Our top 5 Self Catering Getaways

On this weeks breakaway weekly list we are focusing on self catering breaks in Ireland. An ideal option for a family, group of friends or just a romantic night away with the two of you.

While doing the research for this weeks blog I was shocked at some of the prices being charged for just one week! I found a Castle in the West of Ireland for €49,000 per week!!!! Even if I won the lotto I would find it hard to justify spending that much money for a week!

Never fear- I found 5 amazing escapes in Ireland that are all under €100 per night. My search this week was from the 14th of June to the 21st of June. Prices quoted were of the 19.02.2020

  1. Holiday Home in Derrybeg, Co Donegal

My first find was this beautiful cottage in west Donegal. Right along the Wild Atlantic way. If you haven’t visited this part of Donegal, you have to. Remote, breathtaking beaches, history and lots to do for adults and kids alike. Derrybeg is only 25 minutes from Glenveagh Castle, close to Kayaking and watersports, pet farms and lots more.

This house has 4 bedrooms (all ensuite) and sleeps 10 people! Its only €450 per week!! Electric and heating oil included, free wifi, high chair and cots provided and all bed linen and towels. However…… this beautiful house is fully booked until September. I highly recommend you think about booking it for 2022 or for September this year! Keep an eye on their facebook page for cancellations.

2. Ardgroom Village Holiday Homes, West Cork

The beautiful Beara Penninsula in West Cork has to be visited once in this lifetime. This is where you will really get away from it all, while still enjoying Ireland in all its scenic glory. Take Irelands only Cable car over to Dursey Island, explore the Healy pass or take a dip in Droumard Cove.

For a three bedroom house, with all mod cons included its €599 per week.

3. Arrowview Farmhouse Sligo

A beautiful farmhouse overlooking lough Arrow in Sligo. 30 minutes to Sligo town and only 30 minutes to Drumshambo and Lough Allen. This is the perfect getaway for family, friends or couples.

This three bedroom farmhouse is only €475 for the week with all the usual’s provided.

4. Gaulstown House, Dunshaughlin, Co Meath

Who doesn’t want a week away from normal life to live on a working farm! Oh and its only a ten minute drive to Tayto Park!! Apart from keeping the kids happy there is so much to do in the Boyne Valley. Visit the Hill of Tara, Newgrange Monument, Slane Castle, Trim Castle and so much more. 2021 will be the ideal year to visit as these popular destinations will not be overrun with international tourists.

This two bedroom cottage is €610 for the week and includes all mod cons.

5. 2 Bedroom house in Belmullet, Co Mayo

This house looks like its newly renovated or newly built! It promised ocean views and all mod cons. Situated a short drive from Belmullet itself and close to beaches.

This two bedroom house is only €637 for the full week.

These were just our top 5 picks for self catering this summer. There are lots of deals out there but remember- your holiday is what you make it.
