Dublin Airport Long-Stay Parking

About Dublin Airport Parking

Dublin Airport is home to three different long-stay car parking options, which are all operated 24 hours a day, every day of the year. Almost 30 million people travel to and from Dublin Airport every year, and the site allows for this huge volume by supplying 15,500 long-stay parking spaces - as well as 3,100 short-term spaces. All long-term spaces have 24-hour security.

Why Use Dublin Airport Long-Stay Parking?

If you are flying from Dublin Airport and intend to travel for a holiday or long business trip, it is advisable to make your booking before arrival. Not only will you get a better price, but you will also ensure that you have a designated spot. There are Dublin Airport long-stay parking options, but they fill up remarkably quickly at busy times of the year, so it’s always best to plan ahead. Alternatively, you are able to use external long-stay car parks, which are operated by private companies in the local vicinity. Let’s take a look at your options.

Where Is Express Red Located?

Express Red is the first long-stay parking option, and it’s the closest spot to the actual terminals. It takes around five minutes to get to Terminal 1 and Terminal 2 on the free shuttle bus that operates for 24-hours a day.

How Much Does It Cost?

If you book your spot on arrival, it will cost you a daily gate rate of €9.50, with cheaper rates available online and in advance. Express Red houses 7,000 spaces, including 50 set aside for people with reduced mobility.

Where Is Express Green Located?

During busy times of the year, the long-stay options for Dublin Airport are increased with the opening of its Express Green car park. With enough space for 2400 vehicles, Express Green offers easy access to both terminals, with the always-running shuttle bus transfer time taking five minutes.

How Much Does It Cost?

Available only from May through to September, the Express Green parking service also costs €9.50 per day – although better rates are available online.

Where Is Holiday Blue Located?

The last of the Dublin Airport long-stay parking options is the Holiday Blue Car Park. The shuttle bus transfer time is still only ten minutes, however, so if you are considering a fortnight’s holiday, you can save a significant amount of money in parking charges by using Holiday Blue.

How Much Does It Cost?

The Holiday Blue parking option has 8000 spaces, and while it is a little further out than the Express options, it is a lot cheaper – day rates are €7.50, although you can get better rates online.

Are There External Options?

There are lots of third party parking options located in Dublin Airport’s vicinity. Many hotels, for example, also offer parking options for travellers, and prices can vary wildly. For example, the Metro Hotel offers a day rate from as little as €4 a day, and you can get a similar price at the Clayton Hotel. Both parking options are between 5-10 minutes away from Dublin Airport and offer free shuttle transfers included in the price.


Finally, don’t forget to make your booking online – wherever you want to use for your Dublin Airport long-term parking, it will be cheaper. Also, allow plenty of time to get from the parking lot to the airport. While shuttle buses only take 5-10 minutes, it’s important to arrive at least 40 minutes before your check-in time to allow for any issues.
