No matter what type of holiday you're looking for, be it adventure or even a pampering at a Spa Hotel, Ireland has you covered. If the Emerald Isle is on your holiday radar for 2011, we're here to share our favourite destinations for cheap weekend breaks in Ireland.
It would be remiss of us not to start off with the centre of commerce and culture in Ireland, the capital city Dublin. There's an unbelievable variety of activites for visitors in Dublin. You can start with a trip to the Guinness Brewery, take in the majestic St. Stephen's Green, do some shopping on Grafton Street or else check out the nightlife in Temple Bar. Finding a cheap room in Dublin is a doddle, with the Jury's Group currently advertising rooms for €59 per person at www.jurysinns.com/DublinHotels.
If you're looking for something with more rural charms than Dublin, we suggest checking out the beauty of Connemara with a trip to Galway. Go Ireland has some fantastic deals on Galway hotels right now at www.goireland.com. If you head to Ireland's west then you simply must explore Connemara and the Gaeltacht region, with Carraroe a particular favourite of ours. It's like stepping back in time fifty years, with gorgeous rural scenery and vistas reminiscent of the popular movie, The Field.
Our final weekend break destination suggestion is Belfast, and in particular the Giants Causeway. This area of unspoilt rural beauty has to be seen to be believed, and as you're probably already aware, if you're coming from the UK, you won't have to bother with changing your currency, so it's a handy destination!
