Best way to travel from Dublin to southern France

Jump to last reply

We will be in Ireland in August and have an apartment rented in the Provence area for September. We are trying to decide how best to travel between the two places. Air France has flights to both Marseille and Nice, but I'm not sure if a 50 minute layover at CDG is long enough. I read elsewhere on the Forum that it can take up to 3 hours to get through border security when flying from one EU country to another. Has anyone experienced this? My hubby thinks that if AF is willing to schedule flights with only 50 minutes of transfer time that it must be okay. Is he right? Aer Lingus has a non-stop flight to Marseille, but it leaves at 5:55 am so is not our preferred time. I have also read that AL has lots of extra fees that up the price of the seemingly low cost fare.

We could also fly to Paris and take the TGV to Avignon, which is very close to our destination. We can't see times/fares yet, though. Has anyone done this? How much time should we allot between arrival in Paris and leaving on the train from the CDG station? How about on the return--how much time between arrival on the train at CDG to departure on a plane back to Dublin?

The tickets for the RT flight from the US to Ireland are already booked, so we need to work around that schedule. I wasn't expecting the rest of the trip to be more complicated that making all the other reservations!
