Holiday cottages in Ireland

We all enjoy exploring different holiday destinations and for people living in the UK, Ireland is a short flight away and offers its own unique scenery and experience.

The joy of a holiday in Ireland lies in the countryside and Irish people; both are pleasant and a pleasure to encounter.  The Irish went on a massive building spree around the turn of the century which has left the country with an astonishing number of excess houses, of which many have found a new use as holiday homes.

The bungalows, cottages and houses are fitted out to Irish high quality specifications so that anyone booking accommodation can look forward to a truly comfortable break.

The Irish are genuinely nice people who often like to talk, even to complete strangers. This creates a friendly, welcoming environment for tourists to Ireland. It is often described as the ‘Emerald isle’ because the landscapes are lush and green. The reason for that is frequent watering by Mother Nature, so if you do book a holiday in Ireland, take a raincoat or umbrella. The Irish joke about the country, saying that Dublin would be great if they put a roof on it.  We cannot enjoy the prolific flowers and trees unless we tolerate the rain.

The outdoor attractions of Ireland are very well know: golf, horse riding, fishing and sailing. All of these can be enjoyed once your Irish holiday cottage and flights are booked.  The myriad pleasures of Ireland go far beyond the outdoor activities and pubs.  There are various guided tours, on foot or by a selection of vehicles. You could try hot air ballooning over Ireland, Segway through woodlands, or diving off the south coast in Kerry or Cork.

A cottage holiday in Ireland can be great fun and by self-catering, you create the kind of holiday that you want. This could entail lazy days on beaches and evenings in pubs, or madly chasing after whales and dolphins by boat. Book an Irish holiday home and begin an adventure across the Irish Sea.
