A line-up of London to Dublin flights is on standby to whisk you away to the pretty capital of the Republic of Ireland. Dublin is easily the most popular spot in the country, hosting around 5 million visitors a year. And it really lays on the charm, handing out castles, cathedrals, cobbled streets and cosy pubs beside the River Liffey. Even better, it takes just over an hour to fly from London to Dublin – that’s less time than travelling across London on the Tube.
It depends on which airport you fly from, but most London to Dublin flights are 1 hour 15 minutes long. And since Dublin is just a hop across the Irish Sea, it’s probably not worth looking for cheaper flights with stops – those journeys can last up to 15 hours.
Absolutely loads. Irish airlines like Ryanair and Aer Lingus offer a great London to Dublin flight schedule. You could also travel with British Airways, Cityjet, Air France, Flybe, Lufthansa and Norwegian.
Airlines fly from London to Dublin several times a day.
All the London airports offer flights to Dublin Airport.
Luton and Stansted offer the best cheap flights from London to Dublin, although Gatwick is close on their heels.
One more thing – remember to factor in the costs of travelling to the airport. Once you throw in train fares or fuel prices, you might find it’s cheaper to fly from an airport closer to home.
Dublin is no stranger to grand buildings. St Patrick’s Cathedral and Dublin Castle tower above the stone city, which straddles the River Liffey. Then there’s the Guinness Storehouse, where beer aficionados can sip the world-famous Irish stout or shop for souvenirs. For more in the way of Irish brews and bites, follow your ears to the pubs and clubs of Dublin’s Temple Bar district.
When it comes to weather, Dublin has a maritime climate, so it’s best to pack a jumper and brolly no matter which time of year you travel. That said, its winters are nice and mild – just like London – making it a great year-round holiday spot.
