There are many household names in the group, like Actons of Kinsale and Dingle Skellig Hotel, but also some hidden gems that you may not be aware of. I had the pleasure of staying in the Falls Hotel in Clare this summer, and Breaffy House Resort in Mayo last year – both are members of Select Hotels of Ireland.   

Select Hotels of Ireland are also offering a small selection of group tours for those who don’t fancy driving, or want meals and excursions included in their staycation. I have included these and lots more great value Autumn breaks below, although there are many more Autumn breaks on the Select Hotels of Ireland website.

If you have any trouble finding availability to suit you, simply call 1850 200 560 or 021 4391998 and one of the dedicated staff will be able to help you.

We were fortunate to be able to stay at The Falls Hotel this summer, and as you can see from the above image, I enjoyed their superb spa! The Falls Hotel is ideally situated to explore the Wild Atlantic Way, with the Cliffs of Moher and the lively town of Doolin less than 15 minutes away.

If you have been following me this summer, you will know I fell in love with Donegal when I was there in June. This deal staying in the Silver Tassie Hotel & Spa offers superb value, and is ideally located to explore Donegal’s gorgeous coastline and top attractions. However, if you just want to relax, the hotel’s Seascape Spa that specialises in Donegal seaweed baths, should do the trick!
