A beautiful coastal city renowned for terrific sightseeing and a great food scene, spend Easter weekend in Lisbon and enjoy one of Europe’s best city breaks.
Lisbon is one Europe’s top city break destinations, and after my recent visit I now know why! It has a beautiful old town – there are pastel-coloured buildings with terracotta rooftops as far as the eye can see. Lisbon is very easy to navigate too, but if you don’t fancy walking it, there are fantastic old trams that will bring you around all the highlights.
The food scene is superb, and a visit to TimeOut Market is a must! I loved Lx Factory too, an eclectic mix of restaurants, bars and shops all in one great open space.

There is plenty to see in Lisbon itself, but if you want to travel, you can take the train to the coastal towns of Cascais or Estoril, or explore the UNESCO World Heritage City of Sintra, and its palaces, castles and museums.
Ryanair, Aer Lingus and TAP Air Portugal all offer daily flights to Lisbon from Ireland. There are many flights to choose from, and you can choose to fly out with one airline and home with another, depending on your preference of flight times. If you wish to stay longer or shorter, simply edit the dates on the links below.
I have chosen the highly rated Esqina Cosmopolitan Lodge, which is located in the heart of the old town and boasts an outdoor terrance with rooftop views. This hotel receives excellent reviews on TripAdvisor and was a Travellers Choice award winner this year. Price for a three-night stay is just €150 per person.
Fancy some 5-star treatment? The luxurious PortoBay Liberdade Hotel is only €332 per person for a three-night stay and boasts an indoor pool and Spa.
Want to bring the kids along? A family stay in the top rated Grape Harbor Prata Apartments is only €730 including breakfast for a three-night stay over Easter weekend. Airfares and hotels will be even less if you can travel mid week or the first week of Easter holidays – simply edit the search dates when you click on the link below.
For this deal I have chosen direct flights from Dublin on Saturday 30th March and returning on the 2nd of April, but dates and durations can be changed to suit your requirements. So go ahead, secure Easter weekend in Lisbon and have something to look forward to!
