Hotel Deals In All Counties in Ireland Between Christmas & New Year

Hotel breakfast shutterstock (1)

Fancy an overnight escape after Christmas? I have last minute hotel deals, across all counties in Ireland between Christmas and New Year.

It is great to be able to get back to dining in restaurants again, but why not go a step further and book into a hotel for the night instead? Enjoy breakfast in bed, and maybe even a swim or spa treatment? These last minute hotel deals are based on one night stays between Christmas and New Year.

If you want to stay longer, or if the dates I have chosen don’t suit, simply edit the dates to suit your requirements.  I have also updated these posts today if you are looking for a break over New Year:
