Why It's a Deal A recent Kayak search shows the lowest multicity round-trip airfare between New York City, Dublin, and Shannon start at $595 in mid-January (Lufthansa). Add to that $61 per person including taxes for two nights at The Ardmore Hotel, $32 per person including taxes for one night at the Aspect Hotel Kilkenny $101 per person including taxes for two nights at Dooley's Hotel; $52 per person including taxes for one night at the Maldron Hotel Cork, $81 per person including taxes for two nights at the Holiday Inn Killarney, and $60 per person for two nights at the Travelodge Limerick Ennis Road, and you're already spending $982 on airfare and accommodation alone. For just $77 more than that, this travel package also throws in a nine-day manual car rental and includes all taxes and fees.
