Cottages in Ireland

Pleasant cottages set in the enchanting green countryside

Looking for a place surrounded by a serene environment and remote landscapes? Ireland is the ideal holiday destination to go to! The island has for you stunning cottages set in the tranquil countryside where you will only be accompanied by the sound of streams, the footsteps of sheep walking on the grass and hundreds of isolated landscapes made up of cliffs, trails and unspoilt coastlines where you will experience unique adventures that you only thought possible in your wildest dreams.

Cosy renovated cottages with hot tubs

Create magical moments during your holiday! Ireland's beautiful cottages offer you renovated spaces where you can create unforgettable memories with your family or partner. A fully equipped modern kitchen will allow you to prepare the best dinner ever while the children are playing in the garden or on the terrace.

The cottages have everything to make your stay as enjoyable as possible.

Travellers and activities

Ireland for hiking lovers

Although Ireland is small, it offers all kinds of terrain for hikers: beaches, valleys, mountains and more! Dingle Peninsula is a haven for those who enjoy mountain scenery and coastal walks. If you are a beginner, the trail to Eask Tower provides a peaceful walk and a perfect place to spend some time alone with stunning views of the harbour and peninsula. In order to reach it you'll have to climb 182m above sea level following a 2.1 kilometre trail through beautiful wildflowers and somewhat boggy paths. Many hikers consider it an easy hike that is perfect for beginners and undoubtedly offers the best views of Dingle and Therese. Another option that requires little effort is the monastic site of Glendalough in the Wicklow Mountains. It's a trail that winds through a pine forest and past a lake to a ruined mining village. But If you want something more challenging, the Hare's Gap pass in the Mournes Mountains in the north of Ireland has unpaved trails and open slopes that will require good fitness and sturdy boots to cross the 440-metre trail.

Ireland for couples

For a romantic getaway with a touch of adventure, Ireland has the best places away from the crowds to explore with your partner. Cycling; the Wild Atlantic Way is a great place to start. You'll both discover hidden beaches and epic coastal landscapes where you might even get to see the Northern Lights. However, one of the most beautiful parts of the Wild Atlantic Route that you should definitely cycle is the Slea Head Loop. After cycling, stop off at the spectacular dining destination of Hazel Mountain Chocolate Save, one of Ireland's top 10 foodie attractions. The place offers a comfortable atmosphere where you can enjoy chocolates made from local ingredients. Or if you prefer a leisurely stroll, the town of Wicklow offers spectacular woodland walks with waterfalls and picnics in front of freshwater lakes against a fairytale backdrop.

Ireland is known as the Emerald Isle for its lush green countryside and has the world's longest coastal route, the Wild Atlantic Way
