This thread is marked as being about Dublin Airport

Good morning folks! I will be flying from London to Dublin and then from Dublin to New York. No checked luggage, one carry-on bag ,and 1 h 15 m to connect. I would not be worried much, but I heard I have to go through the Irish passport control upon arrival and then I have to clear US immigration and customs before boarding the plane. I will be flying ryan air from London to Dublin and United from Dublin to New York. Has anyone done it? Is it enought time? Thanks

Despite their other faults, Ryanair are known for being on time. For a small fee, you can book a reserved seat near the front exit so be among the first off.

US Customs and Border Protection is in Terminal 2, and you will be arriving at Terminal 1 so must take the walkway between terminals.

Expect to do a fair bit of walking to immigration, to T2, to USCBP and to plane, and some waiting. If there are no unexpected problems you should be OK.
