    :confused: I can't seem to find a non-stop between DUB and SNN ? I find it strange that ITA lists AerLingus and BA offering flights between the two via LHR ? :eek:

    Another Ireland question:

    Is DUB-LHR considered a domestic flight w.r.t to visas for non US, non EEA country's passport holder ? There seems to be a debate in boards.ie

    Here a couple of accurate links to visa questions.
    https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/british-irish-visa-scheme/british-irish-visa-scheme
    http://www.citizensinformation.ie/e...n_travel_area_between_ireland_and_the_uk.html
    "You do not need a visa to land in Ireland if you are a citizen of the EEA or of one of the countries listed"

    Many people take the bus or train between the two. http://www.buseireann.ie/
    I don't think there are non-stop flights between the two as they are only about 140 miles apart. The flights you typically see will be connecting in London so they are like 4 hours with 1 stop. I think FR used to fly some route with a stop at KIR between the two. It's not far so Ryanair wouldn't kill you but it might be worse than a bus. I don't think FR offers that anymore and they still make you go to London or Manchester, etc.

    I fly DUB - LCY and reverse - never have had any passport check. CityJet has a nice service and I get my DL miles etc.

    As far as DUB - SNN - bus is the way to go.

    As others posted below, it's a very small island (lol) and there are no Dublin-Shannon flights. Doesn't make sense. I used to live in Dublin, so bus, car or train is the way to go. Not sure why you want to do that - but if you you are planning to see Ireland and don't want to double back because you've booked a round trip out of Shannon see how it fares out to fly into Shannon and out of Dublin. Another thing is - if you are going to London - then book your over the water flight separately from your London-Ireland flights. Usually much cheaper.
