At Citylink, we recognise travel can be stressful, here are a few simple tips to help you along the way.
Travelling to Dublin Airport can often prove an anxious journey. Allow us here at Citylink to take care of the main guidelines you need to remember before embarking on your journey to Dublin Airport.
1. Give yourself enough time
Always allow yourself extra time when travelling to Dublin Airport, this cannot be said enough. It is impossible to predict what may come in your way or what the weather may be like, therefore allowing that extra time gives you that peace of mind. As a rule of thumb we advise 3 hours for transatlantic flights & 2 hours for all flights in Europe. That is to allow 3 hours for Terminal 2 and 2 hours for Terminal 1.
For your convenience, we have attached timetables of Galway-Dublin Airport & Limerick City-Dublin Airport.
2. Fast Track
Enjoy priority security with Dublin Airports dedicated Fast Track lane. Fast Track minimises any waiting time and gets you through Security in less than 10 minutes and also it gets you 10% off on Airport shopping. So if you’re tight on time or simply want more time to shop, grab a bite to eat or relax before your flight, the Fast Track service allows you make the best use of your airport travel time.
Fast Track access is priced between €5.95 – €7.99 and is dependent on date and time of travel. This may be worth your while especially if you plan to make a purchase in Duty Free.
How often do you get the reminder: Do not forget your passport! This happens far more often than you think on our eireagle and Citylink airport services. Keep a print and digital copy of your passport for further travel just in case.
4. Essential luggage tips
Don’t forget to pack an adaptor, battery charger, first aid kit, phrase book, insect repellent and sun cream if appropriate for your destination. If there is anything you’ve forgotten to include, don’t worry, you’ll find most travel essentials on sale at one of the many airport shops.
There are two ways to check in. You can check in online 24 hours ahead of time and go directly through security or you can check in manually at the airport at a self-service check-in kiosk or the old fashioned face to face check in option. Always check your luggage allowance which can vary airline to airline.
We hope the following tips can act as a guide to helping you plan your trip away with as much ease as possible. If you have any additional queries in relation to any of our airport services, do not hesitate to get in contact with our Citylink team. We also have a FAQ section to answer any questions you may have.
