Dublin to Shannon airport

Dublin to Shannon airport

For reasons that can't be changed, we are flying out of Shannon but will be in Dublin at the end of our trip to meet friends. Our flight is Sunday at 1130 am back to Philadelphia. We're having trouble figuring out what the best way is to get to Shannon airport Sunday morning. Is there a direct train from Dublin to Shannon? Would we have enough time if we left early Sunday morning? If we have to cut a night from Dublin to get to Shannon (or somewhere nearby) Saturday night, we're ok with that too. Any advice you can provide is greatly appreciated. Thank you!

I would suggest you stay near Shannon for your last night. This website will help you work out your public transport options - you could take a bus from Dublin to Shannon via Limerick but it looks like you would need to leave Saturday night, early Sun morning to make your flight.

Don't risk your flight by staying in Dublin the last night. You will need to check in a minimum of 3 hours beforehand. Thats 8.30am. And it will take about 2.5 hours to get from Dublin to Shannon. So thats then 6am leaving. Which means getting up at 5am, at which point there would be no point in going to bed :o))

The Oakwood Arms in Shannon is a good place to stay the night before www.oakwoodarms.com

Dubfam's website will help you get from Dublin to Shannon.

It also looks like to make that flight you'd need to take the bus after midnight to get to Shannon at 4:30am.

I'd question whether that is worthwhile
