Ok, I was trying to get you a good holiday that you can go on during your summer holidays, so I stumbled across this great hotel deal from Travelbird.co.uk and have added flights from BudgetAir.ie.

You save 35% with the hotel offer and can be sure you stay at one of the nicest beaches at the Costa Brava just north of Spain. Enjoy the sandy beaches of the Mediterranean Sea, go for a nice, refreshing swim in the crystal clear water and treat yourself to delicious food and wine. Make it your ultimate summer holiday! You’re flying from Dublin to Barcelona airport and via two trains you get to your hotel. The area you will stay in is called Mataró, a wonderful town on the seaside. So a trip to Barcelona is possible too! Whether you are an outdoorsy type, a beach person or the sightseeing kind, with this deal you get your money’s worth, since apart from the sea and fantastic nature the area also has a beautiful old town on offer. There you can explore the picturesque architecture that shapes Mataró and discover lovely boutiques and restaurants.

The deal from Travelbird includes either a 7 or a 14-nights stay. In this example I have chosen the first option and catered flights to this deal. The 3-star Castell de Mata (73% on Tripadvisor) welcomes you right at the sea front. Stay at their comfortably equipped rooms that have wifi and a great terrace from where you can take in the wonderful view across the coast, the green gardens or the stunning mountains of the region. Apart from the beach you can also relax at the pool area and children are also welcome at this hotel. Kids under 5 years of age even go for free, between 6-17 they get a 35% reduction. Breakfast is included in the deal and at your own cost you can also take advantage of the restaurant of the hotel and indulge in delicious Catalan cuisine and of course loads and loads of tapas! Of cours Mataró gives you plenty of opportunity to go for drinks or visit a nice restaurant as well, so don’t worry about that. Sun, Summer, Food, my idea of a perfect holiday!
