Whether on a date night or a night away with the girls, there’s nothing like booking into a nice hotel and leaving all the stresses and strains of daily life behind.

Luckily, we’re spoiled in Ireland with the range of stunning hotels that are available to us and a weekend away can be really affordable if you choose to travel during the off-peak season.

So, put your feet up, have a browse through these beautiful locations and start planning a mini-getaway – you deserve it!

Monart Hotel & Spa, Co. Wexford

There’s no denying that the jawdropping gorgeous Monart is top of our wishlist when it comes to a hotel staycation. The five-star location specialises in relaxing spa breaks, with everything from dry flotation to caviar facials on the menu. There are 68 bedrooms on the property and it’s an adult-only hotel so there’ll be no crying babies or busy toddlers in sight!

A one-night weekend B&B getaway this September with access to classes starts from €179 per person.

The Ice House, Co. Mayo

If you fancy heading west, you can’t beat the Ice House on the banks of the River Moy. The hotel’s design is quite eclectic, with the clean lines accented by old-school touches. The restaurant is a must for seafood lovers, while the spa uses the lush VOYA range of products (one of our faves!)

The Mount Juliet Hotel, Co Kilkenny

If you’re a Downton Abbey fan, we would thoroughly recommend taking a step back in time with a trip to the elegant Mount Juliet. The Manor House is a 250-year-old Georgian property, which is also home to the Michelin-starred Lady Helen restaurant. Ultimate indulgence!

A weekend overnight stay for two at Mount Juliet in September, including breakfast and a 55-minute spa treatment each, is priced from €439

The Castlemartyr Resort, Co. Cork

The People’s Republic can lay claim to one of our favourite hotels ever, the Castlemartyr. We probably don’t have to do a lot of explaining here because the below pictures says it all but suffice to say, it’s got uber-glam rooms and you can even take a carriage ride around the estate.

The Westbury Hotel, Dublin City

If you’re more of a city slicker than a lady of the manor, then The Westbury is the place for you. Located just off the shopping mecca that is Grafton Street, this five-star hotel has a real New York vibe and some of the nicest cocktails in Dublin.

A weekend overnight stay for two this September (including breakfast) is priced from €400.
