I recommend on checking the type of plane you'll be on as you'll be stuck in it for quite a long time. Don't forget to give seatguru a look see for the best and worst seats on the plane.

$143 for bag and seat each way so $286 extra

Reviews said book on tap websites to see fees not on other sites which don't show any fees until you get to airport and have to pay them

Ireland's not a great place to visit November to early December cold wet and not much to do.add $30 per day to rental car cost to get real price.

You will find hotels over priced but you might get deal due to low season

Anyone of Asian descent that has been to Ireland? Just wondering what's the attitude of the natives towards them.

Wouldn't it be cheaper for an Irish person to just stay put in Boston and Dublin respectively and get the same experience?

in a hindsight, (Based on our experience two weeks ago WOW!) I suggest you pay $100 or $200 more to get a proper direct flight that would not go down! Our Paris vacation screwed up 2 days prior to spring break and we ended up paying more than a direct flight ticket! :-)

An Asian (Korean) descent here. I've been to Ireland a few times alone for business. Last year, my daughter did 5 months study abroad in Dublin, and I took the whole family for a week to visit her there.

I have never experienced any negative attitudes there. Only the most friendly and lovely people, and we drove all over the place. Our family agrees that Ireland was magical and feels like a second home to us even though we are thoroughly Koreans. One of the most beautiful places we have been to, especially once you get out of the urban areas like Dublin and Galway and explore the countryside and the sea shores. We wouldn't hesitate to go back at the first opportunity we have which explains my presence on this thread Smilie.

To get this price you will have a 14+ hour layover in Lisbon on your inbound flight.
You inbound flight will be 25 hours in total.
However, that is better than having that 25 hours on the outbound leg.

Better yet, save up and spend a couple hundred dollars extra for a direct flight June-Sep if the reason for travel is a vacation. Dublin in the winter, along with long layovers, is not my idea of enjoyment.

If Norwegian Airlines still have the route by then, Its usually cheaper to fly from Providence TF Green, $99 each way a lot of the time

FWIW we had a couple day stopover in Dublin (built free stopover via Aer Lingus coming back from London) January 1-3 and had an excellent time.

Dublin is actually pretty mild winter-wise- the average low never goes below freezing in any month and daytime temps in dead of winter are typically in the 45-50 degree F range which is just fine with a decent jacket.



Museum of Archeology, Museum of Natural History, National Gallery, Little Museum of Dublin, and the Teeling distillery were all open on NY day too which was nice...

Jan 2 we saw the Book of Kells, St. Patricks Cathedral, the Marsh Library, Jameson distillery, and Irish mummies at St Michans.

Also hung out at this place for a while with an insane whiskey menu-

Just did Ireland during spring break. we did AA/BA on a 777 from TX to London. Smaller jumper to Dublin. Paid $440. 1 big bag and 2 onboard (pretty liberal carry on/personal bag policy). For most part, pretty smooth. Word of warning if you rent a car: get an SUV (back roads flood) and get the insurance for the car through, ideally your personal ins., or a third party. Ins. at the counter is highway robbery.

I thought the weather in March was a bit too cold (albeit coming from a Texan); I would not go in winter,

BA has what is probably the most liberal carry-on policy of European airlines.

"Ins. at the counter is highway robbery"
That is always the case, everywhere.
Use a CC that provides rental car insurance AND is the primary insurance provider for that.

That's pretty much just Chase Sapphire (Reserve or Preferred, with reserve having somewhat better coverage)- which does primary car rental insurance as a free benefit.


(Amex offers it as a pay-per-rental additional cost, but they explicitly exclude ireland)
