Cheap Flights, Holidays and City Breaks to Reykjavik, Iceland from Ireland

Reykjavik is a fantastic city for any tourist to visit at any time of the year, and we offer cheap flights, holidays and city breaks to Reykjavik from Ireland at the lowest prices available. .

Reykjavik is the capital of Iceland and it is the largest city in the country. The Icelandic capital is located in southwestern Iceland and it is certainly a visitor’s paradise.

The Icelandic capital is a small and a very intimate city with a very big personality. It has some striking landmarks that you have to visit on your holiday or short city break, including mountains, interesting sculptures, amazing old and new buildings and a very picturesque lake.

There are some gems that you have to see during your Reykjavik holiday or short city break including Hofdi House, the Imagine Peace Tower, Hallgrimskirkja Church, Mount Esja, City Hall and The Pearl.

Hofdi is a house in northern Reykjavik that was built in 1909. It was built for the French counsel Jean-Paul Brillouin in Iceland and it was the exclusive residence of the businessman and poet Einar Benediktsson (1884-1940).

Hofdi House is best known as the location for the 1986 Reykjavik Summit meeting involving US President Ronald Reagan and Mikhail Gorbachev of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republic’s.The house is believed to be occupied by a ghost known as ‘’the White Lady,’’ which was experienced by a former British Ambassador who once occupied the house.A Japanese millionaire had an exact replica of the house built in Japan.

The house has welcomed other renowned guests including Marlene Dietrich, Winston Churchill and Queen Elizabeth II.  Hofdi House is located at Félagstún and a visit to the house can be combined with a pleasant stroll along Reykjavik’s waterfront.

When on a holiday or city break in Reykjavik, visit the Imagine Peace Tower. The Imagine Peace Tower is a memorial to the Beatles legend John Lennon from his widow Yoko Onno. It is located on Vioey Island in Kollafjorour Bay. It consists of a tall ‘’tower of light,’’ that is projected from a white stone monument, which has the words ‘’Imagine Peace,’’ carved into in 24 languages. These words and the tower are a reference to John Lennon’s song, ‘’Imagine.’’

The tower consists of fifteen searchlights with prisms that act as mirrors that reflect the column of light vertically into the sky from a ten metre wide wishing well. On a clear night, it appears to reach an altitude of at least 4000m.

A trip to Reykjavik City Hall is a must on your holiday or city break. It is an impressive building that is located on the northern shore of Lake Tjornin. It connects nature, water and plenty of bird life to the centre of the city. A favourite amongst tourists and locals alike, is the enormous Relief Map of Iceland that are situated in the City Hall’s exhibition halls. It is very interesting to examine it before and after your excursions of the Icelandic capital.

Mount Esja is very popular mountain among hikers. It is located in Kjalarnes, southwest of Iceland, 10km to the north of Reykjavik.  This mountain at  914 metres high offers visitors panoramic views of the city below.

Hallgrimskirkja Church is a must-see landmark in Reykjavik. It is the city's main tourist attraction and its tower can be seen from almost anywhere in the Icelandic capital.

Make sure to visit the largest church in Iceland. This 73-metre high church tower offers stunning views of the Icelandic capital. Hallgrimskirkja Church is located at the top of the central arts and designs shopping street of Skolavordustigur. The former state architect Gudjon Samuelson designed the concrete building and it is meant to resemble volcanic basalt rock formations. The church was built over forty years ago and it was opened to the public in 1986.

In front of the church is a statue of the Icelandic born Leifur Eiriksson, who was also known as Leif the Lucky. He was the first European to discover America, around 1,000 AD. Unfortunately, he forgot to let anyone know where it was, so Christopher Columbus got the opportunity to discover it five hundred years later.

You are more than welcome to attend a Sunday service and get a glimpse of Iceland’s largest church organ. The church tower is open everyday and if you like splendid vistas, it is definitely worth a visit.

For those of you who are visiting Reykjavik for health and wellness purposes, you will be pleasantly surprised of what the Icelandic capital has to offer. You will find amazing thermal pools that are filled with geothermal heated water and designed to sooth away the stresses of modern life. Yet another great reason to talk to us about a cheap flights, holiday or city break to Reykjavik from Ireland.

Climate

Temperatures very rarely drop below −15 °C (5 °F) in the winter. This is because the Icelandic coastal weather in winter is moderated by the warm waters of the Gulf Stream. The climate is sub-polar oceanic (Koppen Cfc), and the city is on the northern edge of the temperate zone. The city's coastal location does make it prone to wind, however, and gales are common in winter. Summers are cool, with temperatures fluctuating between 10 to 15 °C (50 to 59 °F), sometimes exceeding 20 °C (68 °F). Reykjavík is not a particularly wet city, but it nevertheless averages 148 days with measurable precipitation every year.

Eating Out

Trying out the local cuisine and traditional delicacies is definitely one of the most pleasant experiences of any holiday abroad. This is no exception for visitors to Iceland. 

 

With its pristine nature, Iceland isn't just a place to feast your eyes. This refreshing environment also produces high-quality ingredients, from rich dairy products and geothermal greenhouse vegetables to free-range lamb and seafood fresh off the boat.


Iceland, in particular the Reykjavik area, offers a diversity of dining establishments and cuisines to satisfy all taste buds and budgets, from traditional Nordic fare to international flavors: American Cuisine, Italian Cuisine, International Cuisine, Vegetarian Cuisine, Asian Food, Fast Food and Cafes and Bars.
Getting Around

By Bus

Getting around Reykjavik is easy when using the reliable local bus service, Stræto. On weekday’s buses run approximately every 20 minutes and during evenings and weekends this is increased to every 30 minutes. Most of the city is covered by bus routes and there is a flat fare of ISK 250 per journey. If you are catching a connecting bus it is possible to obtain a skiptimidi, transfer ticket, from the driver of the first bus which will waive the fare on the second bus if used within 45 minutes. If during your stay you will be using the bus service more frequently there is the option of buying the Reykjavik Tourist Card. This card allows unlimited bus travel for a certain time period, usually one, two or three days. Information can be found at the bus stations and Tourist Information Centre.

By Foot

Reykjavik city centre is ideal for walking, the footpaths and walkways are well maintained and there is no better way to take in the beauty of the town. City walk maps are available from the Tourist Information Centre and provide the walker with a guide to the city and the places of interest scattered throughout the city.

ByTaxi

There are several taxi companies based in Reykjavik all of which charge standard fares and have official mileage meters. Taxis can be either pre-booked or hailed in the street and many offer day tours to the surrounding area. It is possible to travel the 48km from the airport to Reykjavik by taxi and the average price would be around 8,000 ISK, equivalent to about 60 GBP.

Nightlife

Whether you visit Reykjavik in the summer with 24 hour sunlight or in the freezing cold winter when the capital sees only few hours of daylight, you can always count on a vibrant nightlife.

You couldn't possibly plan a trip to Iceland without learning about the crazy Reykjavik nightlife along the way. Reykjavik at night is a place where mass public drunkenness is completely socially acceptable from Thursday evening to Sunday morning, even though it's technically illegal. The locals are usually not in a hurry to get to the downtown area, so don't expect to see big crowds out there before midnight. When they eventually get there however, they will party until the break of dawn. You may stay out just as long as the locals at bars, clubs and pubs.

Grillmarkaðurinn is one of the city’s most trendy restaurant located in a Art Nouveau style building in center Reykjavik.


The Laundromat Cafe

Shopping

Icelandic design has been in the limelight over the past few years and impressive exhibitions by Icelandic designers have received well-deserved attention for their originality and resourcefulness. This has been reflected in an increased awareness of the importance of design in Icelandic culture, and not least for improving the economic performance of Iceland's business sector—good design adds to the value of quality products, enhancing the competitiveness of those companies that give attention to the importance of design.

Shopping is something of a national pastime in Iceland that is eagerly shared with visitors. While the general price level is similar to the other Nordic countries, cosmopolitan buyers will appreciate Iceland for its particularly competitive fashion wear and designer labels.

Tax-free shopping in Iceland

Tax-free shopping is widespread and visitors should check out: quality woolen goods, maps of Iceland, Viking jewelry, runes, rune calendars, flowers, Icelandic design clothing and jewelry, books about Iceland and the Icelandic nature, paintings by Icelandic artists, hand -crafted sculptures, Icelandic sweets and chocolates, smoked salmon, Icelandic design furniture and more. There’s always something new and exciting in Iceland no matter the time of year.
