Avoid Parking Issues at Dublin Airport

 According to DAA, 425,000 passengers will pass through Dublin Airport this weekend, with all on-site parking already sold out. Expressway is encouraging passengers to save time and money and to take the coach instead. Expressway has over 13,000 seats to Dublin Airport from the north-east, north-west and south-east available across the weekend.

Passengers travelling to the airport should ensure to arrive at Dublin Airport three hours prior to their flight departure time.

Seaside Travel

With the sunny weather forecast for the weekend, Bus Éireann reminds passengers planning to travel to coastal locations to plan their journeys. In particular we ask customers to be conscious that while we offer a wide range of travel times to costal destinations throughout the day, there can be capacity issues if all passengers plan to take the last service on their return journey. 

Speaking ahead of the weekend Allen Parker, Chief Customer Officer, Bus Éireann said: “Bus Éireann is looking forward to getting our passengers to and from where they want to be this weekend. We encourage everyone to plan their journey and book online where possible. We would also like to thank our Bus Éireann colleagues who will be working very hard this weekend facilitating our passengers.”
