I agree with Filippos, i.e. I'm not 100% sure but I haven't seen any direct flights Dublin/Crete either. Visitors who have flown from Dublin before have booked via Gatwick (Ryanair Dublin/Gatwick is just over £60 return) to Chania. There are also BA flights Dublin/Manchester/Heraklion from £220 retu...

It looks incredible detailed Fillipos and must have taken a lot of hard work. A great guide for anyone visiting the Apokoronos area.

Good luck with it.

Thanks to all those who sent me messages today about the automated spammers getting in again. Still trying to stop them, and it doesn't help when we have a powercut and I can't get on the forum all morning!

There also seems to be a glitch that you have to log in twice. I'm trying to s...
