Flights to Dublin
What to know before you fly to Dublin?
When is the best time to visit Dublin? That all depends what you’re keen to see and do. Summer is peak season, not only for the warmer weather but also for the longer days. If you’re planning on booking your flights to Dublin for St Patrick’s Day, doing so well in advance is definitely recommended. The currency in Dublin is the euro (€); the language is English, with many signs also written in Gaelic; and the craic is an Irish word meaning news, gossip, fun, entertainment and enjoyable conversation (the best idea is to get a local to explain it – preferably over a pint in the pub!)
