I found a superb holiday deal for you if you want to escape the beginning autumn weather… It is a great hotel in Porches at the Algarve in Portugal. You’re going to like it! The offer is on Ebookers.ie so be quick before it sells out!
Fly from Shannon to Faro and since a taxi is like 3 hours quicker than public transport I’d recommend you to take this one. Doesn’t cost thaaat much. The hotel is located in Porches which owns a beautiful long stretch of white sand beach. Right there you find the 4-star LTI Pestana Viking Beach and Spa Resort (83% on Tripadvisor) which was awarded with this year’s Certificate of Excellence and really is amazing! Since the hotel is situated on a picturesque cliff you’ll have a great view across the blue ocean. The resort is ideal if you’re looking for a couple’s getaway with lots of possibilities to relax yourself. The spa area is beautifully designed and held in a modern style. Book some treatments and massages to get the full rejuvenating effect. If you’re too lazy to walk down to the beach you can chill out on the sun deck at the salt water pool or go for a swim in the indoor freshwater pool. You should definitely get up early one day and take in the beautiful sunset, it’s simply stunning. Included in the deal is breakfast but you can also look forward to trying out the delicious meals in the hotel’s dining options, like the Pool Bistro, Italian and Valhalla where you can order set menus or a-la-carte dinners. The hotel is also close to many attractions. Take a trip to the historic Sagres Fortress or if you need more action you can use the Slide Splash-Parque Aquatico or other Aquaparks… Enjoy!
