Brought to you by Irish Ferries
IRISH FERRIES Holidays has a host of hand-picked holiday cottages and hotels that can be packaged up with return self-drive ferry crossings for a great-value inclusive holiday – and if booked by 26 March there’s a saving of 10% on normal prices!
Ireland is easy to reach by ferry: a three to four hour crossing is the perfect length of time to relax in one of the many onboard restaurants or cafes, watch a film in the onboard cinema, or stretch your legs and take in the sea air out on deck.
Taking your own car to Ireland makes so much sense: no airport hassles or parking costs, no baggage charges, no long delays.
Sail with Irish Ferries from Holyhead in North Wales straight into Dublin for easy access to the whole of Ireland. Alternatively, the sunny south coast is easily reached by sailing into Rosslare from Pembroke.
What is Ireland’s Wild Atlantic Way?
Beautiful, remote, wild and welcoming: Ireland’s west coast is rightly famous for its scenery. The Wild Atlantic Way connects the west coast’s most amazing sights to create the world’s longest defined coastal drive – all 2,500 kilometres of it!
The official route runs from Donegal to County Cork, and each section offers its own unique sights and experiences. Why not base yourself in a holiday cottage for a week or two, and take things nice and easy?
You might explore Donegal and the wild beauty of the Connemara National Park. Why not sample Galway City’s lively culture, or take a boat trip to the unspoiled Aran Islands? In County Kerry you can swim with dolphins or take a boat trip out to the island of Skellig Michael – now even more famous thanks to its big-screen exposure in Star Wars: The Last Jedi.
Holiday cottages in Ireland
For freedom and flexibility a holiday cottage is a great choice for all the family – you can even bring your pet. Take a walk on fabulous, almost empty beaches. Tuck into a seafood platter, or find your dancing feet in a harbour-side pub.
When the sun shines there’s nowhere better for outdoor activities: canoeing, sailing, horse-riding and more. And if the weather is ‘soft’ Ireland has plenty of undercover attractions from museums and historical castles to a wealth of towns and villages to explore.
Great value when you book ferry and cottage together
Irish Ferries Holidays has hand-picked accommodation that won’t break the bank, with special prices when you book a self-drive package that includes ferry crossings. There’s a wide choice of cottages around the island of Ireland, including beautifully-designed holiday villages.
Plus - book a 2018 holiday by 26 March and a week’s self-catering for a family of two adults and up to four children can cost as little as £504 – and that includes return ferry crossings for the whole family and the car!
Selected cottages even offer a second week free – outside of peak season – and some welcome dogs, saving on kennel fees and heartbreak. Your dog will need a Pet Passport, but there’s no charge for taking it on the ferry, either in the familiar surroundings of your own car or in an on-board kennel.
