From Kilkenny to Killarney, check out these festive family hotel deals in Ireland with prices from €325!
I love a break away between Christmas and New Year! Its the perfect way to finish off the festive season, and a good excuse to take advantage of left over annual leave days. Stephens Day is a chill day though, right? With this in mind, I have chosen these family hotel deals in Ireland departing on the 27th of December. However if you wish to depart earlier or later, or change the duration of your stay, simply edit the search dates to suit your requirements.
Hopefully you will get lots of crisp clear days, but if not, don’t worry, because all of my family hotel deals in Ireland are based in family friendly hotels with swimming pools!
However, it is important to point out that some facilities may have restrictions. I always recommend booking a room with free cancellation incase there are any changes to facilities, or you need to cancel your booking due to personal reasons. Most of these festive hotel deals are priced with free cancellation and include my affiliate links – where I receive a small commission if a booking is made, but at no additional cost to you.
