I tailor-made a real bargain here for you. Book your flights with and your hotel via

I love Croatia as a destination, because it keeps this specific holiday atmosphere until the end of autumn. That’s why the time I picked for this trip is still very nice since the weather and the sea will still be warm enough to extend your summer! So you will fly from Dublin to Zadar and your accommodation is only a 17-minute taxi ride from the airport, so no exhausting trip to the hotel. The apartments and rooms of the guest house Idassa welcome you close to the city centre, beach and marina of Zadar. Only 4 people have reviewed the place on Tripadvisor, however all with *thumbs up* (5/5 on TripAd). When you click through to the booking on trivago you get to read many more reviews of the Idassa and it is mostly rated with more than 90%! The staff is incredibly friendly and will try their best to make yourself at home. What is great about the hotel, you get free bikes for your stay, so getting around will be easier and quicker. Pop out to the supermarket into city centre Zadar and make your shopping conveniently without spending money on a bus or walking too far.

You get to sleep in a double bed private room with an ensuite bathroom with wifi included. It is not equipped with a kitchen however, so you need to eat out. That again is super cheap, so don’t bother, you will be able still to keep this trip on a budget. The hotel features a beautiful garden with flowers and fruit trees and veggies growing, so help yourself :)

Definitely make sure you book a trip to the National Parks of the area (image below), you can do this at your hotel! The parks with the waterfalls are stunning and magical and will make an impression on your that you’ll never forget!
