Do you know where can I learn to surf the waves?

Where is a good place to learn to surf?

The range of beaches from Bundoran to Strandhill are best known, for beginners and experts alike. One advantage is that the coastline offers you lots of options, no matter what way direction the wind comes form. Other surfspots like Lahinch and Tramore and Benone beach in Co Derry, pictured, have their advantages. If you are thinking of learning abroad, Ericeira outside Lisbon should be your first stop. Nicky Kelly's surfholidays.ie has pioneered the learn to surf business out of Ireland and have even added expert sessions with video analysis.

Can I get a dream honeymoon for under €500?

It's easy to have an unforgettable honeymoon without leaving these shores. Our nearest neighbour offers amazing options too. A croft or cottage in Scotland can offer amazing walking, mountain and coastal scenery and a truly remote experience. The Scottish Tourist Board (www.visitscotland.com) holds extensive lists, but try also Cottages & Castles (+441463 226990; www.cottages-and-castles.co.uk) and Highland Hideaways (+441631 562 056; www.highlandhideaways.co.uk).

My Ryanair booking is NIcholas but my passport name is Nioclas. I am flying in June and he 24 hour name change periods is over. Will I be okay?

Yes, Ryanair tell me that minor changes are not being questioned under their new strategy, even outside the 24- hour changeover period. This is on a case by case basis, and does not apply if they sense you are trying to pull a fast one.
