If you think it’s not the best time to visit Ireland, think again! Continental Airlines is offering bargain-basement pricing on flights to Dublin, Ireland, now through February, 2012. Their price on selected dates is $393. The fare itself is just $90. The rest is taxes and fees. Air Canada is matching the fare, but because it makes an additional stop, the cost jumps to $438. This is still quite a bargain!
Other airlines are offering fares in excess of $600.
Dublin, city of Guiness and fish and chips, has a history dating back over 1,000 years, when it was a small Viking settlement. Now it’s a city of castles and cathedrals, with museums and galleries that are sure to be less crowded this time of year. See the Book of Kells at Trinity College library, do a literary pub crawl, and visit the James Joyce Museum in a Martello Tower, and top it all off with a stop at the Dublin Writers Museum. Visit the Guiness Storehouse and Old Jameson Distillery, and don’t miss the Butlers Chocolate Experience.

This fare could disappear at any time, so act quickly.
