Flying Geneva to Ireland, cork or shannon

Just wondered if anyone had any tips on which airline is best to fly with for good deals. Also how far in advance should I be booking for an Xmas holiday trip back to Ireland. I haven't been able to locate any direct flights. only direct geneva to dublin is what I can find. any good websites to find out about and compare flights??
thanks

Re: Flying Geneva to Ireland, cork or shannon

oh Don't even get me started
Ryanair about a year ago..maybe more...direct lfight from Basel to Dublin...CANCELLED.!!!!
then Aer Lingus came along and brought a lovely Zurich to Dublin flight which is grand ya so so!!
BUT THEN!!! then they brought out an even nicer Geneva straight to Cork route and I was sooooo happy UNTIL the B******* cancelled it in March

so no more easy travel days....NO

so now I have to go all the way to Zurich to fly to Dublin to get on a train to Cork for three hours or I can fly through London which is worse

I wouldn't even mind going with Swiss Air but it still means going through Dublin

but in answer to your question after my little rant if you're flying to Dublin I suggest a train to Zurich and walla even better if you have half price travel

Obviously if you're based in Geneva, take the Aer Lingus direct Geneva-Dublin flight, rather than taking the train to Zurich!

Sorry - meant to say based in Lausanne! Also if you know your travel dates, you can book via the Aer Lingus website months in advance and get a fairly good deal.

I'd say your best bet is Geneva-Dublin, then see about getting an Aer Arran flight to wherever you need to be. They were advertising in Dub Airport yesterday. Most destinations were 19.99, I think. Not bad for shaving 3 hours off your journey.
