Thinking about taking a self-catering holiday in Ireland but are undecided about where or what it is you want exactly?
You will find self-catering accommodation dotted all over Ireland in a multitude of settings. What do you like the idea of?
Ireland has a number of natural assets that tend to dictate the type of holiday that can be enjoyed there. The coastal parts of Ireland are wonderful for families seeking a beach holiday, for people who like to walk coastal paths, birdwatchers exploring the cliffs, for sea fishing holidays, sailing, windsurfing, surfing, for artists and photographers drawing inspiration from the sea.
Find a charming cottage in the country that promises relaxation, bird song, wildlife spotting, gentle strolls down country lanes, friendly evenings at the local pub. It can be good to find a self-catering base in a rural spot or in a small village and know that your days can be as calm or as busy as you want to make them. Find somewhere that has the outdoor activities that you enjoy close by, perhaps stables for pony trekking, a golf course, woodland walks, mountain biking. You always have the option of going further afield is you wish to sightsee as long as you have your own transport.
National parks are ideal for walking holidays in Ireland. There are several national parks, all of which are close to the coast. It is possible to rent an apartment or cottage either close to or within the national park. This makes daily treks convenient from the holiday home or within a very short drive.
National park holidays are popular with walking groups so that there are usually a good number of eateries, pubs and other facilities within the area for people renting accommodation.
Girls out celebrating a during a hen weekend want to be in towns and cities to find enough clubs and pubs to party. There is plenty of accommodation to rent in every town and city. Renting a self-catering house can be fun for a group of girls together, especially if there is a hot tub or similar niceties for a bit of pampering.
Both girls and boys may prefer the excitement of a holiday in Ireland with watersports. A weekend away learning to windsurf, canoe or jet-ski can be exhilerating and much more fun than the traditional alcohol quest. Find holiday homes in coastal Ireland for an exciting time near the sea.
