Flights from Stansted to Dublin are short, with the trip across the Irish Sea taking less than an hour and a half. There are plenty of services that run throughout the day, so provided you book early enough there should be little problem in selecting your most convenient departure time.
Dublin is a lively city all year round, and remains an excellent place to visit come rain or shine. The airport lies around six miles north of Dublin’s centre, but is connected by road only. There are no trains running between the two, although bus services connect the airport to most rail stations in and around Dublin. Catch the Airlink to Heuston and Connolly stations, or to the city centre.
Dublin and its surrounding areas are served by a number of other buses including Dublin Bus and the Aircoach service, which stops at most of the city’s major hotels. Taxis operate from the forecourts located outside Terminals 1 and 2, where dispatchers are based that can help with providing information and assistance.
Car hire companies Avis, Budget, Dooley Car Rentals, Europcar and Hertz offer facilities at Terminal 2, while the same firms join Enterprise, Thrifty and Sixt in Terminal 1’s arrivals hall.
