Park. The world's largest enclosed public park houses the Dublin Zoo, Ashtown Castle and the house of the Irish President. Dublin has a surprising stretch of beaches, including popular Sandycove and Claremont. It's also overflowing with culturally rich, historical sites, including castles, churches and monuments. Throw in a handful of bohemian pubs and art houses, and you've got Dublin in the palm of your hand.

Heading Home from Dublin

After a hearty and satisfying Irish vacation, the return trip home can be relaxing. If traveling in the off-season, you're sure to enjoy the return of the sun. For those looking to return quickly for a repeat, Orbitz.com can help save money on flights from San Francisco to Dublin, as well as on lodging and activities during your stay.
