Last Minute Easter Breaks on Newstalk


I always say you get much better value and choice of course the further you book in advance and I recommend using a travel agent to give you some security with your booking if you can’t travel for whatever reason. But it’s good to know that there is still availability out there. I have pulled together some ideas for Easter that I found with reputable travel agents.


Easter is early this year so Europe won’t exactly be hot hot but some countries are extra pleasant this time of year. Spain is always popular and Valencia seems to be extra popular with Irish travellers. I went over in 2022 and have to say it’s one of the nicest cities in Europe. It has been voted one of the best cities to live in for good reason.

Ryanair fly direct from Dublin and you can pick up cheap flights in May – I bagged a return for just over €80 but if you leave it to easter weekend. You can still go march 30th for 3 nights on and stay in a city centre hotel with click and go for around €600 – a bit more if you want to stay for 7 nights.

Cassidy Travel City Breaks

Cassidy Travel have a couple – but bear in mind these prices are from last week and after the bank holiday they may have gone up as air fares get booked. Read up on Amsterdam and the Czech Republic on my website reviews

Celebrity Cruises with Sunway Travel

There is still availability on a Celebrity cruise of Greece and I was sent this offer from Sunway Travel – it works out at €1750 pp and includes connecting flights and full board you also get an overnight stay in Athens. I love celebrity cruises because they are luxurious and the great thing about cruising is you pack once and wake up in a different destination every day.

Celebrity Eclipse 

This gorgeous cruise on Celebrity Infinity includes luxurious accommodations like Concierge Class and AquaClass with exclusive dining at Blu, various dining options such as the Thellis Restaurant and Las Olas Café and Grill. The Celebrity Theatre  has Broadway style shows and more fun is available at the casino, bars and lounges. Pools, a Solarium with a thalassotherapy pool can be enjoyed at the covered cabanas. There is a movie screen at the Outdoor Retreat. The gym and Canyon Ranch Spa Club offer health and wellbeing. 24-hour room service, butler service in suites, and personalized service with a guest to staff ratio of nearly 2:1 means you will be spoiled from start to finish.
