Great idea!

Includes flights from Dublin to New York, and from Southampton to Dublin.  Surprised they haven't limited it to Irish residents only...

Done. They do ask which county (antrim etc) on a click list but have an outside Ireland choice.

If you fly from Dubin you can clear the USA immigration prior to departure and land in the USA as a domestic passenger. It is a marvelous idea and saves a lot of time. If only Heathrow offered this unique service.
From the moment you first glimpsed the Queen,
 you just knew you were in for a very special time ahead.!

Dublin and Shannon are the only airports that offer this service, and it is a great attraction for passengers to the US.

I must say I am also surprised that this offer is not tied to a proviso of at least having bought a copy of the Irish Times...

I too have filled in the form :) .

Our family owes our QE2 voyages to an Irish Times offer -- not a free one at the time, but the chance to start a voyage in DĂșn Laoghaire. Our Mum was hooked, and then the rest of us were too!

Very tempting!
First sailed on QE2 in August 2003 aged 6 years old. Last stepped foot and sailed on QE2 in July 2008. Last saw the seagoing QE2 in person from the decks of QM2, on QE2's last Transatlantic crossing (Eastbound tandem) in October 2008. Visited QE2, in her new life, in Dubai back in January 2020.
