Lisbon is a fantastic option for a city break. It’s Portugal’s capital and largest city, and one of continental Europe’s most western cities. Is it still on your bucket list? Then luckily you’re in the perfect place. Let me inspire you with some fantastic Lisbon city breaks.
The Climate in Lisbon
Lisbon, which is found on the western side of the Iberian Peninsula, has a Mediterranean climate. Summers are mainly hot and dry, while in winter it can be rainy and quite cold. However, Lisbon can still have the warmest winters of all European cities, along with Barcelona and Valencia. The coldest month is January, when it can be between 10 and 18 degrees. Nights in January are still rather mild, as the mercury reaches eight degrees. August is the warmest month, with average daily temperatures of 25 to 32 degrees. Nighttime is also hot at 18 degrees. The water temperature can be around 20 degrees, perfect for a dip in the pool at your hotel. The summers are also super sunny, as the sun shines for an average of 11 hours every day.
Flights from Ireland to Lisbon
There are a couple of options for you if your travel plans include Lisbon city breaks. Lisbon has one international airport, Humberto Delgado Airport. This is found 7km north of the city centre. A second and smaller airport, Cascais Aerodrome, offers domestic flights to Bragança, Portimão, Viseu and Vila Real. So, getting to (and around Portugal from) Lisbon is simple. All you need to do is pick out your travel dates and get booking!

Famous landmarks in Lisbon
Lisbon is an amazing and historic city, with so many wonderful neighbourhoods to visit. There are also lots of attractions for you to see throughout your visit here.
Alfama is one of the city’s most Instagram friendly neighbourhoods. Taking a wander down the hills and discover the traditional side of Lisbon. It’s one of the most untouched areas of the city so far, but do try to get there before it becomes too gentrified and urbanised. The narrow lanes are ideal for strolling along and losing yourself in your thoughts.
Another wonderful neighbourhood is Belém, which is found in the south west of the city. The name is taken from the Portuguese for Bethlehem. It’s where a lot of the city’s most recognisable landmarks can be found. Be sure you take a tram down here and visit the Belém Tower, a military outpost built to protect the River Tagus from attacks from pirates and enemy battalions. Climb to the top for an incredible view of the city.
Castelo de São Jorge
It’s hard to not see this towering castle from almost every vantage point of the city. The red rooftops of the city’s buildings are in perfect contrast to the sandy stone walls of the castle, which dates as far back as the second Century. There are three tours daily, operating in Portuguese, English and Spanish. Be sure you book to come and visit this gorgeous and historic castle.
