Destinations / Greece / Corfu
Corfu is a delightful Greek island located just off the north west coast of the mainland, dipping its toes into the turquoise Ionian Sea. Holidays to Corfu are extremely popular as the island is so green and lush due to abundant rainfall - in winter! Pine clad hills, lots of cypress trees and verdant olive groves cover the slopes of Mt Pankrator and the beaches enjoy translucent waters and safe swimming.
The main town on the island is Corfu Town and the architecture is reminiscent of its many invaders from Phoenicians to Venetians. Today, a lot of the island is still quite rural, so that intrinsic "Greekness" has not been lost and the hand of time has hardly touched it.
Holidays to Corfu are full of laid back, relaxing enjoyment where beautiful scenery, hideaway beaches, traditional tavernas, local bars and even some wild discos are the top features.
Aer Lingus operates direct flights from Dublin into Corfu on a regular basis and we provide a wide selection of hotels and apartments in many resorts all over the island.
