Go-Today (tel. 800/227-3235; www.go-today.com) is known for its low prices and no-frills independent packages, and this fall trip to Dublin and Belfast -- including six nights with airfare and train tickets, from $1,299 per person -- is no exception.

In Dublin, view the Book of Kells on display at Trinity College, shop along Grafton Street, learn about Ireland's most famous author at the James Joyce Museum, and drink and dine in the lively Temple Bar district. And in Belfast, don't miss the Falls Road Murals, a taxi tour of historic spots, or the bargain hunting at St. George's Market.
Stay in Dublin at the Grand Canal Hotel, close to Aviva Stadium and a 10-minute walk from Temple Bar. In Belfast, the Park Inn by Radisson is across the street from Ulster Hall.

Why is this a deal? Airfare for an early September departure runs $1,160. Room rates for Grand Canal Hotel in Dublin for three nights will cost about €426.70 ($546.48) and the Park Inn by Radisson Belfast for three nights runs £255 ($403). Accommodations come to a total of $949.48, or $474.74 per person. If you factor in airfare and the second-class rail fare from Dublin to Belfast (from $66 per person), the package would cost you $1,700.74 per person if booked separately. Reserving this trip with Go-Today will save you about $401 per person.

The prices listed are general starting rates; see "What Else You'll Have to Pay" for details about associated taxes and fees. Base-prices, taxes, and fees can vary based on point of departure and time of travel. Blackout dates may apply. Trip add-ons like sightseeing tours and meal plans may also increase the price.
