Getting Here

Getting to Dublin is increasingly easy and popular with many airlines Etihad, Emirates and United Airlines opening new routes in the past few years.  With the emergence of low cost air-travel along with traditional carriers it has never been easier or less expensive to travel to Dublin.

Even though Ireland is an island, access is easy by sea. Passengers arriving in Dublin have a choice of two disembarkation points, depending on which ferry company they use. Dublin Port is very centrally located, only minutes from the city centre. Dun Laoghaire is situated to the south of the city, about 30minutes from the centre. There are excellent ferry connections daily from the UK and mainland Europe.

Visa Requirements:

In order to find out if you require a visa for entry to Ireland, whether by air, sea or land, please liaise with your local Irish Embassy or other diplomatic representative before you travel. An Irish visa is a certificate placed on your passport or travel document to indicate that you are authorised to land in the State subject to any other conditions of landing being fulfilled. This means that you will still be subject to immigration control at the point of entry to the State even if you have a visa.

In 2011 a Visa Waiver Programme was introduced, covering 16 countries whose national currently require a visa to visit Ireland. This Programme allows nationals of countries such as India, China and the Russian Federation, who have a short-term UK visa to come to Ireland without the need for a separate Irish visa. The Programme will end on 31 October 2016 and, since 1 November 2012, nationals of Bosnia and Herzegovina are included in the scheme. Click here to find out more about the Visa Waiver Programme.
