The Irish capital of Dublin is a bustling hub of culture and history. Situated on the east coast, this unique city is home to some of the friendliest people on earth and you are bound to enjoy many brief encounters over a traditional pint of Guinness in one of the many Irish pubs. Dublin is also known for its many prolific authors, which has led to it becoming a UNESCO City of Literature.
It is definitely worth spending some time to soak in this iconic city before embarking on a cruise from Dublin if you have the chance. Smaller ships are able to sail further up the River Liffey towards the city centre, while larger vessels often berth in Alexandra Quay – approximately one-and-a-half miles away. In more recent years, the port has been able to attract vessels from lines including Celebrity Cruises and Princess Cruises.
Rail links to the terminal via the Point Luas station provide easy access to Dublin Port from the city centre. From Dublin Airport, an approximated 13-minute journey by taxi or bus service will take you to the cruise terminal. Dublin is also accessible via regular ferry services from Douglas, Isle of Man; Holyhead, Wales; and Liverpool.
