Just a short hop from the centre of England and across the Irish Sea, flights from Birmingham to Dublin are fast, frequent and cheap. Book cheap flights and touch down on the Emerald Isle in just 60 to 80 minutes.
Aer Lingus, Ryanair and British Airways offer direct flights to Dublin from Birmingham, delivering visitors into the capital of the Republic of Ireland, where the River Liffey flows as fast and free as the Guinness. Stay for a few days to soak up the unique atmosphere of this fair city, where art, sport, culture and a clutch of attractions pave the way to evenings at one of the many pubs.
Sitting just five miles from central Birmingham and at the heart of the motorway network in the Midlands, Birmingham Airport (BHX) is one of Britain’s busiest, handling around nine million passengers every year. It has a newly extended runway and has had millions of pounds pumped into its infrastructure in recent years, making it a world-class air hub.
It’s easy to reach the airport from much of England by car or coach, as it’s just minutes from the M42 and M6, and close to the M40 too. Parking at the airport is plentiful, with both on- and off-site options and short- and long-stay offers available. Book online well in advance to secure a great deal on airport parking.
Arriving by train is also quick and easy, as Birmingham International railway station offers a free air-rail link to the airport.
Birmingham Airport boasts all of the usual amenities, with the addition of a swanky champagne bar – perfect if your trip marks a special occasion. The airport’s lounges – the Aspire Lounge and the No. 1 Lounge – can add a further touch of class to your pre-flight wait.
Travelling from Birmingham to Dublin with kids? Keep them entertained before take-off in the brilliant Sky Zone, near Gate 54, which features soft play for toddlers plus games for older children.
