Things to Do in Portugal

  • Be sure to visit Lisbon. Europe’s answer to San Francisco, Lisbon is brimming with sandy beaches, historical architecture, interesting museums, trendy bars, cool cafes, and even yellow cable cars! 
  • Unwind on the gorgeous golden beaches of the Algarve. Blue-green seas, sun-kissed sands, and incredible surfing, the Algarve is famous for its beaches.
  • Sample some delicious Portuguese cuisine. Be sure to try Pasteis de Belem, our favourite custard and cinnamon sweet treat.
  • Pay a visit to the legendary ‘Quinta da Regaleira’ located near Sintra. A pretty palace featuring underground caves, inverted towers, serene lakes and endless gardens, Quinta da Regaleira looks like it’s straight out of a fairy tale.

 

Best Time to Visit

Portugal weather tends remain quite warm all year round. Summers are hot, dry and often crowded, with temperatures rising to 35 – 40° in July and August. Winters tend to be more wet and windy although sunny days are not too rare either. 

Probably the best time to visit Portugal would be around May and early June, when the weather is gorgeous and the summer rush has yet to hit the beaches. 

Visit in February for Canraval. Lisbon and the towns of the Algarve tend to have the biggest celebrations, however the Entrudo dos Comprades, near Lamego, is best for a more traditional affair. 

Take a trip in early May for Queima das Fitas, the “burning of the ribbons”, celebrating the end of the academic year, reaches its drunken apogee in Coimbra and other university towns.

Visit Agueda in July for the Agitagueda Art Festival and witness hundreds of brightly-coloured umbrellas floating above the city streets as part of a dazzling public art exhibition.

 

Why We Love It

Becci “I love Portugal, it’s one of my favourite European destinations. Northern Portugal and Lisbon are great for city breaks, and Cascais, Ericeira and Estoril region are amazing for any surfers out there. The Algarve is one of the top destinations for Irish people on their summer hols and no wonder”.

Date:22nd June 2019Flight Booking:MANCHESTER Comment:Annmarie was very helpful. She provided great customer service, information about my trip and options available to me. A pleasure to deal with, which is why Go Hop is my first choice for travel arrangements every time.
Date:21st June 2019Flight Booking:INVERNESS Comment:I was looking at accommodation in Inverness on a website that advertises hotel accommodation, and there were only two rooms left on the site for my room of interest, in spite of the fact that I was looking at a booking almost eleven months away. I booked the room and then I had to book flights to Inverness. I found flights on gohop.ie that I could use for a weekend away, that would allow me to comfortably arrive at the hotel before the end of the check in period. I was comfortable using gohop.ie to book the flights because I used the service to book flights in the past and they never let me down.
