It has been the toughest of times but now we are seeing some freedom return.
Summer holidays are on the horizon.
But is there anywhere left to book for a get away in Ireland?
Travel Editor with the Irish Independent Pol O’Conghaile talks to Alison Curtis on Weekend Breakfast about some of the fantastic solutions to your summer and Top Tips for Irish hotels, B&Bs, self-catering and camping.
He covers Looking Inland, City Stays, Short Break Options, plus Sneaky Five Star Stays:
I wrote about this in today's Weekend Mag. Lack of overseas visitors means there is lots more availability (and some good value) in five-stars... you get the comforts, breakfast, leisure centre & flexible cancellation policies into the bargain.
Pol also suggests:
Best value & availability is midweek, June and late August / September (due to school hols closing, but some put this down to possibility of overseas returning too) Remember to pre-book stuff!!! breakfasts, pools, visitor attractions, activities
Plus, a whole list of other options available after people responded to Pol on Twitter:
