The Points Guy just posted that flights to Dublin from various US cities, primarily New York, Boston, Chicago (from what I’ve found) are pricing out between around $400-$500 for a round-trip flight! Some of the cheaper flights might require a layover, but they are not too bad.
These cheap fares are primarily on Delta and US Airways (although there are some United fares from Chicago). These cheap fares start as early as Labor Day and go into 2013. Christmas in Dublin anyone? Christmas week for less then $500 is pretty dam good! Since the non-stop is about 7 hours from New York, this can make a great long weekend getaway! Also, form what I’ve heard, the Radisson Blu properties in Ireland are pretty good. Might be a good opportunity to put your Club Carlson points to some use!
Anyone jumping on this deal?!
