Got a spare weekend coming up and don’t want to squander it just lazing about at home? Or are you in the mood for exploring pretty cities, ones that are proper hidden gems? Then this Ghent weekend break is what you’ve been looking for!
Ghent Weekend Break
I’ve managed to put together a fantastic deal for a short weekend getaway in June to Ghent, one of the largest cities in Belgium. You may be thinking “huh, doesn’t sound too exciting!”, but believe me when I say that this is one seriously pretty city. With a blend of architectural styles, dozens of canals and cosy restaurants and bars, Ghent is perfect for a short break away!
This Hotels.com and Skyscanner deal comes with your return flights from Dublin to Brussels International, and after a short hop on the train you’ll be right in the centre of Ghent! There you’ll be staying at the NH Gent Belfort Hotel, a great 4* hotel in an unbeatable location. The stunning city hall is opposite the hotel, and just around the corner are the famous belfry tower, the cathedral and Braunplein square. It’s fair to say that you’re right in the action!
Ghent is a city where even just exploring all the little side streets and alleyways is a joy in itself, so just take things slow and soak up the vibrant atmosphere here! Along the Leie Canal you’ll find gorgeous former guildhouses. Pakhuis is worth checking out – it’s an old warehouse that’s been converted into a restaurant, so book yourselves in for a table! :)
