We will be there for 5 hours 50 if all goes well.
We arrive from the US at 9:50 am (wheels down) and take off again at 15:40.
A little background- there are 6 of us coming from US and heading to Rome in mid August.
So, here's my barrage of questions to any kind souls who will entertain me:
1- How long does it take to clear customs coming from US? is it reasonable to expect (of course only if flight is on time) that we would be through customs by 11?
2. How long in advance of our flight to Rome do we need to be back at the airport?
3. Are there lockers in the airport where we could stow extra carry-on items?
4. I know Dublin proper would be a stretch. Could we at least make it out to Swords or Malahide to see SOMETHING or at least grab a pint?
5. as there are 6 of us will we need 2 cabs? Are they easy to get or should we hire a car prior to arrival? Is it easy to get a cab BACK or should we plan ahead for that?
i've seen other threads but they are several years old so i would like to make sure we have current info. Thanks all for your help! We are so excited to see Ireland, even for a quick second.
