The state has three main international airports (Dublin, Shannon, and
Cork) that serve a wide variety of European and intercontinental routes
with scheduled and chartered flights. The national airline is Aer Lingus,
although low cost airline Ryan air is the largest airline. The route
between London and Dublin is the busiest international air route in
Europe, with 4.5 million people flying between the two cities in 2006.
Railway services are provided by Iarnród Éireann. Dublin is the centre of
the network, with two main stations (Heuston and Connolly) linking to
the main towns and cities. The Enterprise service, run jointly with
Northern Ireland Railways, connects Dublin with Belfast. Dublin has a
steadily improving public transport network of varying quality including
the DART, Luas, Bus service and an expanding rail network.
The road network is focused on Dublin, and motorways are currently being
extended to other major cities as part of the Transport 21 programme, which aims
to have a world-class motorway network in place by the end of 2010. By then most
of Ireland's main cities will be connected to Dublin with motorways or with nearmotorway standard roads. Dublin has been the focus of some other major projects,
such as the East-Link and West-Link toll-bridges, as well as the Dublin Port Tunnel.
Major by-pass projects are underway at
other cities and towns. The Jack Lynch
Tunnel under the River Lee in Cork was
a major project outside Dublin, and a
fourth crossing at Limerick under the
River Shannon (known as the Limerick
Tunnel) was officially opened to motorists
in July 2010. The motorways and national
routes (national primary roads and national
secondary roads) are managed by the
National Roads Authority. The rest of the roads (regional roads and local roads) are
managed by the local authorities in each of their areas. Regular ferry services
operate between Ireland and Britain, the Isle of Man and France.
