Peak season:

The Big Apple is a go-to destination year-round, but the peak season for travellers to arrive on flights to New York City are the summer months (May to September), Thanksgiving (November) and Christmas / New Year’s. For first time visitors there are endless places to tick off in the city that never sleeps so be prepared for a bucket list as long as your arm. From iconic architecture such as the Empire State Building and the Statue of Liberty, to must-see hang outs like Central Park and Times Square, New York is evocative and inspiring, and just a little bit familiar since it’s the location of so many movies and TV shows. It’s also an art lover’s paradise with many of the finest galleries and museums in the world and if you love shopping, then 5th Avenue’s plethora of designer brands will do some serious damage to your credit card. There’s nowhere else like it and if you book far enough in advance you’ll always be able to find cheap flights to New York City.

Off Season:

Winters (January to March) are cold and blustery, and often experience dumps of snow but, with the exception of Christmas / New Year’s, this is when you’ll pick up the cheapest flights to New York City. Besides, Central Park after a fresh snowfall is exceptionally beautiful and queues for attractions are non-existent.

What is good to know if travelling to New York?

  • If you only had 24 hours in New York what would you do? Luckily we’ve got some great ideas so you don’t waste a moment.
  • New York boasts a population of more than 8 million, but there are plenty of places to escape the hectic pace of the city. You just have to know where to go.
  • Have a drink at McSorley’s Old Ale House, it’s the oldest continuously operated saloon in New York and one of the oldest Irish pubs outside Ireland.
  • Kids aren’t easily impressed these days, but we guarantee New York’s plethora of activities will make it one of those places that they will never forget.
  • For more than 12 million immigrants who arrived by ship, tiny Ellis Island in New York harbour was their first experience of America. The evocative site of the first immigration processing station is now a fascinating museum dedicated to the immigrants who helped build America. 
  • Stop by the historic Katz Deli on the Lower East Side, where that memorable scene from When Harry Met Sally was filmed. Most people can’t resist a cheesy photo under the sign: “Where Harry met Sally…hope you have what she had!” – referring to the meal, of course.
