I have teamed up with Groupon who offer a wide variety of hotel deals in Ireland and abroad, with up to 60% off the cost, as well as lots of extras free of charge. Some deals offer a bottle of prosecco in your room, others a free evening meal, there are also late check-outs available, while two of these hotel deals in Ireland include a round of golf! I have hand-picked these hotels from their website and all are highly recommended on TripAdvisor.

Most deals are valid until the end of the year, so there are lots of dates to choose from. I’ve got city hotels, country houses, castles and spa resorts from various counties in Ireland –  I have no doubt that one of these hotel deals in Ireland will suit you 😊.
