    Me and a few pals have been searching around for a way to go see Barcelona around march, but every price we have been quoted is in the £350+ range for a few nights, hotel and tickets. Do any off use gents have experience of travelling to a Barca game and if so how did you go about it?
    Even if you went to watch dotmund or whomeever and no off a good website that gives you good deals, any help if appreciated. We would be flying out of Belfast (or Dublin) and Glasgow.

    Thanks for any replies :50:

    Instead of hotels, I would recommend just going for a hostel or an Air BnB type thing. Usually much cheaper :50:

    I flew out to barcalona from Gatwick with british airways. only £60 return.
    that was in December mind.
    but we flew down from Glasgow to Gatwick, stayed overnight then onto barcalona, still worked out cheaper than flying direct.

    Yeah I think Airbnb is the ticket myself.

    I was thinking of going for a package deal from a website though as they sort the tickets out for you, which I assume is the tricky bit if your trying to get them 2 months in advance. Have any of use any experience through those types of sites/facebook pages?

    Stay in Sitges, it's a great resort and only half an hour on the train to Barcelona.

    My mum booked a package for us for Christmas the other year with the game tickets and they assured her they were good seats...we were 1 row from the very top.
