It can be a disappointment to learn that some of Ireland's nicest hotels can't be reached except by car.
For those of us who can't drive, we know there's no way to get there. For others who are travelling here, it means they would have to rent a car which they may not be willing or able to do.
But luckily not all the great getaways have to be so far from public transport.
With that in mind, we've put together a list of destination hotels no more than 20 minutes walk from trains stations (though it may take slightly longer if you're dragging a heavy suitcase behind you).
