A city of stunning architectural and artistic heritage, Bilbao is situated on the banks of the Nervión River.
You'll discover tucked-away gems like Playa Primera de El Sardinero and Playa de El Puntal. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Bilbao: San Sebastian - Donostia (Plaza de la Constitucion, Food Tours, &more), cueva del castillo (in Puente Viesgo) and Santander (Monumento a Los Raqueros & Room Escape Games). There's still lots to do: walk around Dona Casilda Park, make a trip to Plaza Moyua, pause for some serene contemplation at Iglesia de Santa Maria de los Reyes, and enjoy the sand and surf at Playa De Berria.

To see more things to do, traveler tips, and more tourist information, read our Bilbao trip itinerary planner.

Dublin, Ireland to Bilbao is an approximately 5.5-hour flight. You can also do a combination of bus and train; or do a combination of ferry and car. You'll lose 1 hour traveling from Dublin to Bilbao due to the time zone difference. Traveling from Dublin in September, expect Bilbao to be somewhat warmer, temps between 30°C and 17°C. On the 19th (Tue), wrap the sightseeing up by early afternoon so you can travel to Malaga.
