Connecting from Ireland?

Hey all,

Looking at flights looks to Berlin like cheapest way is to go through Aer Lingus with a stop over in Dublin first. There's a very short (2 hour) layover between changing planes was wondering if that would be enough time? Do I have to go through customs in Ireland? Or in Germany?

I've used Aer LIngus through Dublin to get to Duessseldorf. It was very easy. We had a 1 hour 45 minute change time. I had time to find an ATM and get EURs, buy a cup of coffee. After getting off the plane in Dublin, we walked down a hallway, and at one point, there was a split and an airport employee directed us one way to the terminal for flights to Europe, and another direction for people going to Dublin baggage claim and flights to elsewhere in Ireland. I don't recall any passport check. You get that when you land in Berlin along with picking up your luggage and going through customs (just waking out the "nothing to declare" door).

The cheap connection is from Dublin to Szczecin, my city that is in Poland, but it is not far away from Berlin (2 hours by train or bus). You can consider 'Solidarity Szczecin–Goleniów Airport'

You can defeat the way by train or bus directly from the airport or with a stop in Szczecin
