Ireland: An Emerald Isle with a great big heart
Table of contents
Ireland is a beautiful, welcoming place that has a rich and sometimes troubled history. The people are passionate but warmly welcoming and the landscape is both wild and beautiful in places. There are many unique features that can only be see here: the Giant's Causeway springs to mind, but there are many more. Ireland is known for its wonderful whiskies, for brewing drinks like Guinness and craft beers, and also for its excellent way with livestock, especially race-horses. People will have many reasons for visiting Ireland: from getting in touch with one's Irish roots to exploring the country's rich literary traditions to drinking one's way from pub to pub, making friends and seeing the green rolling hills and soft kindly rivers and streams.
As if visiting Ireland was not adventure enough, this gorgeous Galway hotel has an onsite adventure centre alongside award-winning food and a relaxing spa. The hotel's commitment to providing a wonderful service has seen them win a Certificate of Excellence, and it is not hard to see why. Set in 300 acres of valley countryside, the hotel lies on the Wild Atlantic Way, a superb swathe of the country along which you can cycle, ramble or drive, enjoying world-beating views. But you do not have to be energetic to have a good time, the hotel offers a wide range of activities for the whole family – and if you are feeling energetic you can go kayaking! With two modern restaurants, a café and a relaxing terrace you are sure to feel at home here.

No matter if you are a student travelling Ireland as cheaply as possible, or a businessman looking to consolidate and grow your business; a family looking for quality bonding time over fun and activities or treating yourself to five-star finery as you explore the country and find yourself, there is a hotel room that is right for you!
Our hotels run the full gamut from five-star immaculate elegance to shabby-chic three-star comfort. From the compact and practical to the frankly opulent and lush – there is a hotel room, many of them, waiting for you in Ireland.
Ireland enjoys a lot of rain and it can come down unexpectedly, so you should travel with than contingency in mind. A parka or kagoule that can fold up small is a boon to any traveller, plus you could keep a small, fold-up umbrella in your day-bag. Sturdy, waterproof shoes or boots are a must if you are going to be travelling around, and a spare change of clothes will not go amiss if you have the space in your suitcase. Otherwise, bring a reasonable quality camera so you can capture some images of the beauties of Ireland – a high-quality mobile phone will work too!
Ireland is, unsurprisingly, an island, and as such is most usually accessed by air or sea: ferries ply a regular route both from the UK and from mainland Europe, while flights come into the country frequently, landing at Dublin, Cork, Kerry and Shannon. Booking your hotel in advance is recommended as there is a year round parade of events, celebrations and even sports matches that will ensure the closest or cheapest hotels have no rooms.
Many people travel by ferry, especially from the UK where a ferry from Liverpool can get you comfortably into the heart of Ireland in just a few hours. There are two ferry routes, and between them, twenty-five sailings to Ireland and back will ensure you get there without too much delay. You can combine your ferry ride with a train journey: known as 'sail rail', to get you to your destination for a good price.
