Dublin Airport is 10km north of Dublin city, and is Ireland's busiest international airport, with more than 20.5 million passengers having passed through the airport in 2009.
All the major car rental companies have desks at the airport and there are also excellent bus and taxi links from Dublin Airport to Dublin city.
Around Dublin airport itself and outside the airport grounds there is a choice of many hotels, with excellent facilities and very competitive prices. You may be travelling to or from Dublin Airport for an early flight, in which case you will find that there is a great variety of hotel accommodation with many great special offers.
Generally the airport hotels do not have leisure facilities but most of them offer free car parking and many provide a courtesy coach to the airport terminal building. Before making your choice make sure to check what facilities your hotel offers, for your maximum convenience.
Dublin Airport hotels are about a 20 minute taxi ride to Dublin city centre.
