Barcelona City Break Deals

City Breaks to Barcelona

The proudly independent capital of Catalunya, Barcelona is a vibrant and cosmopolitan city, rich in medieval architecture and history. The city’s focal point is Las Ramblas, stretching from Plaza de Catalunya to the harbour. Along the central promenade of the Ramblas flower sellers and street entertainers provide atmosphere and colour.

Information & Facts

Things to do

City Breaks to Barcelona from Dublin offer the opportunity to enjoy imaginative architecture of Gaudi which can be observed in many parts of Barcelona, most notably at the splendid Sagrada Familia cathedral and the Guell Park. Why not venture around the gothic quarter with its famous cathedral and narrow medieval streets teeming with ancient buildings, many of them housing galleries, cafes, boutiques, and tapas bars where you can sample some of the local cuisine on offer.

Cheap weekend breaks to Barcelona from Ireland would not be complete without a little retail therapy and there are no shortage of stores for you to peruse from Las Ramblas, through Placa de Catalunya along Passeig de Gràcia and up Avenue Diagonal. With last minute city breaks and short break deals to Barcelona on offer there is even more reason to explore the art on display at the Museo Picasso.
