Due to the popularity of the Brussels Christmas Market deal I posted yesterday, today’s deal of the day is flights from Cork to Budapest, Hungary and 4 nights in a 3* hotel for €191 per person based on 2 people sharing.
Budapest is renowned for hosting one of Europe’s best Christmas Markets. Budapest Christmas Fair and Winter Festival usually starts from mid November to New Year’s Day. It takes place in Vorosmarty Square in the heart of the city and is considered the best Christmas Market in the city. There is also the Advent Feast at the Basilica, which occurs in front of Budapest most famous cathedral, St Stephen’s Basilica. The dates for the Advent Feast at the Basilica still need to be confirmed. If you get tired of the markets, then there are also the hot spring pools at Szechenyi Baths or take a river cruise along the Danube.
The flights are with Ryanair leaving Cork on Sunday the 8th of December and returning on Thursday the 12th of December. Below is a link to the flights, click on this to be brought to the Skyscanner website. Please note as Ryanair have changed their baggage policy, I have added priority and 2 cabin bags to the overall price which brings the price for flights to €103 pp.
The hotel is the 3* Ibis Budapest City, which is rated a fabulous 8.6 out of 10 with guests from Booking.com. This hotel is a 20 minute walk to St Stephen’s Basilica or Vorosmarty Square but if you don’t feel like walking there is a metro station right beside the hotel. The rooms are exactly what you would expect from an Ibis hotel being clean and comfortable.
A double or twin room at Ibis Budapest City is available for €88 per person for a 4 night stay, which is based on 2 people sharing. This brings the total cost for flights and 4 nights accommodation to €191 pp!
