Tunisia is another beautiful holiday destination with its collection of ancient towns and villages offering markets, medinas and mosques while sweeping arcs of North African sands and calm waters greet you all along its Mediterranean coast.

FLORIDA

TUI will operate four departures direct from Dublin to Florida in June and July next year on its own Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft. The Dublin direct route to Orlando Melbourne International Airport will operate every Tuesday from 24 June 2025 for four weeks, offering fourteen-night duration holidays.

Orlando, one of Florida’s biggest cities and suitably known as the theme park capital of the world is a beacon destination for young and old alike looking for a thrill seeking and fun holiday that will create memories to last a lifetime.  As well as a variety of theme, wildlife and water parks, Orlando also boasts a fantastic shopping scene with a host of shopping malls and outlets. Added to this the themed restaurants and lively nightlife make it an ideal holiday destination.

CORFU

From next May, TUI will introduce holidays from Cork Airport to the Greek Island of Corfu.

Corfu, affectionately known as the Emerald Isle, is great for holidaymakers looking to explore sandy beaches, charming towns, and vibrant resorts. From tranquil Gouvia and San Stefanos to lively Sidari and Kavos, there’s a perfect spot for families, couples, and friends alike.

Starting from May 09, 2025, and continuing until September 12, 2025, TUI will offer a weekly flight to Corfu. Irish holiday makers have the opportunity to discover beautiful resorts across various hotels that accommodate every taste: TUI Scene offers lively accommodations in central party hotspots; TUI Splashworld provides thrilling waterpark experiences perfect for families; and TUI Blue offers personalised holidays emphasising fitness, cuisine, and relaxation.

This new route to Corfu also offers travellers the opportunity to set sail on a Marella Cruise around the Eastern Mediterranean. Whether you want to stand on top of the Acropolis in Athens or explore the ancient gateways of Dubrovnik’s old town, your perfect itinerary is ready and waiting. Plus, all Marella Cruises are All Inclusive as standard, which means all tips and service charges will be part of the deal. If you fancy extending your holiday there is the option to add on a second itinerary or combine with a hotel for a Cruise & Stay break.

Welcoming the expansion for TUIs Summer 2025 programme from Dublin & Cork Airports, Craig Morgan Head of Ireland for TUI, said: “We are thrilled to unveil these new additions to our Summer 2025 holiday program. We welcome back Tunisia, in addition to Larnaca, Cyprus and are very excited to announce that Florida joins our long-haul program, with direct flights from Dublin on our own Boeing 787 Dreamliner. As part of our ongoing commitment to the regions our new Cork to Corfu programme I believe will be warmly received by Munster holidaymakers providing them with the opportunity to relax and explore the Greek island of Corfu or set sail aboard a Marella cruise across the Eastern Mediterranean direct from their local airport.”

 “We want every one of our customers to be able to create a holiday as unique as they are. These changes provide our customers with a greater destination choice for their holiday and when coupled with the variety and choice of TUI hotels from premium, tailor made and all-inclusive to party resorts and family fun – we have brought everything together to help our customers create the perfect TUI holiday to ensure it is a memorable one.”
