Formerly known as the Little Paris of the East, Bucharest is well known for its rejuvenated Old Town with its meandering cobbled lane ways. Bucharest is a hit for Irish tourists as it is possible to travel to Transylvania to see Bran Castle, the former residence of the man who inspired Count Dracula, Vlad the Impaler. Hauntingly beautiful it is about two and a half hours from the capital and many tour companies offer day trips to Bran Castle and Peles Castle.
The flights from Dublin are with Ryanair, who are offering very cheap 60EUR return flights. The dates for this travel are Monday 23rd April to Thursday 26th April, see screenshot below.
The hotel is the 4 star Old City Bucharest NF Hotel which receives an 8.3 out of 10 with Booking.com reviewers and a 9.1 for location.
