Travel information

Flight Information

Thanks to low-cost airlines the cost of flying has gone down over the years. From most countries in Europe you can fly to Ireland for 50 to 100 euro return. The most convenient airports to fly to in Ireland are Dublin Airport and Cork Airport.

 

A usefull website to arrange your flights to and from Ireland is www.skyscanner.com. It is also easy to check which airport in your area you can fly from and where in Ireland you can fly to. On this website you can type in the country you are flying from and type “Ireland” as the country you are flying to.  This way you get an overview of the cheapest flights and you also automatically see which airports in your area offer direct flights to Ireland!

 

A low cost airline that usually offers the cheapest flights is www.ryanair.com

 

Tips:

  • Flying on weekdays is often a bit cheaper than weekends

  • Use the full weight allowance of your hand luggage, this is usually 10 kg. Checked luggage is usually 15-20 kg, so you can bring 25-30 kg altogether! It is better to use sports bags than suitcases. Suitcases are heavier, so you can not bring as much luggage.

  • Rod hire is available, this will save you the cost and hassle of bringing a rod tube on the plane.
