Ireland is one of Europe’s most popular travel destinations, and for good reason. From the natural beauty of the landscape to its rich culture and history to the charming hospitality of its residents, Ireland should be on everyone’s bucket list.
And now, you can find dramatically discounted round-trip flights to Ireland on Aer Lingus. Aer Lingus — a popular Irish airline, second only to Ryan Air — is now offering round-trip flights as low as $399. Time to pack your bags!
From now until Oct. 3, you can take advantage of this incredible deal to book a flight into either Dublin Airport or Shannon Airport (located in County Clare in Ireland).
With the airline’s Go When Others Don’t deal, you can fly direct to the Emerald Isle out of East Coast cities, like Boston, New York City or Philadelphia, for $399 and up. Those flying from the West Coast or Canada will pay more, at $599 for a round-trip for flight, and Midwesterners in places like Chicago and Minneapolis will pay between $459 to $499.
As you might imagine from the name of the deal, there are some restrictions on your travel dates. You must book your flights for dates between Nov. 1, 2019, and March 31, 2020, which is generally considered the off-season for Ireland travel.
Yes, the weather during these months will be colder and grayer, but the beauty of the Irish countryside shines through even the foggiest and chilliest months. In fact, you can even see the northern lights in Ireland if you travel during December!
And, if you plan to stay in bustling Dublin or other urban centers like Cork or Limerick, you can enjoy shopping, museums, restaurants and, of course, castles (such as the famous Blarney Castle), even if the sun isn’t shining. Besides, cold weather will only give you more reason to get cozy in a traditional Irish wool sweater.
Some restrictions apply. Check out the Aer Lingus website for more information and to book your flights.
As they say in Ireland, “Go dté tú slán!” (Safe travels!)
