Eire by air
A Nice-Dublin fight is more than just a connection between two cities: it is a bridge between two very different worlds. Leave a Latin land to discover the Celtic spirit, its traditions and its customs, which make the Dubliners much warmer than their climate. Rest assured, the arrival of the Silicon Valley Giants has changed nothing: the people still value simple pleasures, the joy of community, sharing a hurling match, or enjoying a beer in a cosy pub. The city is just as welcoming, charming and endearing as its people. So what are you waiting for? Book your Nice-Dublin flight ticket now and experience Eire.

Arriving at Dublin airport
Remember, the two Irish airlines don’t use the same terminal in Dublin. Passengers flying with the national airline Aer Lingus arrive at Terminal 2, but those flying with the low-cost airline Ryanair arrive at Terminal 1.
Located near to Swords, Dublin International Airport is situated 11 kilometres from the Irish capital. Whatever your chosen mode of transport, you will need about 30 minutes on average to get to your final destination.
Getting to the city centre
- By bus: using the city buses, you can choose between three routes that go to destinations all over Dublin: buses 16, 41 and 102. There are also two express connections: Airlink 747 goes directly to O’Connell Street, Dublin’s main thoroughfare, while Aircoach makes three stops: Drumcondra, O’Connell Street and Grafton Street. Both are inexpensive options.
- By taxi: prices are reasonable.
- By hiring a car from one of the seven major chains present on site. Remember that all of them, except Sixt, have a desk at Terminal 1 and at the Multi-Storey Car Park for Terminal 2.
What to do in
Despite growth rates envied by all major European capitals, Dublin remains a very human city. Due to its prosperity, its streets have become more animated, but the Dubliners have not really changed their lifestyle, remaining faithful to their Holy Trinity: the church, the stadium and the pub. This is not the place to come for glitz or design. It is a city of authenticity, conviviality and history: the history of the ordinary people, embodied in the bar of a century-old pub, or in Croke Park, the stadium of Gaelic sports and massive U2 concerts.

What is the best time of year to visit Dublin?
Dublin is hardly ideal for paddling and sunbathing. Nevertheless, it doesn’t matter what time of year you visit the capital of Ireland. Each season has its advantages. Flights and hotels are cheaper in winter, but there are still plenty of people on Grafton Street, the pedestrian street loved by shoppers, on O’Connell Street, the city’s main thoroughfare, and in the pubs of Temple Bar (especially during the Six Nations Championship). In early spring, the city jubilantly celebrates St Patrick’s Day. In May, June and early autumn, the sky is bluer, although the rainy climate means there’s always a chance of getting caught in a shower. However, it is in summer that Dublin is most popular with tourists, who make it an essential part of their tour of Ireland, as they set out to discover scenery from Game of Thrones and Star Wars.
