Why It's a Deal A recent Kayak search shows the lowest round-trip airfare between New York City and Dublin starts from $540 in late January (United Airlines). Add to that $37 per person for the two-day hop-on hop-off sightseeing bus tour of Dublin, $257 per person including taxes for three nights at the Ballsbridge Hotel, $119 per person including taxes for two nights at the Travel Inn Killarney, and $52 per person including taxes for one night at the Clarion Hotel Limerick, and you're already spending $1,005 on airfare and accommodations. For $594 more than that, this travel package gives you all the same perks, plus an extensive touring program, and covers all transportation and transfers within Ireland, several meals, and all taxes and fees.
