Another suggestion based on XiamenAir this time multi-city flights from Dublin to China & Philippines available already for €389 roundtrip! (European part is covered by their SkyTeam partner KLM). You would have to accept longer layover in Xiamen on your outbound flight on the other hand this solution is by far the cheapest option from Ireland we have ever spotted also you would have enough time to refresh before your next flight. At this moment the cheapest option is on route Dublin to Manila with return from Cebu to Xiamen.
