Located 10km from downtown, Dublin International Airport is located in the county of Fingal and is the main gateway to its home city. It has risen to become one of Ireland’s busiest airports over the years, enjoying considerably high passenger traffic as one of Europe’s major gateways. Many prominent airlines dock at Dublin Airport, particularly Ryanair and Aer Lingus which operations are based within the airport’s premises. The airport also efficiently connects and covers the regional peripheries of Europe, and flies most frequently to and from London. Two main passenger terminals make up Dublin Airport’s grounds; with terminal 1 hosting Ryanair operations alongside most regional flight routes, and terminal 2 hosting Aer Lingus’s operations with most international flight routes across the world. Should there be a need to cross over and get into the opposite terminal, rest assured that this is easily done on foot via an exclusive walkway installed for this sole purpose. Within the airport’s two terminals, passengers will find themselves surrounded by plenty of amenities and services. One notable feature is The Loop, a one-stop destination for all passengers young and old. Shopping and retail options are vast here, and passengers can easily spend a few hours getting lost in the endless range of brands and menus.
