I love Dublin – and not just because my name is Brian Kelly. It’s a charming and fun city that works as a great weekend destination from the east coast. The flight is just 600 miles longer than JFK to San Francisco, so it’s one where I can handle sitting in economy comfort if the price is right.

And luckily Delta is offering fares as low as $379 total roundtrip from JFK this fall and $421 from Boston (check your city to see if low fares abound). . US Airways and AA are also offering low fares per this Flyertalk thread.

To search weekend Delta trips, go to -> Planning tools (top of the screen) -> Book a flight. Enter your city details and then select the box for “My Dates are Flexible” and then select Flexible Weekend Travel and the Month. I saw the $387 fare on two weekends in November.

Flexible Date Search- surprisingly efficient on

Check for the weekends with the lowest fares – which includes Thanksgiving.

$387 JFK-DUB total roundtrip.

Remember, Diamond and Platinum Medallions get free Economy Comfort for up to 8 companions and all Medallions can choose the exit rows (just note that the emergency exit slide protrudes greatly into the seat space of the window exit seats, so I’d avoid them at all costs).

Sample Economy Comfort Seats on JFK-DUB on the 757. Not glamorous, but more recline than regular coach seats.

You can also use ITA software here to search flexible dates and pull in prices on all carriers. Please feel free to share any good deals you find here so others can benefit! While these aren’t supreme mileage runs (roundtrip on the non-stop nets 6,359 MQMs), they are great getaway fares and I know a lot of TPG readers took advantage of them last time, because I flew with a bunch of you on the same flight back in February when fares were $379 roundtrip!

If staying in Dublin, I highly recommend the Westin – the location is superb and they treat SPG elite members very well. For things to do, check out my long weekend trip report.

    Westin?? Wouldn’t even be a top10 hotel in Dublin

  • Jason Gerdon

    Sweet deal. I wish DL had offers like this out of LAX (albeit to destinations in the Caribbean and Central/South America.)

  • thepointsguy

    Location is superb and you can use SPG points. What better points options do you recommend?

  • Pkeros

    No luck from DTW.

    Not in Dublin, but I’m really intrigued by the Radisson Blu “resorts” in Cork and other cities in the 28k range, or there’s some dirt cheap redemptions on Park Inns in Belfast that would be only a two hour train ride. This might be a nice use for all of the free nights points! We’re doing Ireland next summer or I would be all over this.

    Great find!

    Wanted to go to Dublin this year, so jumped on this deal.

    JFK-DUB Thu, Nov 22-Sun, Nov 25. Would be interested to know if any other TPG readers will be in Dublin over Thanksgiving weekend

    If you want to fly with AA, there is a cheap LGA-RDU-LHR-DUB route for $214.

    Awesome post! I currently live in Atlanta, but am from the NYC area so I’m going to loop a trip to Dublin into my travel home for Thanksgiving! Just booked ATL-JFK-DUB-JFK/EWR-ATL (2 separate bookings though) for $705 total!

  • Joefouche

    How about BA LAX-DUB premium economy only $1200, then upgrade with Avios?

  • Curious

    $214 all-in???

    Not SPG, but Four Seasons Dublin as well as The Merrion are two great hotels for unusually low prices (at least when I was there last year) on account of Ireland’s economy bottoming out.

    FS is a bit out of the way, but the Merrion is in a great location. Has an excellent bar (they do Jameson tastings led by the distillery master, I believe). The hotel itself is built into four old renovated townhouses along Merrion st. Real wood fireplace in the lobby / “sitting room”… one of Dublin’s best restaurants next door… it’s one of the few times I’d advocate going outside the world of loyalty programs. Very worth it.

    Also check out The Pig’s Ear for some great Irish food. Tiny restaurant on the second floor of what looks like a residential building on Nassau.

    I am not sure who would be interested but from Boston I was able to go to delta and price out a 20-30 hour layover in CDG. Favorite one was this to actually add 1 full sight seeing day:
    9/12 BOS -CDG direct arrives 11:25
    9/14 CDG-DUB via AMS departs 13:40
    9/18 DUB-BOS 1 stop
    base fare $194
    taxes $340
    total $535

    Went in on this with a good friend. Can’t wait! Thank you, Brian!

    We loved the Radisson Blu in Galway and Letterkenney. Got the Clarion’s in Sligo and Cork for 8,000 points/night. The Clarion IFSC in Dublin is 8,000 points until the end of the year – the 60 day booking window might be an issue though. It is a little out of the way, but the price was right!

  • Windycityf

    Already booked for September worth mentioning the Hilton Dublin Airport had really low rates like $60. Their is a bus stop across the street to take you to city center.

    Thanks! Took a long weekend via CDG in late September for an extra 2k MQM without really reducing my time in Dublin (will be my 1st time there).

  • Andrew

    Booked for Thanksgiving night through Monday! A little annoyed that the Westin does not have C&P option then. Round trip $387! Thanks
