This week, Maire’s picks include a treat-filled Dublin break, a massively discounted transatlantic cruise and a springtime Iceland escape featuring an excursion to a waterfall with an unpronounceable name
£99 -- Central Dublin Hilton Break w/Dinner & Extras£299 -- Iceland City Break w/Natural Wonders Tour
For £99 per person, spend two nights at a city-centre Hilton hotel in the Irish capital, with a whole stack of free extras including tickets to the nearby Guinness Storehouse -- worth £22 each. The package also includes dinner, wine and an Irish cream tea.
Iceland has a reputation for being pricey, but with this deal, you can fly to the capital city of Reykjavik for a 3-night escape for less than £300 each. Flights depart from London, Manchester or Glasgow on a range of dates in spring next year. Plus, the offer includes a day trip to Iceland’s south coast, with the chance to stand behind the Seljalandsfoss waterfall. The tour alone would regularly cost £85. £699 -- 14-Nt P&O Caribbean & Transatlantic Cruise, £350 Off
It’s rare these days to find a Caribbean cruise under £1000, which is why this deal made us sit up and take notice. For £699, fly to Barbados this spring for a 14-night cruise on the P&O Azura
. Following stops in four Caribbean hotspots, the cruise sails to Tenerife and then back to Southampton. At £350 off already-discounted rates, it’s a great excuse for some tropical sunshine in the new year.
