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.

  • A beautiful scented candle from Field Day Ireland

Staycation Vouchers – The Ultimate Gift from Select Hotels of Ireland

waterford greenway

Give the gift of a staycation! With a choice of 29 hotels to choose from, in superb locations throughout Ireland, staycation vouchers from Select Hotels of Ireland are the ultimate gift this Christmas. 

 

One of the positive things I have learned from this crazy year, is to appreciate my own country a little more. As much as I miss overseas travel, I discovered some amazing beaches that I didn’t know existed in Mayo, tried falconry and horse riding in Kilkenny, and rekindled my love for full Irish breakfasts!

I also enjoyed seeing so many beautiful images of Ireland across social media this summer, I think it made us all realise how much of our own country we have yet to explore.

With overseas travel still uncertain, many of us may choose to holiday in Ireland again next year. Can you think of a better gift to receive this Christmas than an Irish hotel voucher? What I love about the Select Hotels of Ireland staycation vouchers, is that you are actually giving the gift of a staycation, and not a monetary amount of money towards a staycation.

 

Instead of purchasing a €150 gift voucher, you can purchase an overnight stay with breakfast in any of the Select Hotels of Ireland 29 hotels. This is valid on Saturday night stays, over bank holidays, and during peak holiday time in July or August.

Remember how difficult it was to get availability along the Wild Atlantic Way this summer? Select Hotels of Ireland staycation vouchers can be used at any time during 2021. You can choose to buy four, six or eight night vouchers and stay in two, three or four different hotels, or you can choose to stay in the same hotel for a week over the peak summer period.

Select Hotels have also introduced a Christmas gift box which includes an overnight stay, as well as three Irish handmade products.

If you simply can’t decide which option to choose, you can give a cash gift voucher instead. Gift cheques are available in denominations of your choice, from €50 to €1000, and may be used as payment, or part payment, or for a stay, or meal, in any Select Hotel. You can choose an eVoucher for instant delivery, or postal voucher delivered in a beautifully presented gift folder along with a copy of the Select Hotels of Ireland hotel directory.

It is important to note that although package and staycation vouchers state that the validity is 12 months from date of issue, the amount you spend on the voucher will be valid for five years. So if, for example, you are unable to use a staycation voucher during 2021,  the full value of the voucher will be available to use against any Select Hotels of Ireland booking for five years.
