  1. Ireland

Those who don’t care much for sweltering heat and prefer city excursions to seaside escapades will find Ireland a dreamy alternative to traditional sunny beach holidays. Its capital of Dublin is considered something of a tourist town, as it tends to be where the international adventurers flock. And whilst there is plenty to explore there, including a rich and fascinating history, if you were to ask a local many of them would sooner recommend Cork or Galway for a more authentic experience of the Emerald Isle. Wherever you go, you’re likely to encounter live music lining the streets and a wide array of fine drinking establishments.  And while it may not be famed for its bright sandy beaches, Ireland has a few beauty spots of its own too!

  1. Portugal

Every holidaymaker has its own unique criteria for the perfect vacation, but no matter what you’re looking for, Portugal has a little of everything. From paradisial beaches to bustling city life and even a few lush countryside hotspots if you know where to look, this glorious country has plenty to offer. And there’s a good chance you’ll never want to leave once you get a glimpse of the fabulous architecture, including gorgeous houses, apartments, and villas as showcased by real estate gurus Property Lisbon. It’s worth noting that while the country has become a popular escape for expats in recent years, it is also a favourite for holiday home investors too!
