The capital and largest city in Ireland, Dublin is famous for its rolling hillsides and panoramic views. These features, along with the city’s vibrant nightlife scene, make Dublin a hugely popular tourist destination for both Irish tourists and foreign visitors alike.

Routinely described as one of the friendliest cities in Europe, there is an undoubted warmth to the city and it is also one of Europe’s most ‘revisited’ cities among previous tourists.

With its stunning architecture, vast coastlines and picturesque views, Dublin caters to all age groups and is the perfect family vacation destination. It is advisable to visit the city during the summer months, when temperatures tend to remain more consistently warm and dry than during other times of the year.

Arriving Dublin Airport

Serving the Irish city of Dublin, Dublin Airport is located just 5km north of the city centre and taxi cabs from the airport to downtown Dublin will generally cost you around $7-$11 for the journey.

Dublin Airport is easily the largest of Ireland’s airports and a large volume of tourist and business class traffic pass through its terminals on a daily basis.

Despite this, airport processes tend to move fairly quickly and car rental control is amongst the best in Ireland. It is also commonly remarked that the Dublin airport staff are some of the friendliest and most helpful throughout Europe.

With a decent selection of shops and restaurants available, it is still advisable to reach your accommodation before pursuing these options, based on the extremely close proximity of the airport to the city centre.

Driving In Dublin

While Dublin provides outstanding scenery and well-designed major road networks, traffic levels in the city can result in frustratingly long waits, particularly at peak traffic hours, when the city can remain in gridlock for hours.

It is therefore advisable to park your car on the outskirts of the city centre, and to take the train or bus into Dublin. The public transport system is impressive, and designated bus lanes mean you will not be caught up in the city centre traffic.

Driving becomes more enjoyable in the Irish countryside, and the green, rolling hills of Dublin provide an extremely picturesque landscape to your driving experience.
