Edinburgh is a magical city that has plenty to offer for tourists, thanks to its incredible history, beautiful buildings, fantastic food and cultural delights – all of which are guaranteed when you book your flights to Edinburgh. It’s home to not just one, but two UNESCO World Heritage Sites (the medieval Old Town and the Georgian New Town) and its world-renowned festivals will provide non-stop thrills, belly laughs and wows for an unforgettable experience.
Seeing as flights from Ireland are short, there are plenty of cheap Edinburgh flights on offer. The best time to visit is during the summer, around June-August, and if you book a few months in advance, you’re sure to find cheap tickets to Edinburgh. The most electrifying time of year to visit is during August, when huge sensational events such as the Edinburgh International Festival, The Fringe and the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo take place.
As Scotland’s busiest airport, you’ll find there are plenty of airlines providing flights to the nation’s capital. So whether it’s cheap flights to Edinburgh you’re after or something with a bit more ooh la la, you’re bound to find a deal that’s right for you. Return flights to Edinburgh are available from cities across Ireland, and are mainly provided by low-cost carriers such as Ryanair, EasyJet and Flybe. If you want to travel in style though, then why not indulge in the swoosh and flair of a British Airways or Aer Lingus flight. Best of all, you can reach the enchanting city of Edinburgh in no time at all, with a typical flight taking just over one hour.
Once your plane touches down, you’ll have plenty of options to choose from to take you to the city and/or your hotel. The direct tram to the city centre from the airport takes around half an hour, and costs around £6 (or £9 for a return ticket). There is also an airport bus service, Airlink 100, costing around £5 for a single or £8 for a return. Although it’s a tad cheaper, the added perks make it the best choice, as when you’re being whisked downtown you can enjoy the free WiFi whilst kicking back in one of the comfy leather seats, and there’s plenty of luggage space for peace of mind. Alternatively, why not take a taxi and be at your lodgings in no time at all, at a cost of around £20-£30.
The city of Edinburgh is the perfect place to explore on foot, especially around the charming cobbled alleys of the Old Town, which is watched over by the iconic and unforgettable Edinburgh Castle.
