Flights from the US to Ireland in mid-March can be a tough ticket. With St. Patrick’s Day on March 17th, prices around that date can be several hundred dollars more than usual, especially from the west coast. But today, February and March flights from San Francisco and Phoenix to Dublin are below $500 round trip in basic economy. From SFO that includes some flights surrounding St. Patrick’s Day: you can arrive in Ireland with time to explore before the festivities begin, and then rest up afterwards before returning home. Once you’re there, it’s easy to reach the city center from the airport, and there are plenty of good options for places to stay. (Phoenix has St. Patrick’s Day sale options as well, but with multiple stops and longer layovers you may not find those particular dates worth the savings.)

These flights are in basic economy; upgrading to main cabin will add $110 to the price round trip if offered. Still: it’s actually cheaper to fly from San Francisco and Phoenix on these dates to Dublin than it is from New York or Boston! Prices rise back to typical levels through the summer, but return to these prices in the fall. Still if you’re  interested in the spring pricing, this is definitely an “act now” kind of deal. I can’t imagine deals to Ireland for St. Patrick’s Day will be available for long.
