Every Dark Cloud Has a Silver Lining – Jackie Coakley



Well the weather has been really disappointing and with kids on holidays from next week it’s not looking very hopeful that it’s going to get much better. On the positive side there are some great deals to be had for holidays for the rest of the year.

Throughout the Summer there are some fantastic bargains on Cruises eg 14 July 7 nts Med Cruise including flights ex Cork € 643 pp – Thomson Cruises
Royal Caribbean have deals for 7 nts ex Venice from € 449 in August – Cruise only

Tailor making is big business now and we can package with any of the low cost airlines to Canaries, Portugal , Spain etc, adding transfers and accommodation so again saving you money eg 14 – 21 Aug, 2 adults + 2 kids – ex Cork – Tenerife € 1350 Total , 4* Self Catering
