When it comes to planning your vacation, thinking about airport parking is not usually a top priority. Finding a good parking space in Dublin Airport’s car park can be challenging, even with being expensive, the parking spots fill up promptly and you might be driving around the car park for quite a while, being stressed out and taking the chance of missing your flight. Wouldn’t it be nice to have a smooth start to your holiday?
It’s a lot cheaper to park near Dublin Airport if you avoid airport’s own long-term car parks and saving on airport parking rates means you will have more money to spend on your vacation. We are located just few minutes from Dublin Airport and underground car park is available for non-residents who wish to leave their car while travelling abroad from only €4 per day.
There is a shuttle service to and from Dublin Airport from 4am until 11.45pm. Bus leaves from the hotel on the hour and half hour costing €2 per person for a round trip.

Like booking flights and hotels, the same rules apply when making airport parking reservations – Park & Fly service in our hotel is very popular so it is important to reserve your parking space well in advance. Making the booking on our website is very easy, enter the dates and times you are scheduled to travel and fill a reservation form.
To make your departure as pleasant as possible, please allow yourself enough time, though this seems like an obvious thing, it is surprising how many people cut it too close. Even though recommended check-in times before your flight are subject to change by airlines, it is advisable that you arrive to the airport 2 hours before for a continental flight and 3 hours before for an international flight. Prior your shuttle trip, you will also need some time to park your car and make your way on the bus. Getting to the airport bit early is always better than getting there too late, even if then you have some time to kill.
On some rare occasions, we may ask for your car keys so that your car could be valet parked (i.e. parked by one of our professional bus drivers). Your car will not be taken out of the hotel complex and keys will be stored securely in the safe until your return. If you are running late, this is a great option to save some valuable minutes.
Airport parking tips, some of which are simple and obvious, can save travelers a lot of hassle. An organized itinerary, and an arrival at the airport with plenty of time to spare, will help out quite a bit.
Rueben’s Restaurant in our hotel is serving breakfast, lunch and dinner daily so why not allow yourself even more time to have a nice meal with us and get into a holiday mood even before getting to the airport!
