Ryanair starts weekly (Sunday) flights to the popular Spanish island of Gran Canaria on Sunday October 31, while those looking for a city break can choose twice-weekly flights to Hungary’s spa city of Budapest (Wednesday and Sunday), or explore 1,000 years of history in Ireland’s capital, Dublin (Thursday and Sunday), also from October 31.

From November 2 Portugal’s coastal capital, Lisbon, is within easy reach with the start of twice weekly (Tuesday and Saturday) flights.
