Recently I had a few messages about deals to New York over St. Patrick’s Day so today’s deal of the day is Aer Lingus flights from Dublin (with a checked bag) and 6 nights in a 4* hotel with breakfast for €863 per person! If you travel light then it is possible to get this deal without a checked bag and it will cost €760 pp!
New York City comprises 5 boroughs sitting where the Hudson River meets the Atlantic Ocean, with Manhattan being the most famous borough. There is an endless list of things to see and do in Manhattan alone such as Times Square, Central Park, Empire State Building and Rockefeller Centre to name a select few. I would also recommend going to Brooklyn and seeing the iconic Brooklyn Bridge (best to walk from Brooklyn back to Manhattan for skyline views) or take the ferry to Staten Island and get up close to the Statue of Liberty (stand on the right hand side for the best views).
The St. Patrick’s Day Parade in New York is the largest and oldest parade in the world! It will take place on Tuesday the 17th of March. The parade takes place on 5th Avenue.
The flights are with Aer Lingus, leaving Dublin on Thursday the 12th of March and leaving New York on Wednesday the 18th of March, back into Dublin on the 19th of March. The flights are €313 return without a checked bag and €416 including a checked bag, I have included the checked bag in the overall cost so if you travel light it’s €100 cheaper!
