    Aer Arran

    Aer Arran do a lot of internal flights and sometimes if you do not want the hassle of getting a train and a bus and want to cut down on journey times they are sometimes worth using, especially if going from somewhere like Dublin to Donegal and vice versa!

    The trams are a relatively new addition to Dublins transport system as they were still testing them out when I visited back in 04. In 06 however, they were in full operation and we took one out Heuston Station when we were visiting some where out that way. There are only two lines [the one that goes passed O'Connell St and Heuston Station and another that begins at St Stephens Green] but its a quick and easy way of travelling if you are going somewhere on their routes. There was an automated ticket machine at each stop to buy your ticket from.

    Is a ship? Is a boat?........... Is Viking Splash Tour a very funny way to know the city of Dublin. I did not have enough time to take the tour but next time i?ll do it. The trip take 1 hour and 20 minutes and the guide explains the history of dublin. It?s a little expensive but i think it worth it. For kids is a funny way to know Dublin and they´ll enjoy and learn about this wonderful city.

    From Málaga airport there´s direct flights to Dublin airport with aer lingus and ryanair but I flew with Iberia because i did not find flights with the others companies before.

    With Iberia there is not direct flight to Dublin from Málaga you have to change at Madrid or Barcelona, i did it on Madrid, the flight was early in the morning. I took the flight from Málaga to Madrid at 6.35 in the morning and from Madrid to Dublin at 10.15 am and arrived to Dublin airport at 11.35 am. Coming back was at 18.50 from Dublin to Madrid and 23.50 pm from Madrid to Málaga. The staff was very friendly and the service was ok.

    I am actually really excited about the LUAS, the new light railway sytem in Dublin, I can say that because I dont have to live there anymore through all of the inconvinience whilst it is being built - hahahaha!!

    But when it is finished I think that it will fab, you will be able to travel from Tallaght in the south of the city right up to Abbey Street in the centre of the city, they are also running a line from St.Stephens Green to Sandyford and from Abbey Street to Connolly station.

    I think that some of the lines are due to open summer/autumn 2004?? If somebody can confirm that would be great!

    A horse ride with Skippy, we passed the horse and buggy and I wanted to pet the horse. The buggy driver said his name is Skippy, named after a movie horse. I guess he skips through Dublin.

    This is one way to see the city by horse and carraige. I loved the horses in Dublin.

    Problems, problems

    by Catspjm Written May 10, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Transportation would be one of Dublin’s primary problems. These days it is relatively cheap and easy to get there from most places in the world. The problems start once you arrive. Nearly all ‘transport things’ are ‘under review’
    The airport is being revamped but can properly handle half the volume f people that it currently tries to.
    The bus system is terrible. Infrequent and always running late due to the traffic
    Driving and traffic: Possibly worse than Rome!
    Taxis: Expensive and very difficult to get late at night
    Train is good, but no underground or metro system
    Best advice would be to stay centrally

    Fly Air India to London.
    During the high season it's the best deal. You can also pick up a cheap ticket from London to Dublin on RyanAir.
    One thing though, Air India flies into Heathrow airport and Ryan Air flies out of wither Gatwick or Stanstead. You can take a shuttle for about $12 to get to the other airport.

    by Wenasje Written Aug 25, 2002

    British Airways has flights from the UK to Dublin and you can fly with BA from almost anywhere. Then there is Aer Lingus who has international flights.

    Besides Aer Lingus, Ireland has another national carrier which is increddibly cheap: Ryanair.
    They're a discount carrier (like Easyjet in GB) and I once flew with them, one-way from Dublin to Belgium (Brussels, Charleroi) for only 10 Irish Pounds!
    I know they have flights between several cities in Great Britain and Dublin as well as Brussels-Dublin (and back of course..) For more flights and information go to: Ryanair

    When leaving from mainland Europe, you could go by bus with Eurolines, but this will take you 24 hours (compared to 1,5 hour flight) and I am not so confident in their services.
    There is nu subway (or tube) in Dublin. Public transport in Dublin is done mainly by bus. They're cute if u want to have that double-decker experience. Personnally, I prefer to go by foot. Dublin is not that big and at least you get to see everything that way.

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I travelled by Catamaran from Holyhead in the U.K. This took about 1.5 hrs, other ferry crossings are available from Liverpool.

    Dublin is served very well by air from the United Kingdom. Ryanair offers riddiculously cheap flights starting at about £9!! other operators are British Airways and Aer Lingus.

    Aer Lingus also serves most major european capital cities and the east and west coast of the US. Other good connections can be made via Manchester and London Heathrow to asian destinations.

    ***August offers from Leeds Bradford Airport to Dublin with Ryanair £2 return!!! plus tax total price £19.40....mad or what but not to be missed!!!***
    The DART train is a good way of getting around the city, also walking as the city is quite compact.

    If you aren't one for boats fly because the times i have been over on the ferry it's been rough as! Don't think it's possible to have a smooth ferry ride in the Irish Sea!
    Dublin is small enough to use footpower - walking is the best way to get around in my opinion, gives you a chance to see a lot more!

    I travelled to Dublin (from London) for a business trip recently. I figured it'd be easier if I had an airport chauffeur service there to collect me - which turned out to be the right decision, it made life so much easier. I'd really recommend choosing LFLCS. I'll leave the link here if anyone wants to know about it :)
