The easiest way to get to Dublin Airport from the city centre is definitely by car. Access roads for both terminals are in place, cutting down on congestion. In terms of budget, rental cars are generally cheaper than taxis, unless you plan on arriving in Dublin and seeing everything on foot. They are also more convenient than buses running fixed routes.

Europcar is one of the main hire car companies at Dublin Airport Terminal 1. The car hire desks are in the Arrivals Hall on the outside wall. To one side of the desks is the terminal’s Bank of Ireland branch. To other is the main entrance and the airport information desk.

Collecting your Dublin Airport rental car is easy. Once you have collected your baggage and passed through customs, you can proceed to the Europcar help desk. If you booked your rental car in advance, present your confirmation details at this time. Next, the associate will direct you to the glassed-in walkway heading to Terminal 2. Halfway down the walkway is a clearly marked turn-off for car rental services.

Europcar has a solid reputation at Dublin Airport Terminal 1. The average age of the fleet is six months, with no single car more than three years old. It’s wise to book in advance, though, as this ensures that you will get the vehicle of your choice and also secures preferential early-bird discounts that aren’t afforded to walk-up customers.
