When you’re flying to Glendalough, Dublin Airport is about 45 miles north of the village and just over an hour’s drive away. As Ireland’s largest and busiest airport, Dublin has both short and medium haul flights arriving on a daily basis. It is exceptionally well equipped, with two terminals and all the amenities you would expect from an airport of this size.
You can fly to Glendalough via Dublin from numerous locations around the UK, including all the major London airports (Gatwick, Heathrow, Luton, Stansted and London City) as well as from East Midlands, Manchester, Liverpool, Southampton, Edinburgh International and many more.
It’s very likely that you’re flying to Glendalough to enjoy the hiking and outdoor activities on offer in County Wicklow's resplendent National Park. With that in mind, it couldn’t hurt to make a checklist before you fly to Glendalough – just to avoid those annoyances that might otherwise crop up to spoil your trip. Don’t forget to bring your hiking gear, ordnance survey maps or smartphone charger.
Being so close to the UK, it may also be easy to forget that the national currency in the Republic of Ireland is the Euro. While there are several Bureau de Change desks available at Dublin Airport, Glendalough is very rural, so make sure you have your financial arrangements sorted before you arrive.
Once your flight arrives in Dublin, Glendalough is just an hour’s journey away by road. There are bus services running from Dublin, although these aren’t direct. Unfortunately, the Wicklow Mountains National Park is not connected to a major railway service, so there are no trains here.
