Christmas gift box from Select Hotels of Ireland (1)

An Irish hotel voucher is a super Christmas gift, but go one step further and give a Christmas gift box from Select Hotels of Ireland, which includes a hotel stay as well as three handmade Irish gifts.

 

There has never been a better time to support and shop local. I am delighted to see so many Irish companies offering unique Christmas gift ideas, and this Christmas gift box from Select Hotels of Ireland is no exception. As well as receiving an overnight stay in any of their 29 hotels across Ireland, you will also receive three Irish handmade products, all beautifully presented in a gift box, with free postage to anywhere in Ireland.

What I love about this Select Hotels of Ireland Christmas box, as well as their staycation vouchers, is that you are actually giving the gift of an overnight stay with breakfast included, and not a monetary amount of money towards a hotel stay. This overnight stay is valid in any of their 29 hotels, on any night, at any time of year, even bank holidays or peak summer dates – subject to availability of course. 

 

This Christmas gift box also includes three handmade Irish  gifts:

 

  • A box of handmade chocolates from Chez Emily:

Handmade artisan Belgian luxury chocolates from Chez Emily, made in Co. Meath using the best local Irish ingredients.

About Select Hotels of Ireland:

Some of you may be familiar with my stay in Breaffy House Hotel in Mayo this summer, a member of Select Hotels of Ireland. However, for those who are not familiar with Select Hotels of Ireland – here are some of things that I think you should know:  

    • Select Hotels of Ireland is a group of 29 independently owned hotels, across various counties in Ireland, that are bookable on one great website.
    • All hotels are renowned for their great service, quality food and high standards of accommodation – you can expect a warm Irish welcome and a full Irish breakfast too!
    • There are many household names in the group, like the Celtic Ross Hotel, the Clifden Station House and Killarney Riverside Hotel, but also some hidden gems that you may not be aware of.
