St John’s, Newfoundland: a Great Weekend Break from Dublin!

St John’s, Newfoundland: a Great Weekend Break from Dublin!

Paula Glynn, Grogan Travel, perfectly summed up for everyone this weekend’s four-day fun fam trip with Sunway and WestJet to St John’s in Newfoundland with: “I’ve had a ball!”

“Jelly bean” houses in St John’s, Newfoundland, got their bright, varied colours because boat paint was the cheapest available to the owner fishermen.

    There is something special about St. John’s. It’s not just the scenery or the great restaurants and pubs, it’s the people and their outlook in life, which brings out the best in you! We all met as strangers and came home friends, and it doesn’t get any better than that!
