Airlines that fly from Edinburgh to Dublin
Ireland's two top airlines, Aer Lingus and Ryanair, both fly this route.
Terminal Information – Departing
Edinburgh Airport only has one terminal. There are lots of great shops and places to eat, and ample seating for those who would rather just chill out with a newspaper. Shops include the usual suspects like WHSmith, Boots, Dixons Travel and World Duty Free as well as some high end brands like MAC Cosmetics and Kurt Geiger. If you're looking for something a bit different you can enjoy a mini-treatment at Aerospa or admire work by local artists at the Airport Gallery.
In terms of food and drink, there's something for every appetite. You can enjoy a slap up meal at The Gathering, grab a quick bite at EAT, or treat yourself to champagne and oysters at Thermidors Seafood Bar. Caffeine addicts can get their fix at Starbucks, Costa, Caffe Nero, AMT Coffee, and more.
There are two airport lounges available for flights to Dublin: the Aspire Lounge and No.1 Traveller. Both offer free and unlimited Wi-Fi as well as a selection of snacks and drinks. Prices are fairly reasonable and it's cheaper if you reserve in advance.
Terminal Information – Arriving
Aer Lingus flights usually land at Terminal 2, while Ryanair drop their passengers at Terminal 1. Taxi ranks are available outside both terminals, while the bus stops are shared. Just follow signs for public transport to reach the common area. The Aircoach 700 connects the airport to the city centre and has a journey time of roughly 35 minutes. Dublin Bus 747 is slightly cheaper however expect a slightly longer journey.

Ireland and the UK are both members of the Common Travel Area. You technically don't need your passport to visit Dublin, just some form of photographic ID. Some airlines specify that they only accept passports, however, so read the terms and conditions of your ticket carefully before heading to the airport.
