Dublin Airport - on the east coast, Cork Airport - on the South coast, Shannon Airport - on the west coast - Knock Airport in the Northwest and Belfast Airport in the North East.
It is possible to fly in to one area and out of another so you don't have to retrace your steps and can see as much of this beautiful country as possible.
Air Canada operate a daily Non-stop flight beween Dublin and Toronto.

The Belfast Route runs on a Sunday and the Dublin route runs on a Thursday.

It is more convenient for North American Guests to make connections in Europe as luggage can be checked right through to final destination when transitting the european airport on the return journey. Return connections made in the USA require luggage to be collected and cleared through US Customs when making a connection at a US airport from an international flight.
The exception to this is that from July 2009 flights originating in Shannon (excluding Aer Lingus) have full US customs clearance prior to departure and will be treated as domestic arrivals at US airports from a customs viewpoint.
