If you plan to have a great holiday but want to keep it on a budget then take a look at the offers I found on hotels.com and budgetair.ie!

So how about a trip to the south of Portugal, the Algarve! It’s a beautiful place for a nice and relaxing beach holiday but also something for you if you like to stay active during your holiday. It’s great for hiking or cycling around and of course very popular for water sports like surfing and sailing. Just pick your perfect mixture of laziness and adventure! Fly from Dublin to Faro and it’s best to get a taxi from the airport since it would be quite a track by public transport and even more expensive. The taxi costs you only around €30 and takes just under an hour! You will be accommodated by the 3-star Terrace Club (68% on Tripadvisor) in Porches which was awarded with a Certificate of Excellence. Stay in their self catering apartments which keeps the costs low. You’ll have a great view of the ocean and it will only take you a couple of minutes to get to Albandeira and Marinha Beach. If you like to stay at the hotel then you can relax at the pool (there is also one for kids). If you like to skip cooking for some nights then take advantage of the hotel’s restaurant or go out into town and let yourself be spoiled by some delicious Portuguese seafood and nice wine :)
