Tiernan’s Trip to San Sebastian

Hi everyone! Tiernan’s taking another one for the team here. Which is very pertinent since we are in THE LAST TWO WEEKS OF RACHELINIRELAND.COM – more on that this Friday.

But first, let’s have a little look around the seaside city of San Sebastian in Spain’s Basque Region. Tiernan managed to film a little bit during a quick work-related trip at the beginning of December. It looks like a beautiful little place! We will definitely try to get back there together and do some more exploring. Judging by the pub spreads, it really looks like the sort of place I need to visit!

Apparently it’s a bit like tapas, but not. The bars have food laid out. You order and drink and fill a plate, then you move on to another bar and do the same. And so on and so forth.

Apart from eating, Tiernan managed to get in a few decent walks. Two of the best tips for exploring a new European town are always:

  1. Head to the old town and,
  2. Head to the highest point

Tiernan managed to do both in one day!

Have you ever been to San Sebastian before? Any tips for a long weekend away there?

  1. I was in the French Basque country last May and we spent a day in San Sebastian, not enough to discover the ins and outs of the city, but the beach was wonderful, and the old part of the city really is beautiful. For architecture lovers, it’s a treat and for food lovers as well 😉 They don’t speak much English though, so you’d have to brush up on your Spanish basics before going there!
