Flights to Dublin/Belfast...help!!

Travel Forums Europe Flights to Dublin/Belfast...help!!

You guys have been such a big help in the past, so I'm back looking for some tips for a flight from Montreal to Dublin or Belfast that won't require me to give up my firstborn and sell the house. I've gone to every site I can think of (from Kayak to Cheap Tickets to everything in between) and I can't find a thing under $1,000 Canadian apiece (the dollar's gone all wonky again, so the exchange rate with the U.S. isn't great anymore).

Our dates are: May 13th to 24th. Not too flexible, since we've got 15 days off next year to carefully play with.

Anyone have any ideas? All help very welcome!

Thanks and two-cheek kisses to all.

I found a return trip with Air Transat, leaving the week of 11-17 May 2009, returning week of 18-24 of May, for 696 Canadian all inclusive.
Wow..now I even saw one leaving the 6ht, returning the 14th for only 596 Canadian all incl.!
It only seems to leave on Wednesday, returning on a Thursday.

Hope this helps

Aw, cheers Michael. It's our dates that are the problem. Air Transat only leaves once a week... maybe I'll try to neotiate extra days off....

Hope you can, or make a short trip instead.
Check the Montreal Airport wiki page to see what airlines fly to Ireland (or via the UK). Maybe you can see if those airlines have deals that may fit better.
Cheers!

Michael! You're brilliant indeed!

I totally forgot to check for an open-jaw flight. And Transat does Montreal-Dublin and Gatwick-Montreal on our exact dates. Plus a flight from Belfast to Gatwick is a whole $50 apiece. Saving us about $400 and a bus ride back down to Dublin at some retarded hour in the morning.

I salute you, Michael! We'll drink to you on the plane.

Well, it's a Canadian charter flight. The wine will probably come in a box and cost about $9. Maybe I'll make it a rum and coke. ;)
