The Basque region of Spain is a little bit special. It really does offer you something different than your typical Spanish beach holiday as it is a region steeped in a unique and fascinating culture. I have found a great deal on Expedia.ie for a Bilbao Bay Holiday for 3 nights in a four star hotel, with your flights included and all for only €172.
Bilbao Bay Holiday
The San Juan de Gaztelugatxe is a stunning hiking trail that will provide you with some beautiful views of the ocean. There are also a whole host of world renowned museums that you could not possibly miss if you were ever to venture to this part of the world; namely the Guggenheim Museum and the Bilbao Museum of Fine Arts. Some of my other favourite spots were the relaxing Plaza Nueva, the hilltop vantage point of the Artxanda Funicular and also the natural beauty of the Cuevas de Pozalagua.
Your hotel for this deal will be the four star NH La Avanzada. It gives you pretty much direct access to a beach so you will still be able to enjoy that traditional sunny Spanish holiday vibe if that is what you seek. It has a very high rating of 4/5 on TripAdvisor and close by there are a great selection of restaurants and bars for you to wet your beak! ;) The best part about the Basque country for me is the restaurants offering of Pintxos (pronounced Pinchos). It is like a traditional Tapas only it is skewered. There are all different types and they are absolutely delicious when you are enjoying them with a few drinks.
The flights for this deal are with Ryanair between Dublin and Bilbao Airports. The times for the trip are pictured in the screenshot below and your exact dates are 03/09/2015 – 06/09/2015.
