How to travel to Brest

Many direct flights to Brittany from Ireland and the UK operate mainly during the spring/summer. These flights are normally announced in the new year, closer to spring. They are usually operated by Aer Lingus, Ryanair and Easy Jet. In the meantime, we have listed other flights and transport which operate all-year round below. You can check the most up-to-date information on the airlines’ websites, or on the Brest airport website []. 
UPDATE 9th February 2024: there are now direct flights from Dublin to Brest in May–June 2024; see [].
The other closest airports are Rennes [] and Nantes []. Both of these cities are linked to Brest by trains and buses (for which see below). 
There might also be flights to Lorient in the spring/summer [], or Quimper [], so do check their websites closer to the conference. Lorient and Quimper are closer to Brest than Rennes and Nantes, and they are linked to Brest by trains and buses as well.

If coming from mainland Europe, you can take buses or trains, e.g. Flixbus []. The French train company is called SNCF, and tickets can be booked on: []. The BlaBlaCar carpool company also offers buses [].

If coming from outside of Europe, the easiest is probably to fly into Paris, and then either take the train/bus (see below) or a connection flight direct to Brest from Paris.
