Dublin Airport and getting to the city centre
After touching down on your Dublin flight, the international airport has just two easy-to-navigate terminals. As well as car rental companies for travellers looking to make their own way around, you can reach central Dublin quickly and easily by hopping on the Airlink 747 bus, costing around €15 for an open-return ticket (€10 for a single). Although more expensive, taxis maybe provide a good deal for groups, with a journey to the city centre costing around €30 and lasting some 20 minutes.
Getting to know Dublin
Head to the Temple Bar district for sparkles as you dine and delight in the atmosphere of this sizzling neighbourhood, then head out to enjoy the area’s thrilling nightlife until the wee hours of the morning. After some well-earned rest, fill up on a hearty Irish breakfast, then head out to see a little more of Dublin’s magic. No visit is complete without a trip to the Guinness Storehouse to learn about Dublin’s iconic drink (and don’t worry – some delicious Irish stew will soak that pint right up). For a trip back in time, head to Kilmanhaim Gaol to learn the eye-opening history of Ireland and discover just how wondrous this place really is.
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.
