When British aviators John Alcock and Arthur Brown pioneered the first non-stop transatlantic flight from Newfoundland to County Galway in 1919, little did they know they were bringing about a travel revolution. A century later, the 3,200-mile journey from Dublin to New York JFK takes just over 7 hours and is a reality of everyday life. Whether you’re planning a freewheeling shopping spree with your mates, a long-promised family sightseeing adventure, a romantic getaway, a special celebration or a stimulating cultural break, New York turns on the charm the moment you set foot on its storied sidewalks.
As one of the world’s most popular city break destinations, New York is no stranger to catering for large volumes of visitors, whatever the season. Booking at least 2 months ahead is the best way to nab top bargains and ensure widespread availability for both flights and accommodation. The holiday rush reaches its peak in July, while the promise of sparkling seasonal cheer brings an extra surge of visitors in December. It’s easy to beat the crowds and find better deals on cheap flights to New York from Dublin in November, or you can wrap up warm and enjoy the city in its winter finery in February, when the cultural season is in full swing and the museums and galleries are at their quietest.
National carrier Aer Lingus offers frequent, competitively priced Dublin to New York flights, with a choice to land at either John F. Kennedy International or Newark Liberty International and an average flight time of around 7 hours 40 minutes. Direct services between Dublin and JFK are also operated by Finnair, Iberia and British Airways, while Lufthansa flies into Newark. US carriers Delta, United and American Airlines complete the non-stop offerings. Broaden your options with a one-stop itinerary via a European hub –for example, KLM via Amsterdam or SAS via Copenhagen.
Both JFK and Newark Liberty International provide a variety of transport options to whisk you seamlessly to your final destination. A round-the-clock bus service links Newark, around 20 miles southwest of central Manhattan, with New York Grand Central Station and Newark Penn Station. The AirTrain monorail also connects with the Amtrak and New Jersey Transit rail networks. From JFK, the cheapest way to cover the 18-mile journey to Manhattan is by AirTrain or subway, which can bring you anywhere within the MTA subway and bus network.
New York’s fabled fine art museums are on many people’s must-see lists. Head for Central Park’s Museum Mile, where you can work your way from the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s vast collection of ancient artefacts to the cutting-edge contemporary galleries of the Guggenheim Museum. The Neue Galerie New York houses early 20th-century German and Austrian paintings in a landmark Fifth Avenue mansion, while the Jewish Museum contains one of the largest collections of Jewish art outside Israel.
