The city of Dublin offers plenty for seasoned travelers as well as those who are new to the European experience. For those of you who want to travel to the city on vacation, you can now catch one of the direct Aer Lingus flights from Washington, D.C. This new transatlantic service will open up a big number of travel options across Europe, making it even more convenient for Americans to visit Ireland.
The route, which launched on May 1, will see four flights a week jet off to the capital of the Irish Republic. From there, you can book yourself into one of the short-term rentals available or opt for a prolonged tour of the continent.
The airline is looking to grow its North American bases, and this route from Washington, D.C. to Dublin is the seventh transatlantic gateway they will operate. There are plans for further growth in the coming months, which will see an increase in the services it offers its U.S.-based customers.
The new options feature a daily San Francisco-to-Dublin flight, which increases services on the route from the current five weekly flights that operate. Further, there will be a boost to the New York-Dublin capacity with a third flight taking off each day during the key summer months. This will operate from June through August, departing at 12 noon with the Dublin return leaving at 7:50am.
These new additions from Aer Lingus provide great opportunities for travel throughout Europe. The airline now provides more than 70 onward connections once in Dublin, giving you easy access to destinations in Continental Europe and the UK.
