Best summer sun:

Alghero in Sardinia is one of three new Aer Lingus routes from Dublin airport for next summer. It happens to have a delightful old town, a beautiful sandy beach and of course some great Italian restaurants. Alghero is located just ten minutes drive from the airport so it is an easy destination to book independently. I found a great deal staying in the 4-star Catalunya Hotel for just €576 in July. Price includes flights and hotel with breakfast for seven nights. Highly rated on TripAdvisor this is a great choice for a summer holiday in peak season.
