Airport and arrival
The ACD Study Abroad staff will be the first of the hundred thousand welcomes you receive upon arriving in Dublin. Remember that flight arrangements are your responsibility. Some details to keep in mind:
Dublin International Airport, Dublin, Ireland (airport code DUB)
The published program start dates for all ACD Study Abroad programs coincide with dates of departure for students traveling from the U.S. Most airlines departing the U.S. arrange for overnight flights to Ireland. That means you will arrive in Dublin on the following day.
Getting from Dublin airport to your ACD accommodations
ACD Study Abroad will arrange up to two free airport transfers from the airport to the accommodations on the scheduled arrival date. Times for each free transfer are determined based on the arrival times of the participating students. We will provide you with more details regarding airport meeting points and transfer times before the beginning of each term.
Students who do not arrive for the free airport transfer will be responsible for their own transportation to the ACD campus or their accommodations. We will provide addresses and an emergency contact number before the start of the program. If requested, special pick-up arrangements may be made for an additional charge.
Although you will probably want to stay longer, all ACD Study Abroad programs do come to an end. Whether you are heading home immediately or spending some free time in Ireland or beyond, please keep the following details in mind:
Program end date and time
The published program end date marks the last day to move out of your accommodations. You must complete the housing check-out with the on-site staff by 10:00 am. Students who complete their coursework and required examinations before the program end date may make arrangements to complete the housing check-out earlier if desired.
Return flights and airport transfer
At the end of the program, you may decide to return to the U.S. immediately or travel independently in Ireland (or beyond) at your own expense. Either way, you are responsible for arranging your departing flight and getting to the Dublin airport. On-site staff can provide recommendations for your airport transfer.
