Travel from North America to IrelandFrom North America

There are a number of airlines that fly directly to Ireland from major North American cities, with new routes being added annually. Most airline websites have a facility that will allow you to book your domestic connections and transatlantic flight on one ticket.

  • Chicago
  • Orlando
  • San Francisco
  • Seattle
  • Philadelphia

There is also the option of connecting to Ireland through other European airports, using large international airlines such as KLM, Air France, Lufthansa and British Airways.
