With an excess of Dublin Airport 18 million passengers passing through each year, Dublin Airport is one of Europe’s busiest. Dublin became a two-terminal facility in 2010, when T2 opened to a great deal of fanfare and expectation. In the meantime, Terminal 1 is still going strong, handling all of the regional and short-haul flights that pass through Dublin.
Dublin’s Terminal 1 is an important hub for the Europe’s leading low-cost airline, Ryanair. The airline operates a vast network of routes across the European continent and to many prominent resort destinations. Ryanair has its own dedicated pier north of the airport. Joining Ryanair are many other airlines, offering a mix of regular, seasonal and charter services.
Terminal 1’s facilities are thorough. The Loop is the main retail hub in this terminal, and it offers its trademark ‘shop-and-collect’ service to passengers on the move. Restaurants are scattered throughout The Loop, with an additional concentration above the departures floor at the Mezzanine Food Court. For more information about restaurants at T1 check our our eating at T1 section.
Terminal 1 is well-connected to the whole of Europe, but it also enjoys excellent transport links on the ground. Roughly 700 buses serve the terminal, backed by taxis and an armada of Dublin Airport hire cars of which Europcar offer great service at Dublin Airport T1.
