Surface transport to Dublin

by rflavel

My wife and I will visit Edinburgh in August. We will then travel to Dublin.
Are there feasable surface options? Bus/train & ferry? From Glasgow? We have no desire to spend the entire day and travel via Belfast. Thanks.

You will spend the entire day travelling if you do not fly. And flying will quite probably be much cheaper. However.......

It seems you do not wish to take the train from Edinburgh to Stranraer (the relevant port) then the ferry to Belfast and train/bus onward to Dublin.

The Dublin alternative to flying is to get a train to Holyhead, and then take the ferry to Dublin/Dun Laoghaire. Train times and fares on www.nationalrail.co.uk (takes 6+ hours), 81.50GBP single. Ferry times/fares on http://www.directferries.co.uk/.

Personally, I'd fly from Edinburgh. www.ryanair.com, www.aerlingus.com

You can travel by ferry from Liverpool too, but the ferry takes 8 hours.

The fast ferries go from Holyhead.

You could take the 1610 train from Glasgow to Liverpool (via Preston), Advance fares from £30 for the pair of you. Best fares can generally be had by booking 4-6 weeks in advance.

Then get an 2200 overnight ferry with a 2 berth cabin from Birkenhead on Norfolkline ferries, costs from £80. Add in a taxi from Liverpool to Birkenhead and the trip could come in at under £120. This gets you into Dublin at 0515 but you can stay onboard for breakfast before heading on into town.

There is a morning ferry that leaves at 1000 but you could not get to Birkenhead in time to catch it if you were leaving from Glasgow.

Hi,
If it was me I would fly, it will take about an hour and be cheaper than any other route. There are several airlines go from edinburgh/glasgoe/prestwick to dublin.

Cheers
Doug

Re: Surface transport to Dublin

by Craigellachie

Yes, I would fly too. Ryanair flies four times a day from Edinburgh to Dublin and Aer Lingus also flies daily.

Surface is bound to take all day because of the distance involved. Via Larne and/or Belfast is not a detour, it's the sensible route if you're going surface

In addition to the options above there is also a ferry to Belfast from Troon.

Travel Tips for Edinburgh

see the castle, Holyrood...

by mainer50

see the castle, Holyrood Palace, the Royal Mile and the neighborhood around it. Then, see Prince's Street and all the shops on the streets parallel to it. Near Greyfriar's Bobby there is a Mexican Restauraunt called the Haugh House that is very good. Be sure to wear comfortable shoes as the streets and sidewalks are cobblestone and not smooth. Travelling around the city with my daughter who was to be married in a few days. My future son-in-law showing us the shop where he works. Going to restaurants and shops away from the main tourist areas and staying in a bed and breakfast.

Remembrance Sunday

by evaanna

If you happen to be in Edinburgh on the Sunday nearest 11 November, go to High Street (part of the Royal Mile) before 10 a.m. to see the laying of the wreathes to commemmorate those who were killed in the First and Second World Wars and later conflicts. It's a moving but also a picturesque spectacle, and it has its funny moments too. At the end of the ceremony, the Scots Guards present arms, long knives in this case, (which must have a name I am sure) as if aiming them at the onlookers. You should see people's terrified faces. I hope I haven't spoilt that moment for you.
For a few days before Remembrance Sunday, many people wear red poppies on their lapels and there is a lot of street bagpipe music around on that day.

Daytrip to Culross - most charming town

by trvlrtom

Entering the town of Culross is like finding yourself in a 16th century time capsule. It seems to be frozen in time. Thanks to being bypassed by modern times and having received close attention from the National Trust for Scotland, Culross gives the visitor a unique experience of what it was like many generations ago. This is no Hollywood or Disneyesque recreation; it's the real thing. If you are at all interested in architecture, history, village life, or simply could benefit from an afternoon in a leisure paced town away from the crowds, make Culross a destination.

12 miles west of the Forth Road Bridge away from Edinbugh.
