Why It’s a Deal A Kayak search for early April shows that round-trip airfare between New York and Dublin starts at $570 (BMI). Add to that $59 per person for one night at Dunboyne Castle Hotel, $210 per person for two nights at Lough Eske Castle, $178 per person for two nights at Glenlo Abbey, and $72 per person for one night at Fitzpatrick Castle, and you’re already spending $1,089 per person, including taxes and fees. For $40 less, this vacation package also includes car rental for the duration of your stay—a service worth nearly $150.

More Add daily breakfast, a spa treatment at the Dunboyne Castle Hotel, and room upgrades at Glenlo Abbey and Fitzpatrick Castle for $99 more per person. Extend your stay with two additional nights at the Muckross Park Hotel in Killarney, plus extended car rental, from $150 extra per person.
