The event gave those in attendance a flavour of the spectacular region of Catalonia. Home to works by Gaudí and Dalí, monasteries, UNESCO World Heritage Sites, world-class museums, spectacular beaches and resorts, marinas, mountains and national parks, Catalonia is also famed for its wonderful cuisine, with some of the best restaurants in Spain.

Kevin Cullinane, Head of Communications, Cork Airport, said: “These well-established routes are more popular than ever and we have worked with our airline partners to increase capacity to ensure passengers have the greatest choice possible when it comes to booking their holiday to Catalonia.

“The region has so much to offer from theme parks to architecture and beaches to world-standard cuisine. It is certainly a place that has something to suit all tastes and we are really pleased to be opening up Catalonia even more for Irish holiday makers.”
