Why It's a Deal A recent Kayak search shows the lowest round-trip airfare from New York City to Dublin starts at $564 in mid-January (United Airlines). Add to that $231 per person including taxes for three nights at the Ashling Hotel, $248 per person for three nights at the Meyrick Hotel including taxes, and $168 per person for a round-trip first class rail ticket between Dublin and Galway City, and you're spending $1,211. For $112 less, this travel package gives you all the same perks, plus a full Irish breakfast daily and all taxes and fees.
