Are you looking for deals on travel to Ireland this holiday season or perhaps you're on the hunt for savings on travel accessories or luggage?
This post and page contain affiliate links and I may earn compensation when you click on the links at no additional cost to you.
In this blog post, I’ve put together some of the top Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals that will get you thinking and possibly planning your trip to Ireland in 2024.
Before you go searching for a deal, however, it's a good idea to be practical about what the various travel companies and merchants are offering consumers at this time of year.
While a certain hotel deal, for example, might seem fantastic, there could be an even cheaper rate by using points on your credit card or, if you belong to AAA, you may get an even better deal.
So, my advice is to do the research before Black Friday/Cyber Monday.
If you know your exact travel dates and what your travel budget will be, you can work within a particular deal’s parameters.
And please refer back to this blog post for additional updated information as more Black Friday/Cyber Monday deals become available.

How to Find Black Friday/Cyber Monday/Tuesday Travel Deals to Ireland
I get that we are all swamped with emails these days but subscribing to the airlines, car rental companies and hotel brands or accommodation booking sites that you are interested in isn't a bad idea at this time of year.
That way, you will get information on the latest deals right in your inbox without having to search the Internet for them.
You might also want to follow them on X, Instagram and Facebook if you’re active on those social media platforms.
A quick and easy way to find cheaper airline fares to Ireland or anywhere in fact is to sign up for Google Flights alerts, which will allow you to input specific filters so that the results you get will be geared to your travel plans.
Booking a flight these days is not set in stone since most airlines have cancellation policies in place. In fact, the US Department of Transportation's 24-hour rule means that free cancellations or changes on most flights must be granted if booked directly with an airline and booked at least 7 days in advance.
Of course, those policies will depend on your dates and the type of fare you booked, so always read the fine print before making a reservation.
The following deals apply to airfare, hotels, tours, luggage and travel accessories.
