Thanks to low-cost airlines the cost of flying has gone down over the years. From most countries in Europe you can fly to Ireland from €80 for a return flight. The most convenient airports to fly to in Ireland are Dublin Airport and Cork Airport.
A useful website to arrange your flights to and from Ireland is www.skyscanner.com. It is also easy to check which airport in your area you can fly from and where in Ireland you can fly to.

Use the full weight allowance of your hand luggage, this is usually 10 kg. Checked luggage is usually 15-20 kg, so you can bring 25-30 kg altogether! It is better to use sports bags than suitcases. Suitcases are heavier, so you can not bring as much luggage.
Rod hire is available, this will save you the cost and hassle of bringing a rod tube on the plane.
