Encourage wanderlust this Christmas

There are plenty of reasons to choose a staycation right now. Not only will you be supporting local businesses and keeping your carbon footprint small by staying in the country, but as the global pandemic continues to develop - avoiding long-haul travel is something many of us might be making the decision to do.

But holidaying here in Ireland doesn’t have to mean sacrificing beautiful beaches or luxurious hotels. With a collection of unique independently owned hotels, castles, manor houses and city hotels to choose from, Original Irish Hotels are a group of 60 independent hotels - many of which are family-owned and operated, are spread across the 32 counties.

Enjoy award-winning locavore cuisine such as the ‘Taste the Island’ experience at Dunadry Hotel & Gardens in Co. Antrim. Invigorating outdoor experiences are on offer including unlimited access to miles of forest walks and hidden beaches at Parknasilla Resort and Spa. Or, for the more active of travellers amongst us, there's ‘Cycling the Southern Greenway’ with the Longcourt House Hotel in Limerick. Or if months in self-isolation have made you miss the city life, there's the ‘Bike with Brooks Hotel’ in Dublin city, complete with a picnic. No matter which hotel break you opt for, the magic of Original Irish Hotels is the warm welcome at every location that shows you you're not just another room number. 

But with such an extensive range of hotels on offer, it can be hard choosing just one. Cue the Original Irish Hotels gift card. Not just another gift voucher, the Original Irish Hotels gift card is a gift of wonderful memories and time spent with loved ones. Not to mention it also supports Ireland’s vital tourism sector and independent Irish hotels.

Presented in a premium quality gift box and gift bag or with the option to be downloaded directly, Original Irish Hotels gift card denominations start at €50 and are also available as specific one or two night hotel packages. To find out more or to order Original Irish Hotels gift vouchers please telephone 01 2958900 or visit originalirishhotels.com.

Their next vacation will be their best one yet (all thanks to you).


And as it just so happens, we're delighted to announce that the third prize in the 2020 FOOD&WINE advent calendar is a gift card for Original Irish Hotels worth €150. Redeemable against any of their wide collection of unique owner-run manor houses, castles, hotels and boutique hotels across Ireland.
