Airports in Ireland
When flying into Ireland, most travellers will be introduced to Dublin first. Located approximately six miles north of Ireland's capital city, Dublin Airport is the country's busiest airport, having served over 18 million passengers in 2011. Since its first flight in 1940, Dublin airport has expanded to include two terminals and service of over 40 carriers.
Transportation from Dublin Airport
Public bus and coach services are available from Dublin Airport into the city as well as to surrounding towns and other Irish cities. Dublin Bus runs most routes into Dublin, while Aircoach and Bus Ã‰ireann provide services to other cities around Ireland. No rail service is currently available from the airport. Taxis are available for travellers from the airport to destinations in and around Dublin. Car rental services are also available at the airport. If you are planning to drive while in Ireland, don't forget that cars here drive on the left side of the road; roads in smaller cities can be quite narrow and driving in Ireland can, at times, require nerves of steel.
Weather in Ireland
Ireland is a rich green country, thanks in most part to its regular and year-round rainfall. While some parts of the country experience more rain than others, you should pack a raincoat for your trip regardless of your destinations within the country. Temperatures in Ireland are mild, but weather is a common topic with the locals and you may experience many â€˜seasonsâ€™ during one day. Winter temperatures average between 4Â°C and 7Â°C; summer temperatures average around 15Â°C.
Attractions in Ireland
The amounts of things to do and see in Ireland are as endless and varied as country's rich history. Whether you are looking for historical, geographic or cultural destinations to visit while in Ireland, you will have more than enough to keep yourself entertained during your holiday. The Cliffs of Moher is one of the most-visited tourist attractions in the country, towering 250 yards over the Atlantic Ocean. Taking a bus to this attraction is ideal as parking is limited. You can also kiss the Blarney Stone at Blarney Castle in County Cork and be blessed with the great eloquence.
