Marietta College in Ireland: Arrival and Departure Information

Arrival information

One group transfer from the Dublin airport to the Maple Hotel in Dublin centre will be arranged for the morning of Wednesday, May 6.

All program participants should be arriving on American Airlines flight #722 into Dublin at 8:45AM on Wednesday, May 6. Amber will be waiting for you with a “CISabroad – Marietta College” sign in the arrivals area after you pass through customs.

Navigating between Dublin’s airport and city centre is nothing to be intimidated by! Furthermore, the Irish speak English (phewf!) and are a very hospitable people. If for any reason you miss the group transfer, please let your onsite staff know you will be making your way to the hotel independently, and by which route you intend to travel, so we can estimate your time of arrival.

Getting to the Maple Hotel in Dublin independently:

A taxi from Dublin airport to Maple Hotel will cost about 35€ one-way and there will be plenty available outside of both Terminals 1 &2 when you have your belongings and are ready to travel into Dublin. Without traffic the journey takes about 20 minutes. In traffic the journey can take anywhere from 30-40 minutes. This option, while not the least expensive, is certainly the most convenient if you find yourself having to navigate from door-to-door independent of the group.

You also have the option of taking a bus into Dublin’s centre, which costs about 8€ one-way. The journey time takes between 30-40 minutes depending on traffic. There are multiple options for taking the bus and we recommend familiarizing yourself with them prior to travel just in case you need to use one when you arrive in Dublin.

Dublin Bus: Dublin Bus offers many routes throughout Dublin, including an AirLink express bus to Heuston and Connolly Rail Stations.

Airlink service will bring you direct from Dublin City Centre or Rail/Bus Stations to Dublin Airport (or vice versa)
