$324 WAS – DUB leaving May 8th, staying 6 nights
I just got May 5-12th for $323!
@Harlan – nice! have a great trip.
@Bree – have a great trip.
Tickets from Salt Lake to Dublin are also in the $530 range, at least some dates in April are showing that.
There’s no such airport as WAS. Assuming this is from Dulles (IAD). DCA doesn’t have too many intl flights.
@DC – WAS is the code that encompass both IAD, DCA and BWI. Like NYC is for JFK, LGA, EWR.
LAX – Moscow for $474 4/29 – 5/6
April 24 – May 1 for $411. Thanks TFD!! Is 6 full days enough to explore Dublin and its surrounding areas? 😀
@Mr. D – yes. you should be fine.
Thanks, TheFlightDeal! Just booked a trip for my girlfriend’s birthday May 3-13 WAS-DUB. Round trip flights DUB-CDG are only ~$130/person so I think we’re going to do 4 nights in Dublin and 5 nights in Paris!
Forgot to add it was $323 round trip per person! Also thanks to Bree and Harlan for pointing out the dates for WAS.
have a great trip!
Thanks for the great deal from SFO to DUB. I added $48 on Ryanair and made it a roundtrip to London for a total of $460. Better than I ever could have imagined!!
@Hannah – nice. Just a general tip if you never have flown Ryanair, be mindful of their fees. Print your own boarding pass before heading to the airport, prepaid luggage etc. Otherwise, it will be an expensive checkin experience at the airport with them.
Agreed. Ryanair make all their money off you at the airport. I would say carry as little luggage with them as possible. Been caught off guard more than once. Happy travels otherwise!
ORD – ATH 5/2-5/12 for $650. Good deal? We hadn’t looked into our honeymoon but I’m thinking this could work…
Base Fare listed as a $1.00 USD, YR as $516.00 USD.
@ORD – yes. that’s cheaper than normal for May.
