London to Dublin

There are various ways of getting from London to Dublin - flying, by train/ferry, by coach or bus and the ferry, or even by driving and then taking one of the ferries. The best option to choose depends on your budget, the time at your disposal, and whether you have other travel plans in Ireland. There’s plenty to do and see in Dublin, and you could easily spend a week or more there, but if you only have one or two days, the city is still well worth visiting. You can go for a day or a week, and you can do it cheaply too. You can even go from London to Dublin and back in a day.

Can you make a day trip to Dublin from London? Yes, you can. Flight time is only 75-90 minutes so an early morning flight departure from London, and an evening return, would give you a good 12 hours to explore Dublin. Bear in mind that a day return flight is likely to be more expensive than if you spend at least one night in Dublin.
