If you’re looking for an less obvious destination for Valentine’s Day, or just a romantic weekend, why not consider one the following ‘off the beaten track’ but still utterly fantastic locations?

Galway, Ireland

Dublin, whilst a vibrant and friendly city, can at times seems overwhelmed by exuberant hen and stag parties. For a taste of unspoilt Ireland, head to gorgeous Galway. This medieval city is packed full of character, and has a busy cultural and social scene without all the tourist traps. Galway Bay is remarkably beautiful, and often deserted, or head to the Aran Islands to find the most perfect, long sandy beaches imaginable.

Reykjavik, Iceland

Reykjavik may be just a tow hour flight away, but you may feel you have landed in a whole new world. For stunning natural scenery, Iceland really is a hard location to beat. Geothermal pools sit in the landscape alongside lagoons, with mountains all around and the glorious Atlantic coastline. The city itself is renowned for its National Theatre, and, of course, its food – try a traditional fresh from the ocean fish seafood platter tone of the many renowned restaurants that crowd the streets of this lovely city.

Valencia, Spain

Get a taste of the real Spin by heading to Valencia for your short break. Sun worshippers will delight in the miles of unspoilt golden beaches and the delightful warm climate. Alternatively, if you are after a taste of Spanish passion – head straight to the Las Falles festival where you will be swept up in a positive whirlwind of fiesta and wild celebration. Finish the day with a bowl of local speciality paella looking over the ocean -just perfect.

Lviv, Ukraine

Prague is a fabulous city, but, like Dublin suffers from a steady influx of over-excitable stags and hens enjoying their pre-wedding celebrations. If Eastern Europe takes your fancy, take a chance on Lviv. A charming location comprising pretty cobbled streets, and stunning baroque architecture dominated by an ancient castle, this is the perfect setting for a romantic weekend escape away from the crowds.

Krakow, Poland

Another challenger to the domination of Prague, Krakow is inarguably the most delightful city in Poland, and is absolutely packed full of charm and charisma. Culturally rich, the southern end of the city boasts a splendid gothic cathedral and dramatic castle. The Jewish quarter is packed full of quirky bars and restaurants that are perfect to relax in - and to soak up the atmosphere of this unique place.
