From a weekend in New York to all-inclusive in Mexico, a train ride on the Rocky Mountaineer or cruising the Caribbean. There are so many holidays from Shannon airport to choose from, here are some of my favourites.
Shannon Airport has been grabbing all sorts of headlines lately, including winning five years in a row at the World Routes Marketing Awards, the only Irish airport to do so. They are attracting lots of new routes too, including direct flights to Toronto for next Summer as well increasing capacity on many American destinations. Did you know you can fly direct to Boston, New York, Philadelphia and Providence Rhode Island from Shannon? And all with the added advantage of being able to clear immigration before you leave – so no need for lengthy queues when you arrive! I have teamed up with Sunway Holidays who offer holidays to worldwide holiday destinations, across the globe, from Shannon airport. I have handpicked some of my favourites but note dates and durations can be changed to suit your requirements, just contact Sunway for more details.
