Barbados Holidays from Ireland
With 92km of tropical beaches, there’s a reason why Barbados is known as ‘the pearl of the Caribbean’. The pristine West Coast of Barbados, or the ‘Platinum Coast’ is where you’ll find picture-perfect beaches - even one with glistening pink sands! If you love to explore what’s under the sea, Barbados is surrounded by coral reefs and underground caverns.
Bridgetown, the capital of Barbados, is a lively town filled with bars, cafes and great nightlife. As you walk its streets, you’ll feel the rich history of the town and the island. Explore its UNESCO World Heritage Site garrison, which was the largest in the British Colonies during the 18th and 19th centuries. Or, go and explore the 2 of the remaining Jacobean mansions left in the western world. St. Nicholas Abbey in the north of the island is open to the public. If exploring history isn’t your main priority, its white sandy beaches are perfect for lazy days soaking up the sun or going on underwater adventures!
