The Best Time to Visit Ireland with Tickets to Dublin
The best time to visit Dublin is during the city's summer months. From June to August, the temperatures warm up, and there's plenty to see and do. The only downside is that it's the most expensive time for airfare to Dublin. You'll need to book your trip well in advance to lock in lower prices, and you can expect large crowds at the city's top attractions. If you're travelling to Ireland on a budget, book your tickets to Dublin for travel between December and February. The chilly winter temperatures mean you'll easily find cheap flights to Dublin and excellent deals from the city's top hotels. September to November and March to May are the city's two shoulder seasons. The temperatures are mild, and you won't need to bundle up too much when you leave your hotel room to explore. However, if you're booking flights to Dublin to attend St. Patrick’s Day, airfare prices soar, and you'll need to book your accommodation months in advance.
Tips for First-Time Travellers to Dublin
Rent a car
The best way to get around Dublin is with a car. You can book a vehicle with Webjet or at Dublin Airport (DUB) once your flights arrive. Car rentals are quite affordable in Ireland compared to other countries in Europe. You can expect to pay around 10 to 20 EUR ($16 to 32 AUD) per day for unlimited miles.
Dublin uses the Euro
The Republic of Ireland uses the Euro, while Northern Ireland uses the pound sterling. You can easily withdraw cash from the airport once your flights to Dublin arrive. However, most places accept credit card, so you don't need to carry a lot of money on you.
Tipping in Dublin
Once you’ve booked your flights to Dublin, you’ll need to budget for tipping. It's common to tip 10% for good service at restaurants in Dublin. If you're enjoying a pint of Guinness at a pub, tipping is only expected if table service is provided.
Use Dublin's public transport system
If you don't want to rent a car for your trip to Dublin, you can use the city's extensive public transport system to get around. Once your flights to Dublin land, buy the Leap Visitor Card at the airport. The card includes transport to and from Dublin Airport (DUB) with the public buses, and you'll have unlimited access to the buses, DART trains and commuter rails for your entire trip.
Best Things To Do on Weekends
If you're only in Dublin for the weekend, add Trinity College to your sightseeing list. Queen Elizabeth I founded the university in 1592, and the 40-acre site is home to some of the city's greatest treasures. Some of the items on exhibition include the 9th-century Book of Kells, the Books of Durrow and an ancient Irish harp. Trinity's 18th-century Long Room that boasts 200,000 books is also one of the top reasons many people book return flights to Dublin
After you've satisfied your inner history buff, make your way down to Grafton Street. It’s Dublin's top shopping district and you'll find everything from busking musicians to luxury department stores, jewellers and boutiques.
If you want to escape the bustle of the city for a few hours, plan a trip to Phoenix Park. It's the largest urban park in Europe and stretches across 1,750 acres. Many people who book flights to Dublin are surprised to learn that Phoenix is home to hundreds of wild deer and it’s where you'll find the President of Ireland's official residence. You can also visit Ashtown Castle, a 17th-century tower house and the Farmleigh House that dates back to the 1800s.
Packing Tips for Ireland
Once you've confirmed your flights to Dublin, the most important thing to add to your packing list is a raincoat. Ireland's weather is unpredictable at best and rain is frequent no matter the season. Bring along one that can easily fit into your day back in case you need it.
Waterproof phone case
If the weather takes a turn for the worse, protect your phone by packing a waterproof case. It's usually an inexpensive item you can buy before your flights to Dublin, and you'll still be able to access the touchscreen and the camera.
Waterproof hiking shoes
For day trips from Dublin to nearby national parks, you'll need a pair of waterproof hiking shoes. There are tons of beautiful trails, and you don't want to miss out because you don't have the correct footwear. Before your flights to Dublin arrive, make sure you've worn them in to avoid blisters.
While exploring Dublin, you'll need to wear layers to beat the chill. Pack a pair of long-sleeved thermals and underwear to keep yourself warm. You can put a pair in your hand luggage and quickly change into your thermals once your flights to Dublin land at Dublin Airport (DUB.)
