Dublin Airport Advice for Travellers

  • Check which terminal your flight departs from BEFORE travelling to the airport.
  • Arrive in your correct terminal at least 1.5 hours before your official departure time, whether or not you are checking in luggage.
  • Proceed directly to security screening areas after check-in, as there could be queues and delays at this stage. Have liquids separated out and check out the EU Aviation Security regulations concerning this before leaving home.
  • Remove laptops and tablets from luggage for screening.
