International Access to Ireland
Getting to and from Ireland has never been easier or more affordable. There are daily direct flights to Ireland from a wide range of cities in the UK, US, Europe and the UAE. Thanks to two major low cost Irish airlines– Ryanair and Aer Lingus–as well as dozens of other international carriers, our international airports in Dublin and Shannon are able to welcome more and more visitors from all over the world into Ireland every single day. Shannon Airport allows visitors to arrive straight into the heart of the Wild Atlantic Way. It is the primary international airport facilitating flights in and out of the West Coast of Ireland.
US Pre Clearance: Flights departing from Shannon and Dublin to the USA go through Immigration AND Customs in Ireland! This means that delegates can avoid long queues when they arrive home– they will arrive in a domestic terminal.
