An Introduction to Ireland

With one of the warmest welcomes around and so many incredible things to see and do, it’s difficult to want to end a cottage holiday in Ireland.

The Emerald isle is true to its names, with miles of rolling greenery to explore: peaceful bogland teeming with wildlife, coastal paths and sea-weathered cliffs, towering mountain peaks, leafy glens, and thousands upon thousands of lakes – or loughs, as they’re known locally. It is a place steeped in ancient rites and mystery, and the landscape holds the secrets to a dizzying amount of prehistoric stone circles and burial

Admire the beautiful architecture as you wander around Dublin, renowned as a lively, scholarly hub. Ireland is positively brimming with literary greatness, boasting the most Nobel Prize winners for literature than anywhere else in the world. The Irish are also well known for their hospitality, so why not find out the craic over a pint of Guinness with the locals? Take in a traditional music performance, complete with lithe-legged Irish dancers moving to the frenzied beat of the bodhràn drum.

Closer than you think yet a whole world away, we offer a superb range of holiday cottages in Ireland. Take your pick from four wonderful counties in the sunny south east – Wicklow, Waterford, Wexford or Tipperary; head south west and discover County Cork and Kerry; or explore Limerick, Clare and Galway in the west. Wherever you choose, expect an Irish holiday to remember. And getting to Ireland couldn't be easier. Fly into an airport close to your Irish holiday home and let us book you a rental car, or take advantage of our ferry-inclusive packages and start the adventure before you’ve even arrived. We're here to help, whichever way suits.

From traditional, picturesque cottages to trendy, contemporary residences, our range of self catering Irish holiday cottages has something for everyone. Book one of our large cottages for an exciting family break away, and make sure the whole clan stays together with our collection of pet friendly cottages. Treat your other half to a romantic stay in one of our luxury cottages or escape to a cosy, beach retreat for two. Whatever you’re looking for, we have the perfect Irish holiday cottage available to rent just for you.
