Dublin to London Travel Made EasyAuthor: Andrew Regan
Dublin is the capital of Ireland and the largest city in the country. The most important point of entry and departure for the country, the majority of airlines fly in and out of Dublin Airport so your travel needs should be well met if travelling by air.
Dublin Airport is an international airport located to the north of the city. Both domestic and international flights arrive here so if you are travelling to and from London by air then this will be your departure and arrival point. The airport lies in close proximity to the city centre and is linked to the city by several bus routes.
If you do not want to travel by aeroplane then there are various “rail and sail” options you can make use of. By combining train and ferry travel you can travel between the two capital cities without ever having to leave the ground.
Dublin has two ports that serve as the main points of sea transport with the rest of Britain. Dublin Port is linked to the city centre by bus. Dun Laoghaire Harbour is the second port, located opposite Dun Laoghaire DART rail station. If you terminate at Dun Laoghaire Harbour you can be whisked into Dublin city centre in no time as there are very frequent trains running between the two points.
For getting around Dublin, the DART suburban rail line follows a coastal route, from Malahide and Howth to the north, all the way around the scenic Dublin Bay to Bray and Greystones on the south side. Dublin has two major railway stations, Heuston Station and Connolly Station.
On the other side of the water, London has several train and bus stations as well as five major airports: Heathrow, Gatwick, Stansted, London City and Luton.
London is served by nearly every airline imaginable so travelling between Dublin and London should present no problems and you should be able to tailor your travel plans to suit yourself.
Fifteen miles west of central London lies Heathrow, the world’s busiest international airport which has five terminals. About 30 miles south of central London is Gatwick airport which is smaller, and not quite as busy as Heathrow.
London’s third-busiest international gateway, Stansted, lies 35 miles northeast of central London, heading towards Cambridge. Luton airport is also around thirty miles north of London city centre.
London City Airport is predominantly a business airport, although it does also serve holiday travellers as well. Excellent proximity to central London, just six miles away, makes it a handy for access to the heart of all the action.
If you are travelling between Dublin and London you will most likely need to investigate hotel options as well. There are plenty of luxury hotels in London as well as Dublin and both cities offer medium range to less expensive options, so whatever your budget you should be able to find something to fit the bill.
