The good news is that air fares have reduced so dramatically in recent times air travel is much more affordable – the bad news is that car parking at Dublin airport may cost you more than your flight!
A recent guest found herself circling Dublin Airport car park — but she wasn’t on a plane but searching for an empty space to leave her car while she was gone. Fortunately she had a mobile phone so could give us a call, booked and our shuttle bus got her back to the airport in time to catch her flight. Most seasoned travelers know the stress of flying can start well before you arrive at the terminal so forward planning is essential.
Dublin Airport car park: although often the closest option it is not always the best! Perhaps the most convenient, however it can often be costly, in particular if booked last minute or in the busy season. Furthermore, with the exception of the short term car park, is more accurately described as parking near Dublin airport, as a shuttle bus is required and the distance traveled can be quite considerable.
Parking at an airport hotel may be slightly farther from the airport car park, but often offer a more pleasant experience than lugging your bags across a pot holed, puddle filled airport parking lot where you wait in the cold and rain until the arrival of the airport shuttle. Many offer the comfort of a cosy lounge area to relax in until the shuttle is ready to whisk you to Dublin airport. Although in busy periods it is worth remembering to book early.
Offsite Parking near Dublin Airport: leaving yourself a little extra time can make you considerable savings when selecting a Dublin airport car park. Easy on line booking, low rates, an airport shuttle bus and excellent facilities make offsite parking a superb option for parking near Dublin airport. It is worth checking the parking facilities themselves – security is a relevant feature– with secure underground car parking facilities and CCTV providing peace of mind whilst you are away.
