Practical Information

You don’t need to bring your passport with you when you’re flying within the UK. Some form of official photographic ID is required, so bring your driving license instead.

There are printers in the check-in area of Dublin Airport, so there’s no need to panic if you forget to print your boarding pass. If you have a smartphone you can store your boarding card electronically on your phone, security can scan the e-barcode, and you don’t need to worry about paper at all.

We recommend giving yourself 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 some extra time.

What to expect in Edinburgh

Edinburgh is one of the most expensive cities in Scotland, being the capital. An average three course meal for two in Edinburgh will set you back from £38* however there are fast food outlets that make dining out a bit cheaper. The weather in Edinburgh is likely to be a few degrees cooler than Dublin being on the coast. You can blame the North Sea wind for that! There is more rain in Scotland than the rest of the UK and winters are generally chillier. However, it is still well worth visiting this architecturally, historically and culturally breath-taking city.
