I am traveling through Europe her soon. I found that the cheapest flights from America to Dublin. I am going to bu a Eurail pass also. So my question is if I fly to Dublin, then stay for a couple days, how to I get to a city such as Amsterdam? I saw that the train is in Ireland but, do I need to pay extra to take a ferry to the closest city on the mainland that has the Eurail? How much would that cost?

Dublin, Shannon, and Cologne have been coming up as cheapest US-Europe flights for summer when I’ve checked recently. You might also try CGN if you haven’t already.

For DUB-AMS, check and www.aerlingus.com
www.whichbudget.com might also be helpful for you.

Fly, fly, fly!

You don’t really want to go by train, then by ferry to UK, then by train to London, then by train to Harwich, then by ferry to Hoek van Holland and then by train to Amsterdam. That would take at least two nights and would cost about 10 times more than a nice two-and-a-something-hour flight with a lowcost.

If you have any questions about Prague or Czech and Slovak republics, ask me.
If you only want to search train or bus connection within Czech&Slovakia and/or to neighboring countries, use www.cp.sk or www.idos.cz search engines. For domestic transport, they also show prices.
