I get daily mails asking for holiday advice and hotel recommendations and it can be hard to give advice to people you don’t know. We’re all so different in our tastes and what we want out of a holiday, but I give ideas hoping to inspire someone to take a memorable holiday.
On Thursday morning at 8.35am on Ireland AM I’ll be answering a question from a viewer in search of a family break in the sunshine. Her requirements were a short enough flight and guaranteed sunshine. Two places jumped straight to mind: Morocco and the Canary Islands. So that’s where I’ll be chatting about!
