Travel Challenge: Summer break in Ireland
Friday 01 June 2012
Each week we invite three companies to offer us their best deal for a specific holiday. Today: a summer trip to the Emerald Isle. Prices are per person, based on two people travelling together. Each includes a week's accommodation and transport from the UK on Monday 11 June.
Irish Ferry Holidays
Includes ferry crossing from Holyhead to Dublin (with car) and B&B in Kinsale, Killarney, Galway and Killiney near Dublin. "The hotels are well placed for sightseeing, whether your interest is dramatic scenery, glorious beaches or local Irish life," says Ann Pye of Irish Ferries Holidays (08717 300 400; irishferries.com/holidays).
Includes Aer Lingus flights from Manchester to Cork and B&B at the Jurys Inn hotel in Cork. "This represents a great-value short break to one of Europe's most enduringly popular destinations where you're guaranteed a great time," says Chris Hagan from Superbreak (0871 222 3055; superbreak.com).
Includes Aer Lingus flights from Gatwick to Dublin and room-only at the Dylan Hotel in Dublin. "The Dylan is nestled at the heart of Dublin's most sophisticated quarter, on an exclusive Victorian street, steps away from the city's stylish restaurants, shopping and nightlife," says Kathy Maxwell of lastminute.com (0871 222 5969; lastminute.com).
