When’s the best time to book Christmas flights to Ireland?

Booking a flight to Ireland from Australia as early as six months in advance can save you up to 5% on flight prices. Be sure to check out the sales that airlines have during the months of July and August to find a great price on a round-trip ticket for December.

Booking later in the year, 3–5 months in advance, won’t hurt either as you’ll still save up to 3%.

Depart during the first two weeks of December and you’ll snag a good deal but aim to leave on 6 December for the best price of the month.

Plan to have a white Christmas and stay in Ireland for the holiday season as prices skyrocket the rest of December. However, fly home on 28 or 29 December in time for New Year’s and you’ll have some extra cash for spending.

Choose a returning flight on 1 or after 10 January for a bargain.


Tips and tricks to getting cheap Christmas flights to Ireland

Fly to Ireland for the best price with these simple tricks.

  • Don’t fly direct: Luckily Dublin is one of the cheapest cities to fly into Europe, but London or Paris may be a better bargain. For example, flying from Sydney to Paris could save you up to $250. Hop on a cheap flight from a budget airline such as RyanAir and you have yourself some savings.
  • Search for single seats:If travelling with family or friends be sure to research prices as one person. Don’t search for seats for multiple people as sites will show you the highest price of the group of seats. You could save hundreds by looking for one seat and then booking multiple. You might not sit together but you’ll have money to spare.
  • Fly cheaper airlines: Flying from Australia to Europe is a popular route which means prices are competitive, which is great news for you because budget airlines are available. Take a look at prices on China Southern for discounted flights.
  • Where to find the latest deals: We’re constantly on the lookout for great flight deals and we share them all with you. Bookmark this page and sign up for our emails so you don’t miss out.
