The airline that brought you $99 flights to Iceland is back with a $159.99 to their newest destination: Cork, Ireland.

WOW Air, an Iceland-based low-cost carrier, will begin servicing Cork Airport beginning in June 2017. Flights will be available four days per week from New York City (at Newark Liberty International Airport), Baltimore, Boston, San Francisco, and Los Angeles.

“Although it’s a lesser known tourist destination, customers are in for a treat,” WOW Air CEO Skúli Mogensen said of Cork.

Ireland’s largest county is known for being very friendly, probably thanks to wildflower-covered hills and rambling rivers flowing through 6,000-year-old ruins. Visitors should also schedule time to take the new Wild Atlantic Way, a scenic route that runs some 1,500 miles along the country’s coast.

Even if you’re not familiar with cork, you’ve probably heard of the Blarney Stone, which is just a few miles away from the city center. Whiskey aficionados have a also been known to make pilgrimages to the Jameson distillery.

Travelers can still take advantage of WOW Air’s stopover program, allowing you to double up on vacation by spending as many as days as you’d like on a layover in Iceland.

Availability for these $159 one-way fares can be found on and off between launch of this new route until late October, 2017, save for July and August.
