Getting to Ireland is as simple as getting to any other European country. It is well serviced by budget airlines such as Ryanair and also long haul carriers like Delta, Continental, Aer LIngus and British Airways.
Since the advent of the low cost airline and especially because of Ryanair's dominance in this market place, you can fly to Ireland from nearly all European Countries.
Dublin Airport is conveniently located approximately 10 km north of Dublin city centre, near the M50 and M1 motorways. You can get to and from the airport by bus, taxi, or car, and there are also services from nearby train stations.
Shannon Airport, the gateway to the mid-west, is situated just 20km from Limerick city and 25km from Ennis along the N18. You can get to the airport by bus, taxi or car. There are no rail services directly to the airport. The new Shannon Tunnel shortens the journey from Limerick city by about 15 mins.
If you are flying from the UK or Europe the choices are many and the costs relatively low. Make sure that in the best low cost tradition you, book on time, arrive on time, check your bag size on time and you should have a hassle free trip. If flying from the US or Canada you will generally arrive in Dublin or Belfast however there is often a stop over in Shannon. So if you are visiting the West of Ireland you should look out for a flight that will take you to Shannon.
UK and mainland Europe residents, if you would rather drive your own car while on holidays in Ireland you can take the Ferry. From the UK you can get Irish Ferries or Stena Line and from the Continent you can travel with Irish Ferries and Celtic Link Ferries.
