Cottages are large enough for creature comforts but small enough for intimacy. Cottages are located in villages, woods or near the coastline. It's much more romantic to rent a cottage for your Irish holiday than a hotel room because you have more privacy.
But those romantic cottages are expensive to maintain, which is why owners of Irish cottages often rent them out for days, weeks or months at a time. Although you can ask a travel agent or real estate agent for a rental cottage, it's easiest to do it online. There are many websites that connect homeowners and holidaymakers. You can even contact Ireland's visitor's bureau for available cottages in the area of Ireland you wish to visit.
One thing that's for sure is a holiday in Ireland is one that you'll enjoy so much you'll want to do it again and again and again!
