BOS - Alaska gate to Aer Lingus gate transfer time?

Alaska 12 SEA-BOS arrives at 5:50pm. Aer Lingus 134 BOS-SNN departs at 7:15pm.

Will that be enough time to get from one gate to the other?

That should be plenty of time, assuming your inbound flight is on time and assuming you are checking bags through.

Alaska arrives into terminal A and Aer Lingus departs from Terminal E. There is no airside connection from A to E, however. You will need to exit security, transfer terminals, then go through security again.

The quickest way to get from A to E is by walking, not by waiting for the shuttle bus. The best route is to walk through the Central Parking garage. When you exit security in Terminal A, look for signs for Central Parking. There is a skybridge over the roadway into the garage. When you are in the garage, look for signs for Terminal E. It is all very easy and obvious.

Aer Lingus now departs from C. Most of the same still applies though.

Both Aer Lingus and Alaska arrive and depart from terminal C. AS operates from the small section of C with its own security, and I think EI is in the main part. So you will stay in the same terminal the entire time, but will have to clear security again. But if the flight is reasonably on-time, you will not have any issues.

AS moved into C about a year ago due to WN moving to A and EI moved to C just a week or two ago to help relieve crowding in E. The sections where AS & EI are not connected airside, so you will have to reclear security. But you'll be OK as long as it's one ticket. I don't think I'd try this on two separate tickets, though, as if the AS flight is late, EI doesn't have to help you out.

great, thanks for the info. baggage will be carry on only.

the only 1 ticket option through BOS is JetBlue (ugh) instead of Alaska, then Aer Lingus, and that's a 12 hour stop. all others bypass BOS and go through LHR.

this is for July 2017, so things can change.

By then, perhaps the C40-42 to C-Main connector might be open, or at least underway - it's been mentioned, but not sure where it is in the priority list. The C to E connector has gone pretty fast (just opened this week).

You will have plenty of time. The MCT Domestic to International is 1 hour.
