  • Flight connection
    Mar 26, 2017
    Hi guys, I am from Phakistan and we arent required to have a transit visa in Ireland and I have a UK business visa. I will arrive in Dublin from France and then get a connection flight to UK, since my arrival and departure are usually from the 200's gate I'd like to know if I will have to pass through passport control? If so would I have problems to board my flight to UK ? Thanks a lot


    You will go through passport control in Ireland since there are no border controls on flights between Ireland and the UK. Your valid UK entry visa is sufficient for entry into Ireland.


    Thanks very much.


  • Layover time
    Mar 3, 2017
    I will buy tickets from Aer Lingus one from BDL to DUB and the next one from DUB to MAD and the layover is only 1 hour, is this enough time? How long is the T2 section?


    Since you are not entering the Schengen Area all you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You should have enough time.


  • In Transit From NYC
    Nov 13, 2016
    I will be flying from NYC to Berlin. I must catch a connecting flight in DUB. I arrive at Terminal 2. All my flights are on Aer Lingus. Will I have to go through security, again, before I board my flight in DUB to Berlin?


    You should not have to go through security.


  • Will this work?

    Hi, I am going from BDL - DUB and land at 5:20am. Will an 1hr and 20min be enough to recheck bags to get to my Rome flight?


    If both flights are on Aer Lingus you don't have to do anything with your bags in Dublin. If you purchased a separate ticket to Rome, then no I don't think that's enough time.

    I am arriving from the US at terminal 2 and want to meet someone arriving from London an hour or so later. Is there a good meeting spot to suggest. I believe we both are arriving at Terminal 2?


  • LHR to DUB to EDI
    Aug 13, 2016
    Hi. I am planning an anniversary trip for my parents the first week of September. They will fly from LHR to DUB on United Airlines (Operated by Aer Lingus) with an arrival in Dublin at 11:15 a.m. They will then have a 3 hr. 20 m. layover in Dublin before they catch their final flight to Edinburgh that leaves at 2:35 PM on Aer Lingus (this flight is booked separately on it's own ticket). Is that enough time to make the connection? Do they need to plan on picking up their luggage, re-checking it, going through security, customs and passport control before catching the flight to Edinburgh? Also, do you know which terminal they will arrive in and which terminal they will depart from? Any help, advice or clarification would be appreciated!


    That should be enough time. Yes, they will have to do all that. They should have enough time. Both flights are in Terminal 2.


  • Terminal 1 to Terminal 2
    Aug 5, 2016
    I'm meeting a friend in DUB, I'm coming in to Terminal 1, they are coming in to Terminal 2. Is there a connector between the Terminals without going through security, customs, etc...? We are landing within 30 minutes of each other.


  • Connection Time
    Jul 13, 2016
    I'm arriving from the US around 8:15am on a Wednesday and wonder if I will have enough time to make a Ryanair connection to MAN that departs at 10:35am.


    I think that would be barely enough time.


    I think that would be barely enough time.


  • Very tight connection in Dublin
    Jun 2, 2016
    I will be arriving at Dublin airport from New York at 6:50 and my connecting flight departs at 8:20. I will have to switch airlines from American Airlines to Ryanair, and recheck my luggage. Is there anything I can do to speed the process up and not miss my flight?


    That's not realistically enough time.


  • bus to Galway from DUB
    Jun 2, 2016
    We will fly to Dublin from Southampton and we plan to take a bus from the airport to Galway. What will we do re customs/immigration? We will have checked bags to collect. My real question is: how much time should we leave between arriving and the bus? Is an hour enough if all we plan to do is collect our bags, clear cust/immg, and find our bus?


    There are no border controls between the UK and Ireland.

    Sorry. Didn't mean to post twice.

    Arriving at 515am from CHI on Aer Lingus with a depart for Rome on 630 am......this is on the same reservation. Is this enough time? Do we have to get our bags and go through customs? Thank you


    That should be enough time. You do not have to do anything with your bags or go through passport control.


  • Dublin layover
    Mar 6, 2016
    I'm flying with Aer Lingus from BOS to LHR on 7/5/16 and can choose 1hr40 minute layover in Dublin or a layover of more than 3 hours. Which would be the more hassle-free option?


    3 hours would obviously be much less hassle.


  • Three hour layover with checked bags
    Nov 12, 2015
    Hello, On December 12, I have an international flight with Aer Lingus from San Francisco to Dublin. There is a three hour layover at Dublin, and then I have another flight with Aer Lingus (booked on a SEPARATE itinerary) from Dublin to Edinburgh. I'm concerned about how busy it might be during this time of year, or the possibility of the flight from SFO being delayed. Is the three hour layover going to be enough time to retrieve my checked bags, go through customs and security, and check in my bags for the next flight?


    It won't be busy December 12. You should have plenty of time. You could probably also call Aer Lingus to have your reservations combined into a single one so your bags can be checked through to Edinburgh.


    Thanks so much! Is there any sort of European customs process I can get out of the way while in SFO?


    No, you will go through Irish immigration in Dublin and there is no border check when going between Ireland and the UK.
