There’s no better way to usher in the summer than to enjoy a relaxing and refreshingly cheap holiday in Portugal this May. I have found a great offer for you on for two people to spend one week in the gorgeous coastal city of Povoa de Varzim in the north of Portugal. Choose sunshine and sand over unpredictable Irish weather for a change! :)

Cheap Holiday in Portugal

Povóa de Varzim is full of brilliant activities for you to pack into your week long Portuguese adventure. Along the beautiful beach promenade you will find lots of amazing little food stalls where you can try out some of the local cuisine. If you’ve got a bit of a sweet tooth you will also find some great ice cream parlours where you can get a cone and walk hand in hand with your loved one. It is a lovely area too for renting out some bikes and exploring the coastline too. :)

The Sol Povoa Hotel is a great little hotel just a short walk from the seaside. It offers you a delicious free breakfast every morning and the rooms are kept in immaculate condition. It has a very high rating of 4.5/5 from 92 reviews on TripAdvisor and also won a Certificate of Excellence in 2014 too. I would recommend renting out a car (€25 per day) if you’re one who really likes to explore and you’re only a short spin away from the nearby city of Porto.

The flights will go between Dublin and Porto (08/05/2015 – 15/05/2015) with both flights being in the afternoon at reasonable enough times. :)

You also will be pleased to know that if you use the code GURU40 you will be able to avail of a 40 euro discount from the overall total on your package holiday. Just select the holiday, fill in all your details such as name and address as normal and when you reach the checkout screen where it asks for your card, input the code on the top left of the screen and enjoy the extra bit of cash for your holiday. :) The screenshot below is the price before the deduction is made just FYI :)
