Flew United non stop Newark-Shannon. Paid extra for Economy Plus seating both ways. Yes you do get a few extra inches of leg room but that's it. You do not get priority boarding- in fact I was in Group 5- last to board.

other offerengs including fly fishing, Falconry (which was what I did), horseback riding, clay shooting, hiking, biking, wine tasting in their extensive wine cellar. A very interesting Art & History tour is offered daily showcasing the extensive art collection in the hotel. The rooms - especially those in the new wing are large & luxurious and overlook the beautiful grounds. There are multiple food outlets on the property. The hotel is approximately 45 minutes from Dublin.
From Kildare we headed further north to Belfast - Northern Ireland. U.K. pounds here not Euros. We had 1 overnight at the Fitzwilliam Belfast - I would classify it as a 4 star boutique hotel.
Final 2 nights we spent at the FitzWilliam Dubin. This is a 5 star property, very well located across from St Stephen's Green. Lots of restaurants & shops all within easy reach.
Contemporary style might not be for the more traditional type client. Excellent
