Dubai has become a big destination in recent years and now tourists are travelling in numbers to this man-made oasis in the desert. We take you through the best deals for Dubai holidays from Dublin.
Dubai has plenty to offer visitors year round. Home to the tallest building in the world, the Burj Khalifa stands at an incredible 828 metres. There is the impressive man made archipelago that is The World and it is made up of 300 islands. There are also the Palm Islands which are officially the worlds 3 largest man-made islands and are connected to the city by road.
When all the construction marvels have tired you out then there are great beaches and shopping districts to be explored. Old Bastakiya District lets you experience how Dubai looked before the Sheiks money gave the city a huge facelift. You can also visit Hatta Heritage village which recreates an old mountain village comprised of palm trees and mud houses.
Should you wish to tailor your own trip, flights start at around €460 round-trip from Dublin to Dubai on kayak.com with Turkish Airlines. Another option is to fly to London with Ryanair where KLM operate regular flights from Heathrow to Dubai for around €380 return. This way you could fly in or around the €400 range with just a minor stopover in London.
If you are looking to book a hotel room then check out ebookers.ie. They have deals on their website starting from €569 per person sharing for 10 nights in a top Dubai hotel. They also offers flights and hotels together for Dubai holidays from Dublin but the flights they offer are more expensive than the ones you can find on Kayak yourself so you are better off booking flights separately.
