Manchester Airport (MAN) is one of the UK’s busiest and a global gateway for passengers in the north of England. Its position to the south of Manchester city centre, its proximity to the motorway network of the north west, including the M56 and the M6, and the huge range of destinations on offer, also make Manchester Airport a fantastic choice for travellers from the rest of England, Wales and Scotland.
Many of the 20 million passengers that pass through Manchester Airport make use of the many car-parking options available. Book in advance to make savings on the drive-up price, whether you’re after short-stay, long-stay, on-site or off-site parking.
The airport’s dedicated transport hub, The Station, offers direct access to the terminals for passengers arriving by both train and coach.
The three main departure terminals at Manchester Airport are equally enjoyable for passengers, with plenty of opportunities to shop, drink, eat and worship before take-off. Free WiFi is available for up to one hour. Time in the Escape Lounge can also be booked in each terminal, for an extra special treat ahead of flights from Manchester to Dublin.
Travelling with young children? The airport offers a free fast lane through security if you have a youngster in a pushchair.
Manchester to Dublin flights operated by Aer Lingus depart from Terminal 1. If you have booked flights with either Ryanair or British Airways, you will need to use Terminal 3. The selection of shops and restaurants at T3 is more limited, but still extensive.
Taxis, bus and coach services and cheap Dublin car hire are the best ways to reach central destinations from Dublin Airport (DUB).
A one-way taxi fare to Dublin city centre costs in the region of 25 euros. A cheaper but slower option is to travel on local buses, which run frequently and cost a few euros per person. The airport coach services are excellent, with an adult return ticket costing from 10 euros. The Airlink 747 service is popular with arriving passengers and it drops off at convenient stops such as the central bus station, Trinity College and Temple Bar, and a number of city hotels.
Cheap weekend getaways are rarely more wild and wonderful than in Dublin, the capital of the Republic of Ireland. Huddled around the mouth of the River Liffey, on the east coast of this green and lovely land, Dublin never falls out of fashion with those looking for short breaks packed with history, heritage, culture, sport, shopping, art and plenty of good ol’ Irish craic.
From mates’ breaks on a budget to luxury getaways for two, Dublin caters for a mixed crowd thanks to its varied and welcoming cityscape. There are reminders of the past in the Medieval Quarter (cathedrals and castles anyone?), the Georgian Quarter and the Antique Quarter, where bargain hunters seek ancient treasures.
The vibrancy of the Tech Quarter, the Cultural Quarter and the Dame District, however, remind visitors that Dublin is a thoroughly modern destination. There’s nothing old and stuffy about a night out in the Cultural Quarter’s Temple Bar area (though your head might feel a bit stuffy the following morning).
