Why It's a Deal A recent Kayak search shows the lowest round-trip airfare from New York City to Dublin starts from $501 in mid-March (British Midland International). Add to that $162 per person including taxes for one night at Cardiff Lane, $270 per person including taxes for one night at Dromoland Castle, and $138 per person including taxes for one night at Croke Park Hotel, and you're already paying $1,071 before adding in three nights at bed-and-breakfasts. For $132 less than that, this package gives you airfare, two nights in Dublin, one night in an Irish castle, three nights in your choice of bed-and-breakfasts, three full Irish breakfasts, and all taxes and fees.

More Upgrade your vehicle to an automatic car for an extra $50 per person or for an extra $99 per person. Add on a package that includes daily Irish breakfasts, one dinner in Dublin, a car-size upgrade, a discount book containing over $600 in savings, a Waterford Crystal Tour, and an upgrade for a deluxe room at Dromoland Castle. Add an extra night at your choice of bed-and-breakfasts—with an extra day of rental-car use—for from $75 more per person, or splurge for the eight-night extension, giving you an extra night in a bed-and-breakfast and one additional night in Dublin—with another day of rental-car use—for from $150 per person.
