Here's another chance to save some serious green on a trip to the Emerald Isle with Aer Lingus' Spring Sale to Ireland. The nation's flag-carrier has extended it's nonstop sale fares from all its North American destinations to its hometown hub in Dublin (DUB) and to Shannon (SNN). Tickets start at just $466 roundtrip for travel through mid-June.
- Travel Period: April 1 - June 15, 2020.
- Travel Days of the Week: Daily on many routes, but will vary by departure airport.
- Blackout Dates: Varies by route, mostly on scattered dates in April around Easter.
- Minimum Stay: Saturday night stay required.
Some markets are only operated on limited days of the week, so you'll have to be flexible with your departure days.
Tickets must be booked by 6:59 pm ET, on Tuesday, February 11, 2020.
Itineraries are easiest to search on the Aer Lingus website, as other third-party booking sites are listing higher rates.

Saver fares only include a carry-on bag plus a personal item. Checked bag fees start at $55 each way when purchased online during booking. Baggage costs at the airport are a hefty $100 one-way for the first 50lbs/23kg piece.
For Saver fares to Ireland, seats will be assigned at random upon check-in. You may be able to pay a fee to choose a specific seat.

Dates before April are considered winter travel and may be available for a slightly lower price.
To upgrade from the listed Saver fare tickets to a Smart fare on flights to Ireland is $120 roundtrip. This includes one free checked bag and advanced seat assignments.
Aer Lingus is also advertising sale fares to destinations throughout mainland Europe during the same spring travel window. Aer Lingus fares to other European cities outside of Ireland are all Smart fares, which include a carry-on bag, a personal item, and one free checked bag. This means it could be cheaper overall to fly Aer Lingus to mainland Europe instead of other carriers that charge for checked bags on the lowest fares.
As an example below, I found a flight departing Philadelphia PHL on Monday, April 13, and returning from Dublin DUB on Monday, April 23, 2020, for $466 roundtrip.
