Under current EU law, EU airlines must offer passengers one of two options if their cancelled flight was short-haul (up to 1,500km). You can either ask for a full refund on all parts of unused tickets, providing it is within seven days of the cancellation being announced. Alternatively, you can request that the airline offers you an alternative flight. If you go for this option, you are also entitled to 'care and assistance', which boils down to food, drink and accommodation while waiting for your new flight.

There is also a chance of additional compensation, though a report in the Financial Times warns: "The EU rules state that an 'airline will have no further obligation to provide assistance once you accept a refund of the ticket; or a rebooking at a later date'." However, airlines can only usually wriggle out of paying compo if the cancellation was due to "exceptional circumstances". Given that Ryanair has admitted it is at fault, it's still worth applying.
