The continued safety and wellbeing of our passengers and crew is always our highest priority which is why we have implemented enhanced wellbeing measures which includes all customers aged 11 and above wearing face masks.

There is an exemption to the requirement for a face covering for customers with medical grounds, such as respiratory difficulties. If you meet the exemption requirements, you may be asked to present supporting government documentation

This is one element of a series of enhanced wellbeing measures we have implemented which include:

  • Microbe Shield surface protection in the cabin
  • Aircraft touch point sanitation procedures
  • Cabin air is continuously replenished with fresh air every 5 - 7 minutes, the cabin may be slightly cooler than normal, therefore you may wish to have a jumper to hand
  • Seat allocation to maximise the distance between passengers in the cabin where possible.
  • Reduced contact points, with the exception of safety cards, all seat-back literature has been removed and there is no inflight service

We look forward to welcoming you on board.

Trinity College

Trinity College is as good a place as any to kick off your Dublin tour!

Immerse yourself in a variety of wonderful experiences.

The Spire of Dublin

One of the easiest monuments to spot from afar, the Spire proudly stands 120 metres above ground, 3 metres in diameter at the base and 15 centimetres at its apex. On sunny days the completely stainless-steel structure is illuminated by the sun and at night the tip of the structure is lit up – a photo opportunity not to be missed.

Ha’penny Bridge

This unique white-picketed bridge, its name derived from the price pedestrians had to pay to cross, was the first pedestrian bridge to span over the river Liffey. Built in 1816, it has become one of the most iconic structures that identifies Dublin – a trip to Dublin simply wouldn’t be complete without walking across it.

Dublin Castle
