Practical Information

You need your passport with you when you’re flying out with the UK. A visa may also be required for travel to the United States. There are printers in the check-in area of ShannonAirport, so there is no need to panic if you forget to print your boarding pass. If you have a smartphone you can store your boarding card electronically on your phone. Security can scan the e-barcode so you don’t need to worry about paper at all.

We recommend leaving plenty of time at the airport, so try not to arrive any later than one hour before your flight is due to depart. Queues at security are longer at weekends and during school holidays, so it’s worth giving yourself extra time.

What to expect in New York

Trying to see every attraction in New York is like trying to count all the stars in the night sky, impossible! New York is a metropolis that never sleeps. From yellow taxis, Bloomingdales and hot dog stands to the glimmering lights of Broadway, Brooklyn Bridge and the Statue of Liberty, every single view in New York is an iconic one and one that is instantly recognisable from the thousands of films that have used this magical city as their backdrop. Glamorous and gritty, New York encompasses every walk of life and almost every corner of the globe from the aromatic buzz of Chinatown, the bookish vibe near Washington Square Park, the foodie diversity of Queens with its Italian, Greek, Egyptian, Chinese and Italian restaurants to the dazzle of Fifth Avenue and its designer boutiques. Quirky record shops, cosy bookstores, hip cafes and vintage fashions lie around every corner of New York’s streets. Don’t miss the breath-taking art in the world famous MoMa and Guggenheim museums. Nightowls will love the choice of cocktail bars, jazz clubs, musicals, uber-stylish clubs and rooftop bars.
