Plan my trip to Abu Dhabi with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

You can do a combination of flight and bus from Dublin to Abu Dhabi in 12.5 hours. Alternatively, you can do a combination of flight and bus. The time zone difference when traveling from Dublin to Abu Dhabi is 4 hours. Traveling from Dublin in September, things will get much warmer in Abu Dhabi: highs are around 47°C and lows about 34°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 20th (Mon) early enough to travel back home.
