New travel series featuring holiday destinations with direct flights from Ireland. This week Joe Lindsay and Aoibhinn Ní Shúilleabháin report from Lisbon, investigating whether the Portuguese capital can rival the Algarve as a holiday destination. They'll be exploring attractions in and around Lisbon based on recommendations from the public on the Getaways website www.getaways2013.com. Highlights include excursions to the nearby fairytale town of Sintra and to the beach at Estoril. And in this week's short Getaway, Joe goes glamping, or glamorous camping, in County Leitrim.
Getaways is a co-production with BBC Northern Ireland and RTÉ One.
