n this new series of the travel review show, presenters Tommy Bowe, Vogue Williams, Mairéad Ronan and Joe Lindsay return to review destinations that can be flown to directly from the island of Ireland.

They venture west with a stateside trip to Seattle, test a couple of winter sports resorts in Bulgaria, hit the beach on Turkey’s Turquoise Coast, take a weekend city break in Porto in northern Portugal, visit the year-round favourite, the volcanic island of Lanzarote, and journey to the Far East to explore Hong Kong.

Series 7, episode 1 

The new series kicks off in the USA, in the city of Seattle in Washington State.

Tommy gets his bearings from the top of the iconic Space Needle, before taking to the skies on a seaplane for the very best view of the city. The Chihuly Garden with its glass sculptures captures Vogue’s imagination, as does MoPOP, the very cool Museum of Popular Culture. The duo head out to sea on a whale watching trip, grab a coffee at the original Starbucks store, throw fish at Pike Place Market and visit the city’s stickiest attraction, the Gum Wall.

In this week’s short Getaway Joe Lindsay visits Dungarvan’s farmer’s market with local chef Paul Flynn, and takes in the majestic Mahon Falls with its magic road en-route!
