Magic Monday: Your weekly ticket to travel happiness...
You might hate Monday, but you'll love Pól Ó Conghaile's weekly pick of five fab travel deals.
Magic Monday is a round-up of special offers designed to brighten up the worst morning of the week. My focus is always on value, rather than cheap for the sake of cheap. Enjoy!
