Flying out of Dublin


Active Member
Time of past OR future Camino
Camino Frances 2006, Camino Portuguese 2009
I just found really inexpensive tickets flying from US to Dublin. What I am wondering is how hard it is to fly out of Dublin to France. When I made reservations to Gatwick in 2006 I had no idea about having to try to get from one airport to another, the time frame and costs. The ticket is half the cost of other tickets but I tried Ryanair and they don't have flights on the day I need to fly out. I guess easyjet doesn't fly out of Dublin? What other airlines fly out of Dublin and any advice would be welcome before I book the flight.

Try or airfrance for direct flights or for indirect flights to France.

How about ryanair for flights to Spain?


Currently ryanair & aerlingus fly daily to Gatwick.

From Dublin you can fly to Biaritz with Ryanair. Then catch a train or bus to Bayonne, then a Train to SJPP.

Tip: To aviod getting charged extra credit card fees, purchase Ryanair gift vouchers (no fees) and use that to buy your ticket. Beware though, you will not get any change from the vouchers that come in €50 lots.

Hope this helps.

To avoid the booking fee you can get a Ryanair credit card,master card,on the Ryanair web site.You do not have use it,keep it for booking flights with Rip off air oh I mean Ryanair.
Buen Camino,

stpatricksbhoy, Unless there has been a change in terms, I don't think that information is accurate. The zero charge applies to Visa Electron cards only.
Gift vouchers are available in €25 / €50 values, with a maximum of four to purchase a flight; but beware strict conditions.
