Terminal Information – Departing
Birmingham Airport has one terminal, but there are plenty of things to keep you and your party entertained. The kids will find have plenty of fun at the SkyZone Play Area while you pick up some bargains at the duty free shop, treat yourself to a manicure at Cloud Nails, or grab an interesting paperback at WHSmith. If you’re feeling peckish you can enjoy a quick sandwich from Pret a Manger, relax over a more substantial meal at Giraffe, or get your trip off to the right start at the Blanc & Noir champagne bar.
Birmingham Airport has two lounges, serving complementary food and drinks in a slightly more relaxing environment. The No.1 Lounge charges £22.50 for access, if you book in advance. Alternatively you can book into the Aspire Lounge, where prices start at £18.99. The Aspire Lounge is perfect for business travellers, with free Wi-Fi and a charging area. If you’re flying to Dublin on business you can get a bit of work done while you wait for your gate.
Terminal Information – Arriving
Aer Lingus flights usually land at Terminal 2 while Ryanair flights land at Terminal 1. Taxi ranks are available outside both terminals: you should expect to pay about €24 (about £17) for a taxi into Temple Bar in the centre of Dublin. If you prefer to take public transport, there’s a huge area for buses. This is between Terminals 1 and 2 and is easily reached from both.
The Republic of Ireland and the UK are part of a Common Travel Zone, so technically you don’t need your passport to travel to Dublin. You will, however, need an official piece of photographic ID (such as your driving license). Some airlines have stricter policies: for example Ryanair will only accept passports.
We recommend getting to the airport early: no later than one hour before your flight is scheduled to depart. You should leave extra time if you’re planning on checking in baggage, if you’re travelling at rush hour, or if your flight is during the school holidays.
What to expect in Dublin
Dublin is one of the more expensive European capital cities. If you’re used to the prices in Birmingham you might be in for a shock. A three course meal for two in an average restaurant will set you back €60 (just under £43), and when it’s your round at the bar you can expect to dig deep. Dublin does have a lot of excellent bars and restaurants, however, and there are plenty of bargains to be found. Our guide to visiting Dublin on a budget should help you to save a few quid.
