A beautiful coastal city renowned for terrific sightseeing and a great food scene, why not spend the October Bank Holiday weekend in Lisbon?
Lisbon is finally getting the praise it deserves and it is slowly becoming one of Europe’s top city break destinations. The city is very easy to navigate and if you don’t fancy walking it there are fantastic old trams that will bring you around all the highlights. 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. For more information on Lisbon and it’s coast, read my blog.
There are many flight options available so you can choose to fly out with TAP Air Portugal, Ryanair or Aer Lingus, depending on your preference of flight times. I have priced this deal flying out with TAP Air Portugal, at the time of issue this price was just €88. However, you will see many more options when you click on the link below.
I found a great deal staying in the centrally located São Bento Hotel, with breakfast included. Its modern décor and super service ensure excellent reviews from guests on Tripadvisor. This hotel is an ideal choice to spend the October bank holiday weekend in Lisbon.
Fly direct from Dublin on Saturday 23rd October with TAP Air Portugal and return Tuesday 26th October with Ryanair and secure this great deal for just €283 per person, including breakfast!
I have linked flights to Skyscanner below for convenience, however I recommend booking directly on the airlines website, rather than using a third party site. There are many other flight options available. The hotel quoted below includes the supplement for free cancellation, if cancelled by 21st October.
