Flights to Greece | All Inclusive in Greece | Greek Island Holidays | Best time to visit Greece

Why Greece?

Sure, Greece is a little further away from home than other destinations like Spain or Italy. But Greece has that certain magic about that that you just can’t find anywhere else. Maybe its the country’s rich and ancient history that adds a sense of mystery. Or maybe it’s the dozens of islands scattered across the Aegean Sea, each one as beautiful as the last. Or perhaps it’s the thought of wondering through peaceful whitewashed villages with their blue windows and doors, seeing the locals relax in the shade. Greece is all about taking things slow – do things at your own pace! While flights are a little more expensive compared to other European sun destinations, it’s unbelievably easy to find very cheap accommodation, helping to keep the cost of your holiday as low as possible.

Flights from Ireland to Greece

The best connections to Greece are found at Dublin airport. As well as direct flights from Dublin to Athens year-round, there are also seasonal direct flights to destinations such as Zakynthos, Crete, Rhodes, Kos and Corfu. Otherwise you’ll have a stop-over along the way! The same goes for Shannon, Cork, Knock and Kerry with one or two stop-overs to Greece, though prices from these airports are higher.

All Inclusive Holidays to Greece

Sometimes I come across all inclusive holiday packages to Greek islands such as Zakynthos and Rhodes. So if it’s nothing but pure relaxation you want, this is the perfect holiday for you! However Greece really is one of those destinations where self-catering can actually be just as good! You’ll not only get a cheaper price, but also have the opportunity to check out local tavernas and sample authentic local dishes. How about some tender souvlaki (σουβλάκι), mouth-watering moussaka (μουσακάς) or some delicious dolmades (ντολμάς)? There’s such a range of amazing dishes in Greece that foodies will totally get their money’s worth!

From Greek island holidays to city breaks

Greece is actually a pretty big country. Spread across dozens of islands and spanning some truly beautiful peninsulas, Greece’s unusual geography lends it a real sense of natural beauty that sets it apart from other Mediterranean destinations. Whether you’re looking for a summer by the beach, a taste of legendary nightlife or even an active holiday in the mountains, you can be sure that a holiday to Greece will suit everyone down to the ground. And the great thing is that Greece holidays offer fantastic value for money too! Here’s a small pick of my top destinations in Greece for Irish holidaymakers

Greek Islands – the best destinations

Crete | Kos | Rhodes | Zakynthos | Corfu | Santorini

Crete – the perfect blend of beaches and culture

Ah yes, Crete – I’m pretty sure this is the first Greek island that comes to everyone’s mind! Crete claims the title of not only being the largest island in Greece, but also the most popular choice for a Greece holiday. Here you’ll find long stretches of sandy beaches that are a great choice for families and couples alike, typical seaside towns and resorts and hotels to suit all budgets. But a holiday to Crete can be so much more varied than you think. Explore the wonderful mountain ranges that shelter sleepy villages and learn more about the island’s long, ancient history. Towns such as Chania, Heraklion, Knossos & Rethymnon feature everything from Venetian harbours to Ancient Greek monuments.

Kos – heavenly beaches and vibrant nightlife

Kos, situated in the Dodecanese archipelago, is easily one of the most exciting Greek islands. With the perfect combination of wicked beaches and lively resort towns, Kos just keeps on giving! For the best nightlife in Kos, you should head to the island capital or the the town of Kardamena – clubs will cater to almost all musical tastes and you’re guaranteed to find those places you’ll just keep coming back to. And if your head’s a bit sore the next day, no bother! Just spend the day chilling on the stunning beaches and let the sound of the waves soothe your hangover. Once you’ve perked up you can then go off to explore the many Ancient Greek ruins dotted all around the island.

Rhodes – where history comes to life

One of my personal favourites! Rhodes is the largest Dodecanese island and easily boasts some of the best sights for all you history geeks out there! Wander the medieval streets of Rhodes Town, marvel at the Grand Master’s Palace and hike up to the ancient acropolis in Lindos. The landscapes may be a little rugged at times, but it’s so worth exploring just for the views of the coastlines alone! On top of all that you’re spoilt for choice when it comes to beaches, and there are even several lagoons and bays to swim in. To add that special touch to your holiday to Rhodes, consider getting a ferry to Sými (Σύμη) – a typical Greek harbour town that makes for the perfect day out!

Zakynthos – iconic coastlines and idyllic beaches

Zakynthos is an island that needs absolutely no introduction. Everyone has seen pictures of Navagio Beach – powder-white sands nestled between steep cliffs that shelter an incredible shipwreck. And don’t get me started on how blue that sea is… Yes, for beach lovers and sun worshippers, Zakynthos’ coastline features some truly breathtaking beaches that have managed to stay away from the prying eyes of mass tourism. And it’s not just sunbathing that’s tip-top either. Zakynthos is a fantastic choice for a diving holiday! There are over 30 areas where you can go diving, and you can even go swimming with turtles over at – you guessed it – Turtle Beach!

Corfu – a nature lover’s paradise

Another popular choice for Irish holidaymakers, a holiday to Corfu promises plenty of green and relaxation. The nature and foliage is so lush compared to other Greek islands that it really sets it apart from the rest, especially if you love the outdoors. Hills and cliffs offer wonderful views of sheltered bays and beaches, and there’s a whole host of activities on offer such as rock climbing, diving, windsurfing and kayaking. For families looking to have a chilled out time, Corfu is an excellent choice too. Shallow seas, relaxed beaches and even a water park will certain keep your little ones busy! I can particularly recommend the beaches at Sidari and Kavos.

Santorini – the epitome of romance

Easily one of the most iconic Greek islands. The shimmering seas, whitewashed houses and blue domes are pretty much what everyone associates with Greece and it’s truly a one-of-a-kind place to be. Holidays to Santorini are all about relaxation. Chill on the terrace overlooking the famous caldera and watch those legendary sunsets with your own eyes – these are moments you’ll always remember. While Santorini can be done on the cheap, the island truly excels in luxury holidays with all sorts of breathtaking hotels offering those iconic views, incredible infinity pools and utmost extravagance. And while Santorini isn’t really the island you’d go to if you’re looking to go for a swim or sunbathe, you’ve still got some lovely volcanic beaches available to you.

Holidays to Greece – the best time to go

I’ll leave it up to you which destination in Greece you want to go for! I often post great deals for package holidays to Greece so be sure to keep checking back!  The best time to go to Greece is between May and October when the weather is at its best, but as always the largest crowds will be there in the peak summer months. If you want to enjoy some nice weather but avoid the crowds, then consider travelling in September and October, or even earlier on in the year such as May and June. That way you’ll still have pleasant climates but avoid the crowds when they’re at their busiest.
