Dublin, the capital city of the Republic of Ireland, which is considered to be the westernmost country of the European continent and the independent country of the Irish island, is referred to as the "double river city" by the locals. Dublin, the cultural, commercial and political center of the country, is the fifth city that hosts the largest tourist population on the European continent. There is also an international airport in the north of the city, which welcomes a large number of visitors thanks to its unique features as well as being a commercial city. There are many transportation alternatives between the airport and the city.
Dublin, the capital of the Republic of Ireland, which left the United Kingdom in 1921, is also the leading port city in the country. The train and metro lines departing from the ports also offer you a chance to transfer to the North Metro, which connects the city to the airport. Parnell Square and O'Connell / Abbey St. stations of the metro line provide transportation to the airport from the city center, while the Drumcondra Station offers transfer option to the airport from the stations coming from the ports.
Parnell Square in the city center consists of a large park in the middle and the surrounding roads. There are buses belonging to Air Link and Air Coach Companies, which are called North, South, East and West buses that directly go to the airport. It takes half an hour to get to the airport by buses that you can take by paying 6 Euros.
It is possible to reach the airport by buses 16, 16C, 33, 41, 41C and 747 departing from Parnell Square and O’Connell road, which is also the busiest street of the city and passes through the Liffey River dividing the city into two. The city buses 16 and 747 are the shortest routes to the airport.
If you want to get to the airport from Dublin city center by car, you need to head to the Dublin Port turnout through Parnell Square and then take the Swords Road. You can arrive at Dublin Airport, which has a car park with 7950 car capacity, in about 20 minutes. One potential problem you may experience while driving is that the traffic flows on the left-hand side, the reverse direction compared to the traffic in Turkey.
Dublin Airport, which is the most important airport in Ireland along with Belfast Airport, welcomes more than 20 million passengers a year. There are many restaurants, bars, and cafés for passengers and their visitors to enjoy their time at the airport.
