Why It's a Deal A recent Kayak search shows the lowest round-trip airfare between New York City and Dublin starts from $603 in late November (Delta Airlines). Add to that $81 per person including taxes for one night at The Heritage Golf & Spa Resort, $392 per person including taxes for two nights at the Killarney Park Hotel, $242 per person including taxes for two nights at The G Hotel, and $65 per person including taxes for one night at the Croke Park Hotel, and you're already spending $1,383 on airfare and accommodation alone. For $384 less, this travel package gives you all the same perks, plus a seven-day manual economy car rental, and all taxes and fees.
More Upgrade your vehicle to an automatic economy car for from $100 more per couple, an automatic compact car for from $157 more per couple, or an automatic full-size car for from $304 more per couple, and add a GPS navigation system to your vehicle rental for $67 more per couple. Add an extra night at Dublin's Croke Park Hotel for from $75 more per person, or add on a two-night stay with an extension on the car rental and one night extra at The Heritage Golf & Spa Resort and Croke Park Hotel for from an extra $150 per person. See more of Ireland with tours of the House of Kildare Village, St. Patrick's Cathedral, and Kilkenny Castle—plus admission to the Cliffs of Moher and four full Irish breakfasts—for an extra $99 per person.
