With all car parks at Dublin Airport currently “sold out”, and spaces limited in the weeks and months ahead, drivers can take advantage of nearby hotels offering park and fly shuttle services.

Earlier this week, Dublin Airport warned that both long-term and short-term car parking was “extremely limited”, and expected to remain that way throughout the summer.

However, many of the hotels around Dublin Airport provide parking with a shuttle bus service directly to the terminals.

Costs to park per night vary from hotel to hotel and spaces can be limited. All rates below include hotel parking for non-guests and a shuttle bus service that will transfer directly to the airport.

The drop off point for all shuttle services is located at Coach Park 16, near Terminals 1 and 2.

The hotels’ shuttle service is signposted in the arrival hall of both terminals and is located at the end of the glass tunnel, about a 3-minute walk from Terminal 1 and 5 minutes from Terminal 2.

Carlton Hotel

The Carlton Hotel, located five minutes from Dublin Airport on the Old Airport Road, provides a park and fly shuttle bus service from €15 per night.

Non-guests can park in the car park and avail of the shuttle bus service. However, spaces are limited. The shuttle runs every 20 minutes from 4am to 10am, and every 30 minutes from 10am to 4am.

The Clayton Hotel, located 10 minutes from Dublin Airport in Swords, offers a park and fly shuttle bus service from €14 per night. However, it is currently sold out until May 28 and therefore only available to guests.
