Do you want to go to the seaside?

I'm not tryna say that everybody wants to go.

I fell in love at the seaside. 

1. Gatsby-style mansion — Howth, Dublin 

As seen above, this house tucked away on Howth Hill is a stunner with panoramic views of Dublin Bay. 

The house sleeps eight people and at €600 per night it works out at €75 each — if you've a special occasion coming up, keep this one in mind to experience living how the other half do. 

However be warned that this is "not a suitable location for a hen or stag party" — fair.

2. Seaside chalet — Barna, Galway 

This chalet is accessed via the host's main house and is hidden away in a green garden which also has a large polytunnel.

The self-contained chalet can accommodate two people comfortably and you'll be all set for exploring the small, seaside town of Barna with all of its restaurants and bars. 

Prices start at €49 for one guest.

You'll never wanna leave.

From €386 for six guests you'll have great views, lots of places to stroll, with Sandymount and Ballsbridge only a stone's throw away. But heads up — there's a 7 nights minimum stay rule.

6. Helen's Hideaway — Clifden, Galway 

Lovely two bed, two bath home on Clifden Harbour.

"Helen's Hideaway is very secluded and the everchanging harbour landscape (it's tidal) shall soothe your mind."
