These two new Ryanair destinations will offer even more choice for passengers from across the south of Ireland when booking a summer getaway.

“Seville, the capital city of the Andalusia region, in southern Spain, is known for its stunning architecture, authentic Spanish cuisine, and rich history. La Rochelle, on France’s idyllic western coastline, is a thriving maritime city, located in the splendid surrounds of the Nouvelle-Aquitaine region. With its picturesque harbour, charming old town and lively street cafes, La Rochelle is a city that is both elegant and vibrant.
