Gift Vouchers from Select Hotels of Ireland – The Ultimate Christmas Gift

Christmas gift box (1)

Give the gift of travel this Christmas. With a choice of 28 hotels to choose from, in superb locations throughout Ireland, gift vouchers from Select Hotels of Ireland are the ultimate gift this Christmas. 

Christmas gift vouchers from Select Hotels of Ireland are back! I am delighted once again to work with Select Hotels of Ireland to showcase their broad range of Christmas gift vouchers available this year. They were a huge success last year, particularly the Christmas gift boxes which include a hotel stay and three handmade Irish gifts.

I was delighted to stay in two of Select Hotels of Ireland hotels this year, Breaffy House Resort in Mayo, and The Falls Hotel in Clare. Select Hotels are all independently owned and are renowned for their great service and quality food. You can expect a warm Irish welcome and a full Irish breakfast too – which I duly received during both my visits!

There is something special about giving the gift of travel at Christmas time – after all, you are giving the gift of an experience. I think we all enjoyed discovering of our home country over the last 18 months, but we know there is lots more to explore. I’m sure anyone would love to receive a gift of a hotel stay under the tree this Christmas – myself included.

However, it is not always easy knowing which hotel to choose. That’s what I love about Select Hotels of Ireland – when you buy one of their gift vouchers, you can choose to stay in ANY of their 28 hotels in Ireland. You also have the choice of giving a voucher for a fixed monetary amount, or my personal favourite, a gift of an overnight stay instead.
 

 

 
Its also important to point out that when you purchase a voucher for an overnight stay in any of the Select Hotels of Ireland 28 hotels, it is valid on Saturday night stays, bank holidays, and during peak holiday time in July or August.

Explore Ireland with staycation vouchers with Select Hotels of Ireland

As well as hotel stays, Select Hotels of Ireland are supporting small Irish businesses by including hand made gifts with their gift boxes this Christmas. This proved a huge success last year, with all Christmas gift boxes selling out in record time.

There are a variety of Select Hotels of Ireland gift vouchers and boxes to choose from, including special gifts for Him and Her. The only question is which one will you choose?
 

 

 

One-night Select Hotels of Ireland Gift Voucher: €170

Not only were the prices cheaper than what I was paying in Smyths, but I got over 1000 Avios when I spent €100 online! I also picked up some books from Eason, they are giving 7 Avios for every €1 spent and to get 4 Avios for every euro spent at Apple – well it doesn’t get much better than that!  The AerClub eStore offers are not limited to Irish online stores, you can also collect bonus Avios with popular fashion stores like Pretty Little Thing and Topshop and beauty store Lookfantastic.

Prague Weekend Break, Flights & 3 Nights, 4* Hotel, 13th May €297!

prague-162550_1280 (1)

It is hard not to fall in love with Prague. Not only is it visually stunning but with extraordinary cultural sights and great night life, it is not surprising that it is one of Ireland’s top city break destinations.

Often compared to Paris in terms of beauty, Prague has architectural masterpieces untouched by war or natural disasters.  This is a rarity these days and walking around the city you cant help but admire your surroundings. Wenceslas Square is the main gathering point, full of designer shops, cafes and bars, it’s always buzzing with a great atmosphere. The medieval Charles Bridge connects the old town to the impressive Castle and is filled with artists selling paintings and caricatures. I love the fact that Prague is so compact and easy to navigate. Unlike many large European cities you will get to tick the main tourist attractions off your list and by the end of your stay you will feel like you really know the city. There is plenty of bold to go with the beautiful – it has some of the best nightlife you are likely to find in any European city. And lets not forget the beer – some would say Prague has the best beer in the world, well it’s worth investigating anyway!

Sarah Slattery, The Travel Expert talks about Prague

I found a great deal staying in the superb The Lindner Hotel Prague Castle. This Hotel receives excellent reviews on tripadvisor and was awarded a certificate of excellence. It is situated close to Prague Castle and with easy access to all of Prague’s other main attractions. Fly from Dublin to Prague on the 13th of May and spend three nights in this great city for only €297 per person.
