HOLIDAYS AT CHRISTMAS WITH ABBEY TRAVEL
By Sheila Hendrick
Thinking of taking off on a holiday this Christmas? Having trouble deciding where to go? Good job you’re reading our blog!
Going on sun holidays and city breaks around Christmas time is something Irish people are doing more and more of. It turns out that some of us are not too fond of the endless rain, chilling frost, gripping winds, or the prospect of a white Christmas!
We have put together a list of popular destinations that have been big hits among our customers during the Christmas season. Here they are…
1. CHRISTMAS IN THE SUN: THE CANARY ISLANDS
The Canary Islands are a firm favourite as a Christmas holiday destination. Lanzarote, Tenerife, Gran Canaria, and Fuerteventura are all havens for Christmas sun worshippers. Given their location off the west coast of Africa, Christmas holiday makers can expect to enjoy temperatures ranging from the low to mid-twenties. If you fancy relaxing on the beach, enjoying a round of golf, exploring on a bike or sampling a vibrant nightlife, the Canary Islands should be your first port of call. Indeed, the Canary Islands are a paradise for a spot of water sports. Fuerteventura – the windiest of the islands, is particularly ideal for windsurfers.
And don’t worry about missing out on the seasonal festivities, as Christmas and – in particular – New Year’s Eve, are celebrated in a big way. It will probably be the best Christmas you’ll ever experience.
2. CHRISTMAS IN THE CITY: COPENHAGEN
If you are more of a city-lover, a trip to beautiful Copenhagen is an ideal break in the run up to the festive season. Christmas in Tivoli Gardens is a well-loved tradition among both tourists and the people of Copenhagen. Whether or not you are a market-enthusiast, the Tivoli Christmas Market has something for everyone. We are talking sweets, decorations, lights, and of course entertainment, for all. The enchanting Christmas atmosphere from the stalls and the smells captivate everyone – young and old, and from far and wide.
3. CHRISTMAS IN DUBAI

If you are willing to travel a little bit further, and you are looking for something uber-luxurious, look no further than Dubai this Christmas. We’ve spoken of our love for Dubai a few times here on the Abbey Travel blog, and we think that Christmas is as good a time as any to visit this vibrant melting pot of cultures. If you are a cross between a beach enthusiast and a city-lover, Dubai is the perfect place for you. With glorious beaches on the edge of a magnificent horizon of skyscrapers, Dubai will give you a Christmas you will never forget. Dubai’s deserts offer a unique dimension to your Christmas getaway – how about a desert safari or a spot of sand-boarding?
