Dublin, Ireland to New Haven is an approximately 14-hour combination of flight and car. You'll gain 5 hours traveling from Dublin to New Haven due to the time zone difference. When traveling from Dublin in October, plan for somewhat warmer days and about the same nights in New Haven: temperatures range from 22°C by day to 10°C at night. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 22nd (Tue) so you can go by car to Mystic.
