Top tips for finding the perfect Ireland hotel
While Ireland isn’t most people’s first thought of a beach resort, it is home to several beautiful beaches if you know where to look. For example, Inchydoney Island Beach in County Cork is consistently regarded as one of the best in Ireland, with smooth golden sands, clear water and good waves for surfing. The Clonakilty Hotel is just 1.9 miles from the remote beach. Keem Beach is a cove within a horseshoe valley, next to some of the highest sea cliffs in Ireland. The waters here offer good visibility for snorkelling and scuba diving.
If you are coming to Ireland to appreciate the famed natural beauty, travel to Killarney. You will find yourself surrounded by evergreen hills with valleys on all sides, when you stay at a hotel like the Killarney Oaks Hotel. The hotel is only a 4-min walk from Killarney National Park, which is home to herds of red deer, majestic waterfalls and lakes, as well as Ireland's highest mountain range, MacGillycuddy's Reeks. When you need a break from the hiking you can also visit one of Killarney's many centuries old churches or castles.
