Ryanair is not the most sophistocated way to travel - but it is one of the cheapest.
There are a few things you should bear in mind if you want to travel via Ryanair. Firstly, how light can you travel? If you can manage with a hand baggage sized suitcase, you'll be fine. Otherwise, be prepared to pay over the odds for hold luggage. Secondly, can you take your food with you? Buying food on the aircraft can be very expensive, so make your own sandwiches before you go and buy some water or drinks after the security checks in the airport. Food and baggage are where Ryan Air makes up for the cheapness of the flights, so be warned. Thirdly, are you bothered where you sit, and if you are, is your name Usain Bolt? Getting a good seat on Ryan Air means you've got to be fast getting to the front as you board the aircraft as it's often first come-first served (after the children and disabled passengers).
If you are willing to do these things, you will have an enjoyable, and most importantly, a cheap flight. I have never experienced any problems when flying with Ryain Air. The pilots always seem to take off and land well and I have never had a delay. Ryan Air really is value for money.
Summary: Value for money.
