I did this trip for this price on Thur and it's back again! E.g. 9 April you can have a nice long day trip, avoiding expensive hotels! Nice Mothers' Day present possibly (it's on 30 March).

freeze it for s.s stacy

does this include taxes and charges

Done this a few times never again .Bus airport to city £12 return, pint of Guinness 5.50 euro, lemonade 200ml 2.5 euro.....rip off city and I'm Irish! Even budgeting it will be around £80 plus for a day trip by the time you have taken everything into consideration.

I did this last week for a couple of days. Early afternoon flights with Ryanair (flight time 30/35 mins-by the time you get to the cruise you then make your decent). £9.99 each way including taxes. Air coach bus from the airport dropped us off within the vicinity of our hotel.

Dublin is very expensive for food and drink and comparable to London for accommodation prices but most major cities are nowadays. Gosh a hotel in Manchester can cost > £100/night.

It's definitely worth a visit; it has history, plenty to do and the people who are actually irish (lots of immigrants) are very friendly

Take a look at the Ripley court hotel . It's 5mins walk from O'connol street. A couple of mates and i stayed there a few years ago. Warm, clean, decent enough bed for £50/night.....just don't eat their breakfast lol

Thanks OP, wow the bus ticket whilst convenient is akin to having nasal hairs pulled out with pliers ..painful, thought the sheer amount of visitors would actually make th service cheap & viable, bearing in mind how rammed it often used to be, who is the moneygrabbing company behind it? doubtless claiming it subsidises other routes (shareholders more like).

Used to be cheap & affordable, now i'm less likely to take the nipper to dublin & just go to europe instead.

If you're getting a bus into the city get the normal local bus, costs about €2

Ah, the usual waffle.

One day unlimited Adult Dublin Bus rambler ticket purchased at Spar newsagents or ticket machines at airport terminal: 6.50 euro/£5.50 (including Dublin Bus Airlink (Airport to city centre express bus).
Pint of Guinness: 4 - 4.50 euro / £3.40 - 3.90- Avoid any bar in Temple Bar where you will pay well above the odds. Pubs such as Peader Kearneys on Dame Street offer 3 euro pints all day as far as I recall. Craft beers or local brews can be cheaper, keep a lookout.
Cheap food? Alot of cafes have a coffee and pastry for around 3.50 euro. Get a chicken fillet roll or any baguette and a tea/coffee from a Spar/Centra convenience store and perhaps enjoy the Spring weather in Stephens Green and people watch over lunch. Plenty of excellent early bird offers in the south city area between Dame Street and Grafton Street. Some cheap Oriental restuarants to the north of O'Connell Street and around Parnell Street.
Culture and History: All Irish national museums are free of charge (closed Monday I think...not too sure). Obviously privately run museums and cultural attractions charge a fee but these are comparable to historic sites around Europe. For some different, off the beaten track and very interesting, St Michans Church has a half hour tour of the 12th century crypt with intact mummies including an 800 year old Crusader. You can pop around the corner to the Jameson Distillery after to calm your nerves.

Overall, it is a great place to visit, yes it is more expensive then the UK but if you do it right and avoid the ultimate tourist trap that is Temple Bar you can have a cheap and rewarding short trip to Dublin....hope this helps!
Could help checking mydealpage.ie for all vouchers and offers for restaurants/events/hotels etc!

As custommade07 has said, it isn't necessarily deer. The day bus ticket is 7.60 euros and includes airport express bus (I've done the 2 euro each way one years ago and it's agony and also can't pay for that with a card - I didn't take any euros). Loads of SPar/Londis 1 of them does a posh hot drink and decent pastry/muffin for 2 euro, most have inside seating areas. Aforementioned baguette too. I went mad and had a burger king - they have same offer as here, free fries+drink with burger - survey off back of receipt.

Thanks, being meaning to book flights to catch the giro in dublin and managed to get some cheap seats.

nearly packed my bags but then realised it said Dublin not Dubai - Oops. My bad
