Irish couples spend just £134 compared with the Spanish figure of £218. The French (£208), Italians (£176) and Germans (£153) also outspend the Irish, the survey revealed.
Here at Belfast Times, we aren’t even interested in competing with other European countries on money, because we believe that the day can be just as special at a much more reasonable price.
So we’ve decided to show our love with an amazing value champagne afternoon tea at the Fitzwilliam Hotel in Belfast. At only £35 per couple we think that the Belfast Hotel’s Champagne afternoon tea is the perfect way for a Valentines treat without upsetting the bank manager!
If you did feel the need to splash out a bit more they are offering romantic overnight stays from only £99 per person sharing.
Paddy Wallace and his wife Tina have already been treated to Valentines treat day at the Fitz, but we reckon it’ll be even more romantic on the day.
