European City Breaks
With Europe on our doorstep, there's no end to the city breaks you can take. In the same amount of time it takes to travel from Dublin to Cork, you could be starting an adventure in favourite cities like Rome, Prague, Krakow or Budapest or the more off-the-beaten-track cities like Porto, Wroclaw or Seville. There’s a city break for every interest and every holidaymaker from cities famous for their food to cities famous for classical music and opera to cities with world-class museums.
- Families: Paris Disneyland is a magical destination for families. Combine with a day in Paris to get culture in the mix.
- Nightlife: From the ruin bars in Budapest to the outrageous nightclubs of Berlin to the nocturnal social scene in Barcelona where nothing happens before 2am, Europe’s nightlife is remarkable.
- Food: Lisbon is famous for its custard tarts (pastéis de nata), Amsterdam for its waffles, pancakes and cheese and Rome for all the pasta you could imagine.
