Magic Monday is a round-up of travel deals 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!

€45: Midweek madness in Athlone

The Sheraton’s ‘Say Hello to Summer!’ offer includes B&B, a cocktail on arrival, an upgrade to a deluxe room, a €20 dining credit and a €30 spa credit. The offer is valid on midweek dates and selected Fridays until July 17th, subject to availability. Call 090 6451000;

€299pp: Sun holidays in Tunisia

Sunway has launched a new Tunisia brochure, with seven-day packages starting from just €299pp. Mediterranean beaches, Roman ruins and Sahara desert experiences make this one a sun holiday that stands out.

€499: A self-catering staycation...

Trident Holiday homes has two ‘Pot Luck’ deals for a week’s holiday starting July 12 and July 19. A choice of self-catering properties is available around the country from just €499 per week... but the offer closes tomorrow (July 1). Call Centre bookings only: 01 201-8440,

€849pp: Fly/Cruise on the River Seine

Cruise Escapes has direct flights to Paris, where you can join a four-day river cruise on the Seine reduced from €1,049pp. The price is full-board, with drinks included at meals, and there’s no single supplement either.

€1,390pp: Five-Star Cuba....

Lee Travel in Cork has seven nights in Cuba from €945pp (plus tax) based on travel in October. Best of all, accommodation is at the five-star all-inclusive Royal Hicacos Hotel, Varadero. There’s a free visa too, if you book in July... and a further upgrade if you’re on honeymoon.

NB. All deals subject to availability.
