Iceland from Cork Ireland in April

I am from the U.S. and will be visiting family in Ireland in the beginning of April. My husband and I would like to take a few days and visit Iceland. We do not know where to start to get information regarding flights from Ireland, nor what to do on such a short trip. Cork city has an international airport but it doesn't look like they fly direct to Iceland. Is it unreasonable to think we could plan a short trip there from Ireland? And if it is not, what would be our best options while there? Thank you for any information!!!!!

What about Apr. 2-5?, Explore has good weekend tours this date.

Or Apr 3-7?, VJV has tour this weekend.

Correction: We arrive the 3rd in Ireland and leave the 14th. Somewhere around the 5th or 6th for a couple of days in Iceland would be more probable.

Here are two possibilities:

Through Manchester, returning through Heathrow

06Apr09 MAN KEF FI441 22:05 23:35

10Apr09 KEF LHR FI450 07:40 11:45 GBP 377 return

10Apr09 LHR ORK EI715 14:15 15:30 GBP 73,86 one-way (this is Good Friday holiday!)

Or

Through Heathrow in both directions

06Apr09 ORK LHR EI710 07:35 09:00

10Apr09 LHR ORK EI715 14:15 15:30 EUR 127,93 return (return is Good Friday holiday!)

06Apr09 LHR KEF FI451 13:00 15:00

10Apr09 KEF LHR FI450 07:40 11:45 GBP 387 return

I don't imagine you'll find anything cheaper on Icelandair. I tried to find Ryanair flights to connect through Glasgow (Prestwick, bus to Glasgow International) with Icelandair, and through Stansted with Iceland Express, but Ryanair's Web site is not showing any flights out of Cork in April 2009.

bmibaby have cheap flights Cork to Manchester, but the timings are totally wrong to connect with Icelandair's two weekly flights on Monday and Friday.
