Going Places

We’ve decided that we’re going to take a badly needed one–week break soon probably towards the end of this month or the start of April, and we’re hoping for lots of relaxing, a bit of history and culture, good food, and maybe one or two nights on the town. Oh, and it has to be sunny! And beautiful. And not too expensive, please. Any thoughts?

I am hoping to go to Portugal over Easter. Any recommendations?

Why not visit the capital? Lisbon is a culturally rich, beautiful city encompassing everything one would want from a city break; fine restaurants, an abundance of culture to experience, beautiful scenery and great shopping. Spring is an ideal time to visit Lisbon, as the weather is more comfortable for sight–...

I plan to travel to Budapest this summer. I have never been before and am unfamiliar with the city. What are the must sees?

Often described as ‘The little Paris of Middle Europe’, Budapest is a city full of charm and a real traveler’s paradise. Its magnificent monuments reflect a city steeped in culture and history, thousands of years old, and you won...

 

Fresh from winning four separate accolades at the Irish Travel Trade Awards, Managing Director Tanya Airey of Sunway talks to Lorcan MacMuiris about the where to see this summer…

“The most popular destination for Irish people is Spain,” Tanya Airey tells me, “whether that’s the mainland, the Canary Islands or the Balearic Islands — in...

India is packed with fun and excitement every season brings with it new celebrations. The birthdays of gods and goddesses, saints and prophets, historical events and the advent of the New Year are all celebrated with vibrant festivities. Or, if India is not adventurous enough for you, why venture to the Dragon Kingdom of Bhutan or magnificent Nepal, home of Mount Everest?

I want to surprise my girlfriend with a quick break to Paris for Valentine’s this year, and I’ve arranged for us both to take a little time off work to get the most out of it. I haven’t been to Paris since I was a teenager and with so much to see and do I want to make sure we see the best of it. Any advice? Thanks!

As one of the most romantic cities...

Mothers’ Day is on the way, and if the weather is nice (and even if it isn’t) why not consider taking your mam on a little road trip to celebrate the day? We Corkonians sometimes forget what living in the biggest county in Ireland actually means: it means we have a huge variety of things to see and places to go right in front of us, and we don’t have to cross into...

If you’re casting about for ideas for an active summer or late–spring getaway (and now’s the time to do it), then why not try something a little different and get in touch with your Celtic roots? Or, if you have no Celtic roots to speak of (and there’s no shame in it if you don’t) then why not see what all the fuss is about with a hiking tour of the Celtic nations...

We spend so much time planning to get out of Ireland for our holidays, we sometimes tend to overlook the reasons why thousands upon thousands of people make a point of visiting this island every year, from places a far flung as the US, Australia and China. We live in a remarkable part of the world.

One of the big draws since it opened has been the Wild Atlantic Way. As you may have read...

My boyfriend’s 30th birthday is coming up and I’d love to organise a few days abroad for us and some friends to celebrate. We’d like to go somewhere where there is plenty to see and do during the day and great nightlife too. Is there any city in particular that comes to mind?

Barcelona, the capital and crown jewel of Catalonia in Spain, is a city with...

My sister and I got some money for Christmas and we’d love to spend it on a mini-break somewhere to escape the January blues! We’d love some sunshine and interesting things to see, is there anywhere you’d recommend?

If you’re looking for winter sunshine, Madeira is the perfect place to go. Nestled in the Atlantic off the west coast of Morocco, it’s a sub...

Now is the time of year when people start to plan their summer holidays, often with dreams of seeing far–off, exotic lands or trekking through little–known regions in unlikely places. Once your plan is made, of course, you’ll start booking flights, saving money, perhaps even start thinking about a whole new wardrobe. But one vital aspect of many foreign holidays simply cannot...

My husband and I have always wanted to visit Scandinavia but we are unsure which country or city to choose. We would love to visit an interesting and beautiful city where there is lots for us to see and explore. Is there anywhere you can recommend?

An enigmatic city where the charm of the old meets the innovative new, Copenhagen is the ideal destination. The cool,...

Italy has been at or near the top of Irish people’s ‘European destinations’ list for decades. The gorgeous scenery, phenomenal food and vast history make it a must–see desination for any traveller worth his or her salt, and as a romantic destination for couples it has few rivals. Even the cities and towns sound like an invitation to a fairy tale: Amalfi, Tuscany,...

As the new year gets into its stride now is a great opportunity for you to do the same, and you can start by planning a pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostella in Galicia as millions of others have done for nearly two thousand years.

The Camino de Santiago, or more accurately, any of the several Caminos de Santiago, is no longer necessarily a religious experience but an intensely cultural...
