Plane Spotting Dublin

The Clarion Hotel Dublin Airport
500m from the terminal buildings and 10 miles from the city centre. A free shuttle bus is provided by the hotel.  
Location: *** The hotel is still in a good location as the best spotting point at Dublin airport is about a twenty minute walk from the hotel. You have to walk out of the airport and take an immediate right. Follow this road until you reach a T-Junction at the entrance to a cemetary. You will then see a very long road opposite the cemetary gates going around the perimiter of the airport. Follow this until you reach the viewing point although aircraft can easily be viewed and photographed from most points along this road which runs parallel to the main runway 28/10
Spotting: ***  Aircraft can be seen landing from certain rooms and should be able to be read off.
Photos: **
Aircraft can be seen landing but are probably too far away for a decent photograph but see location report above
Value: *** Twin rooms for a weekend stay are typically £55 per night. Midweek stays seem to be slightly cheaper.
Book:   Prices can be found here through the AGODA website
