Terminal Information – Arriving
Aer Lingus flights usually land at Dublin’s Terminal 2, while Ryanair flights land in Terminal 1. Both terminals have taxi ranks.

Public transport is also available from the shared bus terminus, which is in between the two terminals and easy to reach on foot.
Ireland and the UK are part of the Common Travel Zone. You technically don’t need your passport to fly to Dublin; usually your driving license is fine. Some airlines (such as Ryanair) often ask you to bring your passport anyway. Check the terms of your ticket before arriving at the airport.
Try to arrive at the airport at least one hour before your flight is due to depart. Give yourself extra time if you’re planning on checking in some luggage, or if you’re travelling during busy periods such as school holidays or weekends.
What to expect in Dublin
Dublin is one of the more expensive European cities although it can still be enjoyed on a budget. You can expect to pay about the same for dinner in a restaurant as you would in Manchester, and a little more for drinks if you’re planning on enjoying Dublin’s famous nightlife. We’ve put together a guide to visiting Dublin on a budget, so you can make your cash go further. Dublin is also likely to be a few degrees colder than Manchester, so remember to pack a cosy jumper.
