Why It's a Deal A recent Kayak search shows the lowest round-trip airfare between New York City and Dublin starts at $592 in early May (US Airways). Add to that $108 per person including taxes for two nights at the Mespil Hotel, $119 per person including taxes for two nights at the Dromhall Hotel, and $130 per person including taxes for two nights at the Carlton Hotel Galway City, and you're spending $949 on airfare and accommodation alone. For just $260 more than that, this travel package gives you airfare and six nights in three Irish cities, plus a seven-day car rental, daily breakfast, and all taxes and fees.
