There’s one sure way to beat the New Year blues and that is to book a holiday. Whilst some of us still yearn for the sun, sea and sand of Spain and Portugal an increasing number of us are looking closer to home for their annual holiday. Ireland could be your perfect 2011 holiday destination. Ireland offers visitors a unique culture, wonderful scenery and a very friendly welcome. There are some fantastic places to stay and we recommend that to really experience Ireland you take an Irish Holiday Cottage. In Ireland self catering cottages are very often in beautiful locations, away from large towns and cities, and many have that distinctive character that is ‘Ireland’.
The most popular areas to stay in Ireland are the southern and western counties of Kerry, Cork and Galway. Many visitors go there for the stunning countryside, beautiful walks and dramatic coastline. But there is so much more to Ireland and its well worth exploring the Northern and Eastern counties of Donegal, Antrim, Wexford and Waterford. And don’t forget the cities and towns – Belfast, Dublin, Cork and Killarney.
Whether you choose a Donegal cottage or a farmhouse in Kerry, your holiday cottage in Ireland will become your home from home and also your holiday base. You’ll have all the modern conveniences and home comforts that a hotel room can’t give you, and you’ll have the freedom to do what you want, when you want. Self catering cottages are a great way to holiday in Ireland. Go as a family or group and you can get some great deals, with accommodation costing as little as £5 per person per night. Ireland offers a fantastic range of properties from secluded romantic getaways for couples to large well appointed houses for family holidays or group get-togethers.
Traveling around the country, you can see a lot of interesting ideas for the interior design and landscape design.
Getting to Ireland is easy, there are international airports at Belfast and Dublin and flight times from the UK and Europe are short. Many people choose to travel with the convenience of their own car and take the ferry from one of many ports. With daily sailings most self catering holiday cottage companies will be able to arrange your ferry travel along with your accommodation booking and work with established companies such as Stena Line, P&O and DFDS Norfolk Line.
Why not take a few minutes to look at what Ireland has to offer and more about the lovely holiday cottages that will be your home from home.
