    I bought my ticket to return to the camino beginning on my birthday, April 17th. Now I have to find the best route to Estella from Dublin. Thoughts and suggestions appreciated.

    I think best of all is flight to Biarritz (Ryanair) ( it is 95€ for april 17th), then bus from Bayonne to Estella.

    Biarritz (Ryanair) checked today for 17th is 115 euro. Estella by public transport is about 5 hours .by car its about 2 1/4 hrs
    I would suggest check expressbourricot.com if they are transporting people to Pamplona then either start from there or taxi on.
    Dublin to Santander ( Ryanair ) 97 euro on the 18th. Public transport is about 5hrs probably better bu bus
    Dublin Bilbao 60 euro .public transport between 2 1/2 and 4 1/2 hrs depending on the type .
    would need some research on the Spanish side.

    Hi Mike

    You could also check out flights to Madrid. You can get a bus direct from Terminal 4 to Estella via Sorria or Via Logrono. Takes about 6 hour. The beauty of the Aer Lingus flight is that it gets in around 10.oo am and you have the rest of the day to get to Estella. You can check out google maps for directions etc.

    Good luck and Buen Camino.

    Greg

    Thanks for the info.

    I ended up using Aer Lingus to Madrid where I'll catch an overnight ALSA bus to Logrono and a local bus to Estella. I'll have a long layover (12 hrs) in Dublin so I booked an Airbnb to use during the day to catch up on sleep before heading to Madrid.
