We're promised a cheeky little spell of sunshine this Bank Holiday weekend but knowing Ireland, it's hard to tell how long that will actually last for.
So, with that in mind, it's never any harm to have a few holidays backed up in the pipeline and when they are as cheap as this, it's really hard to say no.

The discount starts on May 3rd and you have plenty of time as it runs until May 17th.
The sale is inclusive for travel between 10 May to 27 September starting from €14.99 one way
