This is an unofficial guide to Dublin Airport T1

Airport Transport

Getting to and from Dublin Airport Terminal 1 is easy. The fact that Terminal 2 is now operating side by side with the old terminal is no problem, since each has its own dedicated approach.

Some of the facilities, including those for transport by bus and hire car, are located between the two terminals. Passengers can reach them by entering the covered walkway connecting the two and exiting where the signs indicate. Short-term parking across from the entrance is dedicated expressly to Terminal 1. Long-term car parks are shared by both terminals.
