Top 5 airlines serving from Ireland to Germany

Booked connecting flights with KlM. My serving flight was the furthest part of the airport. On arrival in Zurich. My two cases arrived but only one carry on belong to my son. His three suitcase didn't arrive. After enquiring we discovered they were still in Amsterdam. We landed at 11.12. We eventually left the airport just after one.

no issues at all... Kudos to the food. This time was really really good

Overall a good experience. We were disappointed when we had to check our carry on due to the plane being full. KLM hadn’t notified us and we had valuable items in the carry on but they still made us check it. Some of the food was great and some was mediocre. Crew is really kind and funny.

It was nice to be on a legacy airline, people try at least.

The flight itself it was great nice food the crew were very nice and helpful, Checking in from Birmingham wasn't great long queues for bag dropped, And I had my hand luggage case taken away from me even though I requested to have it with me as I had breakables items. I was told I can not because of the length of the flight with no explanation at all no options was given for me to take my fragile items out of my case it was taken away with hold buggage I find the staff member who was checking me in very unpleasant !! Can we please be advise if the rules have changed about the the carry on hand luggage it will be easier to be advise on booking your tickect if we not allowed to take the hand luggage with me. Overall I had a good flight .

The boarding was one of the worst I’ve ever experienced. The fault lays on Ohare Airport and not so much the airline. The waiting area by the gate was the size to accommodate a regional flight for 20-30 people and right next to a busy walkway. When you cramped nearly 300 passengers into that space is was unbearable.

Well, in my case; the flight was delayed 1 hour, we have to wait in the plane to get green light. And the plane (probably because was a short trip) did not have entertainment or WiFi. No a good experience.

The seats are too cramped in that plane. If you’re above 1,80m consider alternatives or first class I guess… There were no emergency exits to seat somewhere with more legroom

one of my bags was drenched with fish smelling water and all my new clothes bought at dublin and the 23kg checked in bag were all gone waste with very pungent fish smell and also having stains

At the transit could be less time not like 12 hour 6 hours the mix should be 4 hour, thanks

They should. Heck planes more often not when they are suppose to be leaving causing delays

Crew was fantastic got lovely food and plenty of water. Entertainment was good. Never had to ask for anything. Left on time and got to Seattle early. Luggage did not take long either.

Always find Aer Lingus reliable and good value for money. Food on this flight was pretty basic and the headphone Jack at my seat only worked for one ear. Little disappointed in movie selection, limited on recent releases. Staff are okay - but I always buy a cheap ticket so not like I expect first class opulence anyway!!!

Boarding was so quick, flight was ahead of time which is great and the pilot spoke clearly and was letting people know everything, amazing, love travelling with you 😊

Great hospitality and service! Seats could always be cushioned better.

Excellent long haul experience really enjoyed using Dublin pre-immigration

Nice easy flight. Crew was very nice and of all the times I have bought a seat for my guitar - this was the easiest. They were prepared and no problems at all.

Air Lingus flights were delayed on each of the three flights we took. Not a very good , and organized airline.

Flight was ontime, clean, staff was friendly - there was turbulence but can’t avoid that (it’s a flight 😉)! The staff were attentive but would be nice if Aerlingus didn’t charge for coffee ☺️ but overall I enjoyed my flight experience and will travel with them again (Ireland’s Four star airline

We did not have a flight when we arrived at Dublin Airport. It took an hour of time for Aer Lingus to fix it. We booked our groups seats together but did not get to sit together after the mix up. The airline did nothing to apologize for the mistake. Wouldn't fly that airline again.

Good experience. Food was great and passengers helped rearrange seats so our family could be seated together

Didn't have bar code on our phone based boarding pass. People at the counter didn't notice. We walked to security, couldn't get through, had to go back to check in to get a paper boarding pass.

I got an email from Lufthansa saying that because the flight was full, I could check my cabin bag for free. When I tried to do that, I got charged $75 because it was 'overweight'. Other people who did not check their bags didn't get their bags (that were much larger than mine) weighed. Nor were they denied boarding. This is a scam, right? Expect to see this review EVERYWHERE!

Great seats assigned and comfortable, movies are good, food is delicious, great experience. No delays and they prioritize boarding children with parents which is plus.

Unfortunately, the flight departure was delayed over one hour due to the aircraft used arriving late. Boarding was tedious because of the transit bus taking us to a remote area of the tarmac. Once aboard the crew was very accommodating and did well under more stress than usual. Turbulence caused a delay in meal service. Flight Attendant Anson was very helpful, respectful, and attentive to me and others around me. To be very clear, this was a code share flight on United, UA 181. They were very clear to us all to let those customers with a shortened layover time to their connecting flight to be allowed to exit first.

they canceled my flight and we’re absolutely atrocious and helping me rebook

My flight was canceled. New flight is 40 hours later and I still didn’t get the flight from Frankfurt to Zagreb.

All flights cancelled with no way to reach the airline

It never happened. The flight was canceled because of ground crew strikes in Germany.

Great service. The flight was in great condition and the staff was very cheerful.

We checked in 4 luggage and only got 3 back & lost our 4th luggage. Our flight was from berlin sept 22. We arrived Copenhagen but only received 3 luggage. Missing 1 still 24 hrs after our arrival and our Cruise will be leaving tomorrow 9/24/2023. This is the second time that our luggage gets lost/delayed in Copenhagen

No food on plane.. flights scheduled 55 min..everything is very expensive on aeroport

Filthy plane, obviously not cleaned properly between flights, food crumbles in seat and carpet

Smallest seat I have ever seen. And they had a label with more Legroom but in fact where really tiny.

No cancellations but one flight delayed due to arrival airport industrial action. Comfortable

I was held-up at boarding by rude employee who insisted that I had to wait until all other passengers had boarded the lane before issuing me a boarding pass so I can board the plane. I could not check-in earlier and get a boarding pass since I had flown directly from Dusseldorf.

Everything’s went straight forward, no issues, good service and friendly crew

Ryanair is the worst airline in Europe and easily one of the worst in the planet

Flights were on time. The crew was efficient and friendly.

While this flight from Dublin to Venice boarded on time, its departure was delayed by about an hour because, apparently, there were no demonstration kits on board, and we couldn't depart until the safety demonstration was completed. We were informed that we were in danger of losing our delayed slot if Ryanair engineering didn't provide the kits 'soon', which would have resulted in an additional two-hour delay. Thankfully, we didn't incur that additional delay. It's not clear where the source of this problem lies but it needs to be addressed to ensure it does not recur for other flights in the future.

Usual RyanAir flight but disembarking was poor, no rear steps. The Faro Airport required lots of up step and down steps, no elevator Getting through passport control took 50 minutes in the EU line

A normal Ryanair flight = too many announcements to sale something, hard landing. Otherwise, good value for money

I didn't like. The seats and the floor were very dirty and it is not the first time

Flight was delayed due to weather so not much Ryanair could do about that - otherwise it was very efficient and smooth

Boarding was chaotic, the gate changed 4 times and we took off 1 hour late

Then some of them showed up at the gate later for boarding. Great. The flight was mediocre. The seats were small with little leg room. The screens kept coming on when we were trying to sleep and wouldn’t shut off. I know we paid far less than first class but does that mean we should be shoved in there??

New requirements for Americans traveling to Europe postponed until 2025

Visitors who now travel visa-free will need to get approval prior to departure.

Americans eyed upcoming travel to European destinations slightly differently due to news of a requirement that was set to start in 2024 for U.S. passport holders. But now, EU officials have postponed the European Travel Information and Authorisation System ( ETIAS ) launch until spring of 2025.

SchengenVisaInfo.com, a website dedicated to the world's largest visa-free zone where 27 European countries abolished their internal borders known as the Schengen Area, first reported that an EU official confirmed ETIAS won't go live until May 2025, "due to continued delays with the introduction of the related Entry-Exit System (EES), which needs to be operational before ETIAS can be implemented."

An official for the European Union did not immediately respond to ABC News' request for comment.

What to know about ETIAS for US travelers

If you previously traveled to Europe without a visa, you will now need to apply for authorization through the ETIAS , before visiting.

PHOTO: Tourists with umbrellas to protect themselves from the sun at Colosseo area (Colosseum), during the ongoing heat wave with temperatures reaching 40 degrees, on July 19, 2023, in Rome.

Today, American travelers have visa-free access to 184 global destinations, according to the Henley Passport Index . And while the U.S. passport is currently ranked eighth-most powerful passport to own, that could be set to shift when the European Union adds its new documentation requirements for U.S. visitors.

The application form, which will be available on the official ETIAS website as well as a mobile application, has a fee of 7 euros or $7.79 U.S. dollars. All communication is done by email.

Once you are approved for travel, the authorization entitles visitors to stay in European countries that require ETIAS for up to 90 days within any 180-day period and travelers must be in possession of a valid ETIAS during their entire stay.

MORE: New warning issued for rebooking air travel after delays, cancellations

According to ETIAS, most applications should be processed within minutes, but in case an application takes longer, decisions will be sent within four days or up to 14 days if the applicant is asked to provide additional documentation.

The European Union encourages travelers to apply for an ETIAS authorization "well in advance of your planned journey."

Confirmation of application submission will be sent on email with a unique number that is needed for future reference.

PHOTO: In this undated file photo, a tourist visa is stamped on a passport.

Upon receiving ETIAS travel authorization, travelers are to ensure that their name, passport number and other information is correct because any mistake will prevent them from crossing the border.

If an application is refused, the email will include the reasons for the decision along with information about how to appeal.

ETIAS travel authorization is valid for three years, according to the EU, or until the travel document you used in your application expires, whichever comes first.

MORE: European heat wave breaking records with little relief in sight

The ETIAS authorization is linked to a person's travel document -- such as a U.S. passport -- and both documents will be needed to board a flight, bus or ship to enter any of the European countries that require ETIAS.

Similar to international border requirements with a passport, the ETIAS authorization doesn't guarantee automatic right of entry. "Border guards will verify that you meet the entry conditions" and anyone who does not meet the conditions "will be refused entry," according to the EU.

If you are a German visa holder and planning to travel to Ireland, there are certain restrictions and conditions you need to be aware of. Ireland, like many countries, has its own visa policy and requirements for entry.

  • Visa Exemption: First and foremost, it's important to note that German citizens do not require a visa for short stays in Ireland. You can enter the country and stay for up to 90 days without a visa. However, you will need to present a valid passport upon arrival as proof of your nationality.
  • Length of Stay: As mentioned above, you can stay in Ireland without a visa for up to 90 days. If you plan to stay longer than that, you will need to apply for a visa or a residence permit. It's essential to comply with the immigration rules and not overstay your allowed period of stay.
  • Travel Documentation: While a visa is not required, you will still need to carry certain travel documents with you. These include a valid passport, proof of accommodation, proof of sufficient funds to cover your stay, and a return ticket or evidence of onward travel. It's always a good idea to have these documents readily available during your journey.
  • COVID-19 Restrictions: Currently, due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, there may be additional restrictions or requirements in place for travelers. It is essential to stay updated with the latest travel advisories and guidelines issued by the Irish government. This includes possible testing and quarantine requirements.
  • EU Settlement Scheme: If you plan to stay in Ireland for a more extended period, you may need to consider the EU Settlement Scheme. The scheme allows EU citizens, including Germans, to apply for settled or pre-settled status in the country. This status grants the right to live, work, and study in Ireland beyond the initial 90-day visa-free period.
  • Health Insurance: It is advisable to have comprehensive health insurance coverage when traveling to Ireland. While Germany and Ireland are both part of the European Union and offer reciprocal healthcare agreements, it's always better to have insurance that covers medical emergencies, accidents, and any unforeseen circumstances.
  • Additional Entry Requirements: Depending on your purpose of visit, you may need to fulfill additional entry requirements. For example, if you are traveling for business purposes, you may need to provide a letter of invitation from a company in Ireland. If you are a student, you may need to show proof of enrollment in an Irish educational institution.

It's crucial to note that visa requirements and conditions can change over time, so it's always recommended to check the official websites of the Irish embassy or consulate in Germany for the most up-to-date information. Planning ahead and being aware of the specific restrictions and conditions will help ensure a smooth and hassle-free trip to Ireland for German visa holders.

Can H4 Visa Holders Travel Outside the US?

If you hold a German visa and are planning to travel to Ireland for tourism purposes, you may be wondering if your visa is valid for this purpose. In general, a German visa allows you to enter and travel within the Schengen Area, which includes many European countries, including Germany. However, Ireland is not a member of the Schengen Area, so different rules apply.

Ireland operates its own separate visa system and has its own set of entry requirements. While the German visa may facilitate your travel to other Schengen countries, it does not automatically entitle you to enter Ireland for tourism purposes.

To visit Ireland as a tourist, you will typically need to apply for a separate tourist visa from the Irish embassy or consulate in your home country. This visa is specific to Ireland and allows you to visit the country for tourism purposes. The application process will require you to provide certain documents, such as a valid passport, proof of travel insurance, and evidence of sufficient funds to support yourself during your stay.

It is important to note that the visa requirements for Ireland may vary depending on your nationality. Some countries have visa waiver agreements with Ireland, allowing their citizens to enter without a visa for a certain period. For example, citizens of the United States can enter Ireland for tourism purposes without a visa and stay for up to 90 days.

If you are unsure about the visa requirements for visiting Ireland, it is best to check with the Irish embassy or consulate in your home country. They will be able to provide you with the most up-to-date information and guide you through the visa application process.

In conclusion, your German visa is generally not valid for entering Ireland for tourism purposes. To visit Ireland as a tourist, you will need to apply for a separate tourist visa specific to Ireland. It is important to check the visa requirements for your nationality and consult with the Irish embassy or consulate in your home country for accurate information.

Traveling to Colombia with a Schengen Visa: What You Need to Know

If you hold a German visa and are planning to travel to Ireland, you may be wondering if there is a limit on the duration of stay. The answer to that question depends on the type of visa you have.

There are several types of visas available for German citizens visiting Ireland, including short-term visas and long-term visas. Short-term visas, also known as visitor visas or tourist visas, allow individuals to stay in Ireland for up to 90 days. These visas are typically issued for tourism, business meetings, or visiting friends and family.

If you are planning to stay in Ireland for longer than 90 days, you will need to apply for a long-term visa. Long-term visas are generally granted for specific purposes, such as working, studying, or joining family members who are already residing in Ireland. The duration of stay allowed on a long-term visa will depend on the specific circumstances and purpose of your visit.

For example, if you are applying for a work visa, the duration of stay will typically be determined by the length of your employment contract. If you are applying for a study visa, the duration of stay will be based on the length of your course of study. Family visas may allow for long-term stays if you are joining a family member who is already living in Ireland as a resident or citizen.

It is important to note that the duration of stay mentioned on your visa is not an automatic guarantee of entry into Ireland for the entire duration. Immigration officers at the port of entry have the authority to grant or deny entry based on their assessment of your travel plans and whether they believe you will comply with the terms of your visa.

If you wish to extend your stay in Ireland beyond the duration mentioned on your visa, you will need to apply for an extension before your current visa expires. The application process for a visa extension can vary depending on the type of visa you have, and it is advisable to consult with the Irish Naturalisation and Immigration Service (INIS) for specific instructions.

In conclusion, there is a limit on the duration of stay in Ireland for German visa holders, but the exact limit will depend on the type of visa you have and the purpose of your visit. Short-term visas allow for stays of up to 90 days, while long-term visas are granted for specific purposes and may allow for longer stays. It is important to adhere to the terms of your visa and consult with the relevant immigration authorities if you need to extend your stay in Ireland.

Can H1B Visa Holders Travel to Dubai from US?

Traveling to Ireland with a German visa is a relatively simple process, but there are still a few additional documents and permits that you may need to have in order to ensure a smooth trip. This article will outline the necessary requirements and explain the process for obtaining any additional documents or permits.

One of the first things you will need to do when traveling to Ireland with a German visa is to ensure that your visa is still valid during your planned stay. As an EU citizen, you are generally allowed to stay in Ireland for up to 90 days without a visa, but it is always a good idea to double-check the requirements for your specific situation.

In addition to a valid visa, you will also need a valid passport. Your passport should be valid for the entirety of your planned stay in Ireland. If your passport is set to expire soon, it is recommended to renew it before traveling to avoid any potential complications.

If you are planning to drive in Ireland, you will also need to have a valid driver's license. In most cases, a German driver's license is accepted in Ireland. However, if you are planning to stay in Ireland for an extended period or if you are planning to work in Ireland, you may need to exchange your German driver's license for an Irish one. This can usually be done at a National Driver Licence Service office in Ireland.

If you are traveling to Ireland for business purposes or if you will be conducting any work-related activities during your stay, you may need to obtain an employment permit. This may be required even if you are not planning to work for an Irish employer. The exact requirements for an employment permit can vary depending on the nature of your work and the length of your stay, so it is recommended to contact the Irish Naturalisation and Immigration Service (INIS) for more information.

If you are traveling to Ireland with a German visa but you are not an EU citizen, you may need to obtain a visa in addition to your German visa. The exact requirements for a visa can vary depending on your nationality, so it is recommended to contact the Irish embassy or consulate in your home country for more information.

Finally, it is always a good idea to carry a copy of your visa, passport, and any additional documents with you when traveling. This can help to speed up any immigration or customs processes and can provide proof of your legal status in Ireland if needed.

In conclusion, traveling to Ireland with a German visa requires a valid visa and passport. Depending on your specific situation, you may also need a valid driver's license, an employment permit, or a visa if you are not an EU citizen. It is important to double-check the requirements for your specific situation and to carry copies of your documents with you when traveling. By following these steps, you can ensure a smooth and hassle-free trip to Ireland.
