Cork-To-Seville Service To Launch June Bank Holiday Weekend

Ryanair will bring Cork to within 2.5 hours’ flight time of one of Spain’s cities, with the launch of its new Seville service this June bank holiday weekend.


From the architecture of the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Seville Cathedral and the Real (Royal) Alcázar to the city’s flamenco scene and festivals, Seville promises an escape into the heart of Andalusian charm. It is also a gateway to the region of Andalusia, renowned for its landscapes, beaches, hill towns, and array of culinary delights. The cities of Jerez de la Frontera, Córdoba and Cadiz are all within reach of Seville, and each offers its own unique perspective on Andalusian culture.

In welcoming the new Ryanair service to Seville, Barry Holland, communications manager at Cork Airport, said, “Seville is described as one of Spain’s most alluring and attractive cities and is a wonderful addition to the excellent range of destinations available direct from Cork Airport this summer. We know how much our passengers love new destinations to visit and new cities to explore. We’re confident that this new Seville route will be a popular one with customers from across Munster and beyond. This summer, passengers from the south of Ireland can choose from ten different Spanish destinations direct from Cork Airport for a summer holiday.”

Rubén López-Pulido, director at the Spanish Tourism Office in Ireland, added, “Seville is the capital of Andalusia and is a city that really leaves its mark beyond the grandeur of its monuments, the charm of areas such as Triana, or the scent of jasmine in its squares while Spanish guitar music resounds and echoes along its streets.


“With this new route, Irish people have the opportunity to not only continue enjoying the world-class enogastronomy of the city and the region, but also discover new experiences in Seville, with such different events […] as the Latin Grammy Awards next November or the women’s Davis Cup – the Billie Jean King Cup.”

Additional Information

The ten Spanish destinations accessed directly from Cork Airport are the six to mainland Spain (Seville, Malaga, Alicante, Valencia, Girona and Reus), three to the Canary Islands (Lanzarote, Tenerife and Gran Canaria) and one to the Balearic Islands (Palma de Mallorca).
