Known for its romantic connotations, Ireland is a popular choice for short breaks and weekends away. Couples looking to visit can book a holiday cottage around Ireland that provides comfortable lodgings as well as close proximity to areas of interest. You may want to be near a big town or city, which cottages in Cork or Dublin are perfect for. Alternatively, head out to the more isolated parts of the country to get a dose of peace and tranquillity and a relaxing break from the stresses of everyday life - Dun Laoghaire is a beautiful choice, offering little cafes and winding streets just a few hundred metres from the seafront.
Outdoor enthusiasts often visit Ireland because there are plenty of opportunities for fishing, walking and climbing, and many holiday cottages in Ireland can be found alongside streams, rivers and hills. Large groups are also well catered for with a number of larger estates and mansions available complete with the kind of luxurious modern conveniences you expect with larger properties, such as tennis courts and swimming pools. These properties often also boast extensive grounds with patios and barbecues, making them perfect for evening entertaining.
Holiday cottages in Ireland are an ideal choice if you’re coming from the rest of the UK or from abroad; they are much more personable than standard hotels, offering a home-away-from-home experience so you get the best of both worlds. And don’t forget that you book directly with the cottage owners, so you can discuss your requirements directly to make sure your stay will be as comfortable and individualised as possible. Many properties are also pet-friendly, so there’s no reason to leave your dog at home, saving on kennel costs and ensuring they get to enjoy the holiday as much as you do.
