I really wanted to see it on Easter of this year, but was wondering what the cheapest flights were. Google is saying everything is $2,500, but I can't see spending that much just to stay for 2 or 3 days tops to see the celebrations.
Is there a snowball's chance in hell that I'll be able to catch a standby?
Bumping, I figured a lot of you guys would be in Ireland or Northern Ireland to see the Easter Rising centenary. I expect most will fly into Dublin, so going to Belfast might increase my chances of flying standby.
Did you read the sticky? There's some info in there about sites for finding affordable flights.
Also look at Iceland's airline, last I looked 5hey were pretty reasonable and they'll give you a day layover in Reykjavik if you want to add a day in Iceland to your trip.
I'll have to, googling this stuff gives me ridiculous prices sometimes. But the google results did show a round trip ticker for like $830, which is cool.
>fly to Dublin on 25th
>look around a bit on the 26th, hop a bus to Belfast
>explore Belfast for 2 days, come back
I don't suppose there would be any openings in the Belfast hostel, maybe it's possible to pay to sleep in the back of a bar or something? Tfw poorfag.

I think there should be plenty. If not, just try Couchsurfing. Maybe you can play up being Catholic or Protestant if you can figure what what the person is as far as religion is concerned.
