Select Hotels of Ireland Launches New Website

DELUXE KING Edited

Tired of the large hotel chains with expensive room rates? Want a staycation filled with traditional Irish hospitality? From the Dingle Skellig Hotel to Actons of Kinsale, Select Hotels of Ireland is a group of 30 independent Irish hotels, bookable on one great website.
 

 

Select Hotels of Ireland are renowned for their great service, quality food and high standards of accommodation. You can also expect a warm Irish welcome and a full Irish breakfast. There are many different hotels to choose from, across various cities and counties in Ireland. Select Hotels of Ireland offer family breaks in self catering lodges, Christmas and New Year offers and group tours.

I have listed some of my favourite hotels from the Select Hotels of Ireland website below, but there are many more to choose from. If my personal picks don’t suit you, you can see all 30 hotels on Select Hotels of Ireland new website, or why not call the Central Reservations Office and let their expert staff find the perfect hotel to suit you.

Actons Hotel Kinsale, Cork

With a yacht-filled harbour, cobbled-stone streets and delightful dining options, it’s not surprising that colourful Kinsale is one of Ireland’s most popular port towns. It was also voted Ireland’s top foodie town last year.

Kinsale’s landmark hotel, Actons, is an excellent place to stay according to TripAdvisor, and I second that! I love Actons’ home from home atmosphere – in fact this embodies what Select Hotels of Ireland is all about. This boutique hotel offers some excellent dining options, as well as a health and leisure club with a gym, a 15-metre swimming pool, sauna and steam room.

Dingle Skellig Hotel, Kerry

The Dingle Peninsula is full of exciting places to explore. The Slay Head Drive is probably one of Irealnd’s best coastal drives, with Gallarus Oratory and Coumeenole Beach just some of the highlights. You must also take time to see Fungi, the resident dolphin, and catch some traditional music in one of the many pubs that line Main Street. 

The Dingle Skellig Hotel is superbly situated overlooking Dingle Bay and is an ideal choice to explore this beautiful peninsula. The hotel also has a leisure club, swimming pool, spa, and outdoor hot tub – so if you just want to relax, you can do that too! Rated excellent on TripAdvisor, this must be one of the best places to stay in Dingle.

Wyatt Hotel Westport, Mayo

Westport is a delightful town, so much so that you may not want to leave it! However, it is a shame not to explore Mayo’s beautiful coastline. Pay a visit to Achill Island and marvel at Keem Bay. If weather permits, why not cycle there on the Great Western Greenway bike trail?

I have chosen the boutique hotel Wyatt, which is superbly located in the heart of Westport. The Wyatt has a traditional Irish bar, an upmarket brasserie, an award-winning restaurant, and offers access to the 4-star Westport Leisure Park during your stay. It also happens to be Westport’s only Dog Friendly Hotel! Rated as excellent on TripAdvisor, a stay at the Wyatt is sure to please.

Clifden Station House Hotel, Galway

This unique hotel was once an old railway station. It has been beautifully restored and manages to combine the old brick and native oak with modern furnishings.
