The booking via Sykes was very 'user-friendly', done very easily by helpful and friendly staff, and follow up emails quick and efficient.

Some people travel as far as the Caribbean to find a beach to call their own. But it's really not necessary. Indeed, Ireland has them by the dozen! And what better place to stay than one of our handpicked beach cottages!
Some nestle so close to the sea that you'll wake up with nature to the sounds of waves caressing the shore. For stunning sunrises stay on the beautiful east coast or go west for sensational sunsets and surf - Ireland is a fantastic place to learn how to ride huge Atlantic rollers and there are dozens of mindboggling, empty beaches to choose from. Other popular water sports include sailing, diving, windsurfing and fishing. Or be a spectator and look out for the Round Ireland Yacht Race, the Dingle Regatta and lots more.
Back on land the fun continues…Perfect your swing on velvety green fairways that fringe the shoreline. Walk meandering coastal paths and beachside trails. Enjoy romps on sweeping sands with 'Scamp' and the kids. Have fun sculpting sand into castles and other iconic monuments. Watch whales and dolphins playing in the bays. Or simply pack your sun lotion, shades and towel for lazy days soaking up the rays.
Sampling the ocean's natural larder is a mouth-watering experience - try oysters with Guinness, seafood chowder, not forgetting traditional fish and chips. Just another good reason to book a beach holiday rental in Ireland and leave the Caribbean for another year!
