Ireland to Scotland?

We will be in Ireland for 3 weeks in June. Is it feasible to go to Scotland during that time? How would we get there? ( We are from Australia)

You get there by flying or by ferry. Your time is limited so flying is probably best. You can fly from dublin, cork, Shannon, knock and Belfast to Scotland. Try these airlines and beware the strict baggage allowances for internal European flights

Also note that as non EU citizens you need to get your travel documentation stamped at the Ryanair desk at the airport if traveling with them. You also must check in online with most low fare airlines or pay a higher price at the airport

It's a short flight. The longest routes like Cork-Edinburgh and Dublin-Aberdeen are around the 1h 40m mark, while on a route like Belfast-Glasgow, you seem to be landing as soon as you're taking off.

If you're incorporating areas of Ireland like the Causeway Coast, the Glens of Antrim or Belfast into your itinerary, it's quite feasible to use the ferry as well (about 2 hours from Larne to Cairnryan or Troon).
