Living in Ireland, we're quite lucky to be in close proximity to so many stunning cities across Europe.

With affordable flights available to any number of gorgeous destinations, there's never much of an excuse needed to pack up and head away on a city break.

Why enjoy an Archway with mates at home when you could do it in a city you've never seen before?

Here are some of the best spots around Europe to leave it all behind for a few days...

Riga, Latvia

The Latvian capital is one of Europe's underrated gems. The largest city of the three Balkan states, there's plenty to see and do to fill a weekend.

Liverpool, England

Our neighbours across the water are no more than a half hour flight away.

Take in all The Beatles culture you can handle in the home of the Fab Four.

Bratislava, Slovakia

One of the smallest capital cities in Europe, what it lacks in size, it more than makes up for in history, culture and sheer beauty.
