When to book flight for August

Hello, all. My family of 3 will be heading to Ireland at the end of August for 12 days. We would like to fly from NYC area into Shannon and out of Dublin. Right now, the best fare I am seeing is just over $2,000 for the three of us with United direct flights. Would it be to my benefit to wait to book for a better price, or is this as good as it is going to get? Thanks for any thoughts/input you may have.

No That is an excellent fare for 3 people buy it. What are the exact dates because I also see lower prices but they may not be direct flights?

Thanks for your input! Exact dates are Aug 22 - Sept 2. I am a terrible flyer, so I am willing to pay a bit more for direct flights :-) Our departure airport is JFK. I just didn't know if fares would come down in the next couple of months.

Sounds like a great deal, especially for a direct flight. Agree, snag it!

hey joanna
that's a great price for 3. check your arrival and departure times, if early check in or luggage storage before. you'll have a great time.
