These reduced fares can be found for travel between November and March 2022. Christmas and New Year’s are excluded from the deal. Again, these are economy fares, so they come with restrictions on bags and seat selections, depending on the airline. So make sure to review the details carefully before you buy the ticket.

You can get discounted prices on an array of airlines, such as Air Canada (Star Alliance), American and British Airways (Oneworld), Delta (SkyTeam) and United (Star Alliance).

Airline: Air Canada, Air France, American Airlines, British Airways, Delta, KLM, Lufthansa and United.
Routes: ATL/AUS/BHM/BUR/BWI/CAK/EWR/JFK/SFO and many others to Dublin (DUB).
Cost: Lowest fares start at $335 round-trip for some routes.
Dates: November 2021-March 2022 (Christmas and New Year’s excluded).
Pay with: The Platinum Card® from American Express for 5x on airfare booked directly with the airline or through American Express Travel (on up to $500,000 on these purchases per calendar year),  the Citi Prestige® Card for 5x on airfare, the Citi Premier® Card or Chase Sapphire Reserve for 3x on air travel, the American Express® Gold Card for 3x on airfare when booked directly with the airline or through Amex Travel, or the Chase Sapphire Preferred Card for 2x on travel.

The information for the Citi Prestige Card has been collected independently by The Points Guy. The card details on this page have not been reviewed or provided by the card issuer.

The bulk of the best prices we saw were for travel in December and beyond, but there are some low prices in November on some routes. Here are a few examples of the round-trip fares to Dublin we found from the following cities:

  • Boston (BOS) from $335.
  • Burbank, California (BUR), from $440.
  • Las Vegas (LAS) from $491.
  • Newark (EWR) from $354.
  • New York City (JFK) from $340.
  • Seattle (SEA) from $457.
  • Washington, D.C. (DCA), from $441.
  • San Francisco (SFO) from $391.
  • Orlando (MCO) from $426.
  • Baltimore (BWI) $450.

As always, I’ll begin by pointing out the best deals we found, and they were for flights departing from the NYC area. This economy fare is one example from New York-JFK to Dublin on United’s worldwide partner, Aer Lingus. It comes with a free carry-on bag.

Boston to Dublin in late January will cost you just $335 round-trip, also on Aer Lingus.

Los Angeles to Dublin is also on sale for $440 for an economy seat that comes with a free carry-on.

Another nice West Coast bargain is from Seattle. An economy ticket from the Pacific Northwest to Ireland via United is just $449. You make one stop on the way, and two on the return flight — including one in Zurich — but that’s an incredible savings! Again, it all depends on the type of traveler you are and the flexibility you have. But if you don’t mind the extended layover, you could save a lot of money.

Orlando to Dublin with one stop on a United economy fare is just $441 right now. That comes with a free carry-on, and that’s about it, as this is United’s bare-bones offering.

We found the best availability in February for this route and many of the others, but December also has its bargains. So the more flexible you are about when you can travel, the better your options are.
