I am always encouraging our visitors to start and end their visit to Ireland via our local Knock Airport. No scuffling and delays with security and administration. Always a relaxed arrival and departure.
Unfortunately, we still do not have the return of transatlantic flights but we do have a new schedule of excellent inexpensive late afternoon flights from London Gatwick by XL Airlines.
There are excellent budget priced direct flights from all over the world to London Gatwick, a much easier airport to get around than Heathrow, and now you will find most flights connect wonderfully with XL Airlines Gatwick to Knock route, 95 minutes flight.
After your restoring vacation here in North and West Ireland you could depart from Knock to
Gatwick, if you would like some time in London
Bristol, if you would like to go to places like Bath, Avebury and Stonehenge
Glasgow, if you would like some time in Scotland
Liverpool, a city of culture, Beatles etc.
Crete, Bulgaria, and Croatia if you would like a Med or Black Sea diversion
Dublin, yes even fly to Dublin from Knock, though I would recommend you choose the train for that instead.
…… and still get back to Gatwick for your return flight
I’ll assist you with accommodation, transport and car rental as required.
