For arrivals by air into Ireland, taxi and public transport transfers into the country’s cities are generally straightforward. If you’re flying into Dublin, for example, there are no less than three bus operators taking new arrivals to different parts of the city, not to mention a throng of taxis. The drive time into central Dublin averages around half an hour – more at peak times – and you can expect to spend €25-30 for a cab.
As a rule in Ireland, airport transfer distances are fairly short. To give a couple of other examples, the drive from Cork Airport to the city’s central bus station lasts around 20 minutes, while Waterford Airport is just 15 minutes from its namesake city.
Getting around Ireland’s cities themselves is just as easy. Urban transport networks in the form of trams, light rail and buses are employed around the country. Ireland’s cities also tend to have compact historic centres, making it easy to take in the main sights on foot. And if you need to refuel, there’s never a pub far away – you are in Ireland, after all.
Awareness has grown in recent years of Ireland’s world-class road trip potential. Routes such as the Wild Atlantic Way in the west, as well as similarly dramatic options on the southern and eastern coastlines, give holidaymakers in Ireland the chance to make unforgettable journeys at their own pace.
You could cover 150 kilometres (93 miles) in a day or make the same drive over the course of a week, getting your toes sandy and your hair windblown with stops along the way. For a memorable way of getting around Ireland, both options hold obvious appeal.
