Lanzarote is a favourite amongst Irish holidaymakers with its laid-back atmosphere, year-round sunshine, delicious food and less than a 4.5hr flight away!

Due to its unique volcanic landscape, it’s a UNESCO biosphere protected site so there’ll be no high-rise buildings disrupting your view.

They have over 95 hotels across the 4 main resorts of Puerto del Carmen, Costa Teguise, Playa Blanca and Puerto Calero.

The Algarve

In recent years, the Algarve region of Portugal has become one of the most popular destinations for Irish holidaymakers.

Costa del Sol

Just a three-hour flight away, holidays on the Costa del Sol in Spain are as popular as ever with Irish holidaymakers – is it any surprise when its translation is literally ‘Coast of the Sun’?

Flying into Malaga, all the main resort towns are within an hour from the airport with the flight itself taking about 3 hours.

The most popular destinations in Costa del Sol include; Torremolinos, Nerja, Benalmadena, Marbella and Estepona.


Tenerife is an island with a distinct north “face” and south “face” in terms of landscape and infrastructure, with great local cities, small fishing towns such as Puerto Santiago, vibrant resorts, and beaches that stretch for miles.

The island is a fabulous playground for the young and young at heart. Popular destinations are the resorts of Costa Adeje, Los Cristianos, Playa de las Americas and Puerto Santiago.

The biggest of Spain’s Balearic Islands, Majorca languishes lazily in the blue Mediterranean. A definite treasure, the island is a wonderful mix of old, new, modern, traditional and, naturally, abundant dollops of sun, sea and sand.

Young singles, couples and groups of friends visit the south coast for vibrant and active nightlife. The north offers a more tranquil setting, with idyllic walking trails, stunning scenery and family-friendly beaches.

Popular destinations are Port Adriano El Toro, Portals Nous, Palma Nova, Santa Ponsa, Porto Colom, Cala D’Or, Puerto Pollensa and Alcudia.

Gran Canaria

Discover the laid-back resort of San Agustin, hedonistic Playa del Ingles, the magnificent sand dunes of Maspalomas, idyllic Costa Meloneras, bustling Puerto Rico and the unbearably picturesque Mogan in Gran Canaria.

Popular destinations are Playa del Ingles, San Agustin and Mogan.


A little Mediterranean gem, Malta floats in crystal blue-green waters 60 miles south of Sicily and 200 miles from North Africa.

These same waters are perfect for diving and underwater pursuits and the island has many reputable PADI diving centres maintaining international standards.

The island was chosen as a base by the Knights of St. John and, as a result, has many wonderful historical sites.

Some say Malta is like an open-air museum! The capital city, Valletta boats one of the finest natural harbours in the world and the sturdy bastions and fortresses of the city are wondrous in their architecture.

Holidays to Malta are not renowned for sandy beaches, although Mellieha Bay has a lovely one, the resorts of Bugibba and Qawra have many small inlets for rocky bathing and beautiful views over St Paul’s Bay.

The resorts of St Julian’s and Sliema share a gorgeous seafront promenade and the “silent” walled city of medieval Mdina is magnificent.

Famous for amazing beaches, where footprints are rare and wavelets lap the shore and beaches that lure surfers with huge breakers. The island is delightfully local and unsophisticated and all the more attractive for it!

Travelling with children? Don’t forget to visit the animal sanctuary and theme park – Fuerteventura Oasis Park. With camel rides, sea lion shows and tropical birds – there’s a whole world of adventure in store.

Pet the huge collection of farmyard friends at the Kid’s Farm – where goats, cows, ponies, horses, ducks, guinea pigs and rabbits can all be found.

If your timing is good, you can even spend a magical night at the zoo – there are 8 days a year when you can camp under the twinkling stars, surrounded by the flora and fauna of the Botanical Garden!
