Direct flights to Sardinia are back! Choose a weekend break or a week-long stay, and enjoy white sandy beaches, gorgeous old towns and some great Italian food.
With a direct three-hour flight from Dublin and a ten-minute airport transfer and you can be enjoying nice Italian food in the old town of Alghero, with one of Italy’s best beaches beside you. It may not seem like the typical destination for a long-weekend, but we did this very same trip a few years ago and loved it.
The old town of Alghero is perfect for a long weekend or indeed a longer stay. With cobbled stone streets, great shopping and some fantastic restaurants, Alghero is a pleasure to stroll around. There is also a beautiful white sandy beach here which is not something that many of the other Italian resorts can boast about.
If you like designer shopping then take a visit the Costa Smeralda, if only to window shop and see how the other half live! You might spot some celebrities while you are there, this is a very popular hang out for the rich and famous. If that doesn’t float your boat, take a trip to the neighbouring island of Corsica and marvel at the stunning scenery – it is well worth a visit.
Ryanair are flying from Dublin Airport to Alghero twice-weekly on Thursdays and Sundays from March 27th to October 27th. I have chosen a variety of hotel options to choose from below, to cater for those looking for a good value weekend break, or a longer summer holiday.
