We’ve all seen a Turkey and Canaries fly and taken it for granted.
But not any more as we’re all excited about those two favourite destinations opening up to Irish visitors.
Turkish Airlines www.turkishairlines.ie have just announced that they are resuming their Dublin service.
Canarian dry run
The Canarians have left most of us in their tailspin in the way they’ve handled the crisis.
And they are ready to welcome us back with quarantine lifted from July 1.
You will be encouraged to test 72 hours before flying, will be required to test on arrival and then when you get home.
And when you get on your island you’ll be able to enjoy your favourite Canarian experiences.
You’ll be able to get out on the beaches with some social monitoring while small boats will be running too.
Walking trails are already open and walking festivals are planned to be rescheduled on Gran Canaria from October 22-25.
Walk like a Tahitian
Lockdown has allowed us all to bring the world to us.
And although I know which I’d prefer we have all learned new skills.
Such as how to dance like a Tahitian…

Our South Seas friends www.tahititourisme.uk/en-gb ate also bringing us https://www.pgcruises.com/virtual-tour while if you want to talk like a Tahitian, here’s https://m.facebook.com/speaktahitiparaparautahiti/videos/667495750701108/.
Ireland, the new home of golf
Ireland has been chipping away at Scotland’s position as the Home of Golf.
They’ve most recently held the Open Golf Championship on the island for the first time since the Fifties.
Scottish hotels remain closed, and I pass by the Marine Hotel in North Berwick every day watching golfers.
And I think of the guests who could be staying there.
Irish hotels are reopening with Drumoland Castle partnering with Doonbeg Golf Course to offer a two-nights luxury stay at both resorts.
From Monday, July 20. The deal is from €1228pp. Visit https://secure.dromoland.ie/convert/site/Dromoland%20Castle/en/results/rate/6682083.php?checkin=2020-07-20&nights=2¤cy=EUR&resultViewType=mda&viewtype=rateroom&partya=0.
