Anyone can give me a good price for a Dublin bound airline ticket (roundtrip) around April time period? We are shopping for tickets and basically need to find out what is a good price that we need to stumble upon.

In addition, is April time period around a good time to go?

You really need to specify the departure city/area - country too (just because you're from the USA doesn't necessarily mean you would be looking into this to leave from the USA).

My apologies that is a good point.

We would be coming from NY, USA. Preferably a direct flight. (JFK, EWR, Laguardia), any of those airports as departure.

So many people ask about the weather in Ireland or the UK. The weather is NEVER (well apart from the odd day or two) great here!!!!!! DO NOT think about the weather. If you want warm weather then you need to go to the south of Europe. When you are in Ireland it will definitely rain whatever time of year you go. Ireland is a great country but it ain't tropical!!

Check the BBC country page about Ireland where you will see that actually April is the best month regarding rainfall and that it rains on average just over 1 day out of 3.
It's like in Holland, where everybody complains about the weather, but bascially it rains only about 10% of the time. Your chances of having some rain though is always almost 100%, but only short and maybe a day with more intense or longer rain.
Temperatures through rarely get pleasantly warm

I'm not too concerned about the weather. Obviously, there are optimal times when it's best to go to a specific country...not too hot, not too cold, and there are places where winter is the best time to go, etc. So a little rain, given the circumstances for Ireland is fine.

In addition, I am not seeking a tropical location, the reason for my post is to find out when or what the weather is to be expected given the time of year. Who knows, someone may respond and say, April is the worst time or July is the best time. The point is I think that I'm asking about the weather and taking it into consideration is a valid question.

Nevertheless, back to the point, thanks for those who responded accordingly.

About the prices for airline tickets, what am I to expect is a good average for a round trip ticket from NY to Dublin? Anyone?

I've been to Ireland in June, September and December--and caught the rain every time. We're heading back in May, which is supposedly the best month to visit, but I've come to expect rainy weather as the norm. Nonetheless, it's beautiful!

The flight costs can change but if you log onto the dublin airport website there is a section where you can check the costs for multiple airlines.......

For example from april 3- 13th.......

Delta Airlines - €432
american airlines - €486
Aerlingus - €489
KLM - €545
British airways - €752+

These costs include all taxes and fees but exclude creditcard fees and in some cases the costs of bags............

Weater wise April is normally one of the best months, yes it will rain but it just gives you an excuse to go in doors.......

Check with Aerlingus site as they do regular 'special offers' there. They've just finished two European flight deals so I guess the US could be next.... just an educated guess though.

I travelled last year to NY with inter continental and they did a return to/from Newark for E380
