Just because summer has been and gone, that doesn't mean that we should stop taking little trips away. Many hotels that are normally full of families become a haven for a grown-up getaway around this time of year.
Let's face it, life gets fairly mental in the months leading up to Christmas. For most of us, work gets busier, the prep for the festive season gets manic and life just gets a bit mad.
So, a cheeky little staycation might just be what the doctor ordered. And this stunning hotel in County Wexford is ideal for just that.
Situated in Gorey, Amber Springs offers pure luxury.
Arriving at the gorgeous four-star hotel, you'll be greeted with a warm welcome before enjoying a heavenly stay at the resort. It really is a haven for grown-up getaways, girls' trips, empty nesters, romantic breaks and just some 'me-time'.
