Cozumel, Mexico has everything you are looking for. It is a great spot to take the wife. The Country Club area is some of the nicest kiting on the island. Very kite friendly spot for both beginners and experienced. Side shore wind and warm crystal blue Caribbean water.
First Choice Airline are flying to Cozumel direct from Gatwick every week. Not sure about flights from Ireland. The condo is only 5 minutes from the airport and overlooks the kiting area.

for the general kiting info.
With the poor state of the US dollar, your vacation should be a bargain.
Feel free to contact me if you need more info.
I have availability after Jan 22 or can find you other accommodations in the Country Club area to fit your dates.
