This sunny weather has my Travel juices flowing and i keep finding myself staring at the sunny park outside my window and thinking of far flung beaches, coconut cocktails and bikini wearing weather. Its time to book a holiday!!
Vancouver is a city between the beach and the mountains, and whilst there's a lot to see in British Columbia, it's hard to find a reason to leave this city. Vancouver is continuously voted one of the best places to live in the world. It's also great news for powder hounds, as Vancouver is so close to Whistler, and this will make it much more affordable to fly to Canada for ski season!

Rum, reggae, white sandy beaches: Jamaica encompasses all that is great about the Caribbean, and packs it into 10,000km2. You can actually visit a Bob Marley Museum here!

Dublin to Cancun, Mexico with TUI Group
Starting June 13th, from €528 return
Considering booking a holiday for Christmas early? If you book your hotel and flights now you can get a great deal to Mexico, especially with this new TUI route from Dublin opening up this June. Touch down after a ten hour flight and get ready to sun yourself on the shores of the Caribbean Sea, or explore Cancun's downtown area, El Centro, for shopping and sights. If you're needing day trip inspiration then check out the Coba Ruins, Ik Kil Caves and Isla Contoy for starters. Mexico is also a divers' paradise, with many of them heading to the surreal, iridescent waters of the underground caves at Sistema Dos Ojos, accessible by boat from Cancun.
Dublin to Cluj, Romania with Blue Air
Starting June 4th, from €196* return
Did you know the beer in Romania is some of the cheapest in all of Europe? It's an often forgotten country between Moldova, Bulgaria, Hungary and Serbia, and Nopca-Cluj sits in the north west. This will be a great cheap place to fly to from Ireland for holidays in Europe, especially if you plan on inter-railing or driving through eastern Europe. Cluj itself is a colourful, small city with plenty of palaces and churches to explore. Head straight to Museum Square for a coffee before you spend the day exploring. Turda Gorge is a great day out in Romania's back country.
Dublin to Athens, Greece with Aegean
Starting June 20th, from €144 return
Athens actually dates back to 3000BC; chart the city's history for yourself in the Pantheon, the Acropolis and the Ancient Agora. It's not all ancient ruins though: Greece's financial situation has led to a surge in creativity in the city, and now there's a new stream of street art and contemporary museums running through Athens. Indulge in a big fat Greek city break before you go galloping off to the islands.
Cork to Madrid with Iberia Express
Starting June 18th, from €118 return
Madrid is one of the easiest and most fun cities to tour in Europe, avoiding the high gloss of Barcelona, but with all of the fun, food and history you'll need. Start your city break with a walking tour to get a feel for the city, then slowly make your way to El Rastro to check out the market of vintage trinkets and treasures – coffee in hand, of course. When you're hungry, hop on over to San Anton, the cities biggest and oldest food market, then spend the afternoon at the Crystal Palace Gardens or one of the Museums – the Prado and Reina Sofia are two of the best in Europe. The sunset at Temple Debod is picture perfect, and there are tapas bars all over the city.
