Marrakech may not be the first place you think of when looking for city break deals from Ireland. However, Marrakech is a great choice if you want to sample the sights and sounds of this fascinating country, and catch some sun at the same time!


For the most authentic experience, a stay in one of Marrakech’s Riads is a must. I found a great deal in the highly rated Riad  l’Heure d’Eté, which is just 3-minutes walk from Jamaâ El Fna Square, and it includes breakfast!

One of the world’s finest art museums, some of the best Spanish cuisine, and a bustling old town, spend a weekend in Bilbao and enjoy one of Spain’s best kept secrets.

7. Nice: Flights & 4-Star Hotel, 17th November, 3 Nights, €223pp

city breaks to Nice

The South of France is always a good idea and Nice is certainly one of the best value short breaks from Ireland. The flight time is only 2 hours 30 minutes from Dublin, and Nice town centre is only 4 miles from the airport, so you can be sipping cocktails on the Promenade des Anglais within a half hour of arriving in France🍸.


Nice has some gorgeous boutiques, amazing restaurants, and of course a fabulous long sandy beach – but that’s not all. Its location in the South of France is ideal for visiting Cannes,  St Tropez, Monaco, you can even pop into Italy on the train for your lunch!


This weekend break includes a three-night stay in the top rated Le Windsor, Jungle Art Hotel. Centrally located, and highly rated on TripAdvisor, this is a great choice for a weekend break in Nice.

Lisbon is very easy to navigate too, but if you don’t fancy walking it, there are delightful old trams and tuktuks available to help you explore this great city.

After many years of visiting the beach resorts on the Costa del Sol, I finally got around to enjoying a Malaga city break, and I can’t believe what I have been missing for the last 30 years!

Despite being the six largest city in Spain, Malaga feels more like a vibrant town. Its colourful streets are a delight to explore and it is packed with history and culture, as well as tasty tapas bars.
