Avoiding Dublin Airport this summer? Here are the best last-minute travel deals flying out of Cork

If you don’t fancy joining the queue at Dublin Airport, there’s still plenty of time to plan a summer escape that flies out of Cork Airport.

I’m sure we’ve all seen the scenes from Dublin Airport as queues stretch out the door and around the corner. Over the weekend, a confirmed 1,000 hopeful travellers missed their flights due to delays, and there are growing concerns that this will continue into June and July.

From staffing shortages to an increased number of holidaymakers attempting to set off on their first foreign getaway since the pandemic put paid to international travel, Dublin Airport is truly feeling the pressure.

So, if you would rather avoid the pandemonium, we recommend heading for Cork Airport and bypassing the madness before you jet off on your summer holidays.

From city breaks to all-inclusive packages, we’ve rounded up the best travel deals flying out of Cork Airport that might just tempt you into booking a last-minute escape from reality this summer.
