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 Platinum Card® from American Express, you’ll need to book directly with the airline or through the 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.
Flights to Dublin are pretty cheap right now from several US cities in the Northeast, as well as from some other scattered US cities. Starting at $270, you can now fly round-trip to Dublin (DUB) from Baltimore (BWI), Boston (BOS), Hartford (BDL), New York (JFK, LGA, EWR, SWF), Philadelphia (PHL), Providence (PVD), Seattle (SEA), Tampa (TPA) and Washington, DC (IAD). The deals seem to be valid for travel dates between September 2018 through May 2019.
Some airlines that the deal applies to, like WOW Air, are low-cost carriers. Brace yourself for added fees on those carriers, but keep in mind that the prices still have significant savings despite the additions.
To book, head to Google Flights and enter your origin and destination cities. Scroll through dates to find a price you like in tandem with a time that corresponds with your schedule. Then, you can book directly with the airline through Google Flights.
