A Carlow woman is set to jet off to the United Arab Emirates this summer after winning a dream holiday with Beat’s What Would You Do for Dubai? competition. 

The competition saw thousands of hopefuls enter to try and win the bucket list getaway.

Lisa Doyle a nail technician from Tullow, Carlow bagged a place in the grand finale on Friday by revealing on Beat At Work earlier in the week that she would audition for the X Factor while dressed as a penguin.

Appreciating her madcap honesty, we gave Lisa a place in Friday's competition, where she faced nine other foolhardy finalists who had their sights set firmly on the Middle Eastern metropolis.

The Carlow native successfully navigated the first round of Dubai-based trivia, but it all came down to a nail-biting victory with a game of – you guessed it – Pop-Up Pirate!

Speaking to Darren Rice on Beat Drive, a shaken Lisa revealed that she would bring her boyfriend on what she described as "the holiday of a lifetime".
