Update: Some offers mentioned below are no longer available. View the current offers here
Airfare deals are typically only available on limited dates. We recommend you use Google Flights to find dates to fly, then book through an online travel agency, such as Orbitz or Expedia, which allows you to cancel flights without penalty by 11pm Eastern Time within one day of booking. However, if you’re using the American Express Platinum Card, you’ll need to book directly with the airline or through Amex Travel portal to get 5x MR points. Remember: Fares may disappear quickly, so book right away and take advantage of Orbitz or Expedia’s courtesy cancellation if you’re unable to get the time away from work or family.
Norwegian is currently offering some great flight deals to Ireland starting at just $227 round-trip. Fly from East Coast cities Providence (PVD) and Newburgh (SWF) to destinations across the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland including Shannon (SNN), Dublin (DUB), Belfast (BFS) and Cork (ORK). These fares are widely available but are particularly open from September through October 2017 and again from December 2017 through January 2018. Keep in mind that Norwegian charges extra for checked bags, so spare your wallet and pack light.
As is often the case with Norwegian Air, the best deals are found by booking outbound and return flights separately. Use Google Flights to find the dates that work with you, and then complete booking directly through the carrier.
