Have you always dreamt of joining in the freezing Christmas Day swim at the Forty Foot in Dublin or hoped to find yourself in the midst of the greatest St. Patrick’s Day session the Emerald Isle has to offer?

If so, you may want to jump on the latest offers from Aer Lingus, who are offering round-trip flights to Ireland from as little as $499 throughout the extended holiday period from Thanksgiving, through Christmas, New Year, and right up to March 17.

For the next two weeks, the Irish airline is inviting US residents to see Ireland for less, spend the important holidays with their Irish loved ones, or simply treat themselves with the holiday craic overseas.

Until Wednesday, September 14, at 7.00pm (Eastern Time) Ireland’s national airline will be offering incredible deals on its off-season, direct, transatlantic flights, bringing you from one of eight US airports to Dublin on the east coast of Ireland, or to Shannon airport on the west.

With limited seats available between November 1, 2016, and March 31, 2017, it’s the perfect time to take advantage of bargain flight prices along with the current extremely favorable exchange rate.

Sample roundtrip fares inclusive of taxes and fees available exclusively at Aerlingus.com:

  • Boston - Shannon ... $499
  • Chicago - Dublin ... $629
  • Hartford - Dublin ... $499
  • Los Angeles - Dublin ... $749
  • New York (JFK and Newark) - Dublin ... $499
  • San Francisco - Dublin ... $799
  • Washington D.C. - Dublin ... $579

Aer Lingus can also help you out once you arrive, thanks to the Vacation Store providing additional deals on air and land inclusive packages. Packages include the highly popular “Ireland’s Great Cities.” Starting at $699* per person, based on two people traveling, this package features roundtrip airfare, standard car rental and six nights' accommodations.

And don’t forget that Ireland is just the doorway to the rest of Europe with flights to other European cities also on sale.

This year has seen the largest expansion of the Aer Lingus Transatlantic network since they first commenced the service in 1958. As well as launching a new Dublin-Newark route on September 1, there are just weeks to wait before the inaugural flight between Dublin and Hartford, CT which will start off a new, four-times weekly service, and a direct Dublin – Los Angeles, route was started just last May.
