Algarve Resorts


Algarve has remained a firm favourite for Irish tourists throughout the years, and with its great food, wine, beach resorts, waterparks, and eclectic nightlife, all available at an affordable price, it’s no wonder why!

Flight times to the Algarve are just under 3 hours from Ireland, but you’ll feel like you’re in a different world once you step onto the golden sand of Albufeira or Praia Da Rocha. At Praia da Marinha the water is so clean you can see the ocean floor from above. And it’s not just the beaches that are beautiful!

The traditional, whitewashed buildings and cobbled streets across Algarve can often be deceiving, as their simple exterior masks the remarkable architecture and impressive designs hidden inside. The interior of São Lorenzo Church in Almancil, for example, is covered from floor to ceiling by traditional, azulejo tiles. Installed in the 18th century, these ceramic tiles can often be found in buildings across Portugal, and are the perfect example of the hidden beauty this area has to discover.
