Practical Information

You do not need your passport with you when you’re flying within the UK but some form of identification is required. If you have a smartphone you can store your boarding card electronically on your phone. Security can scan the e-barcode so you don’t need to worry about paper at all.

We recommend leaving plenty of time at the airport, so try not to arrive any later than one hour before your flight is due to depart. Queues at security are longer at weekends and during school holidays, so it’s worth giving yourself extra time.

What to expect in Dublin

The capital of the Emerald Isle is a lively and historic city where ancient traditions meet modern living. Georgian, Medieval and contemporary architecture fill the streets that once were home to literary greats such as Yeats, Beckett and Joyce. Take a literary tour to explore their favourite haunts or visit majestic Trinity College, the oldest university in Ireland to see the famous Book of Kells. Shop for designer and high street labels in Victorian shopping arcades or visit one of the city’s many museums or galleries for an inspiring dose of art. Of course, the nightlife in Dublin is legendary, particularly in the pubs of Temple Bar that throng with locals as night falls. Those with a taste for the back stuff will find it in every ale house while those who want to explore its origins can take a tour of the Guinness Storehouse. Outdoor food markets show off the country’s fabulously fresh produce.

Dublin makes a great weekend break all year round although from May to August the sun is more likely to make an appearance in time for the city’s many outdoor festivals. November to January are the coldest months but with fewer tourists, this is a peaceful time to visit. Winters also mean cosy pubs with roaring fires and hearty local cooking.

Dublin is not a cheap city to visit although there are plenty of options for accommodation outside the city centre that are easier on the wallet. Walking and exploring the city centre and beautiful surrounding countryside is always free and there are many options for places to eat. Opt for those away from the centre of the city and you will save a few pennies. A pint costs from €4* while a dinner for two can be found from €20*.
