Top 7 Staycation Destinations For 2016
There’s nothing like a weekend away to relieve the stress of work and other pressures from a long week.
We’ve picked some of our favourite spots in Ireland that you should pay a trip to in 2016.
There’s nothing like the heart of Kerry for a trip away for the weekend. Killarney offers vibrant night life, great food and brilliant pubs. On top of all that, you should really check out the glamping that’s on offer down there for a weekend away with a twist.
We love Cork from its bustling city centre, excellent pubs and welcoming people. Take a trip to Cobh for breathtaking scenery, and stop off in Fota Island for a wonderful experience for all ages. Don't forget to kiss the Blarney Stone!
The awe-inspiring scenery of the Burren in Co. Clare never fails to inspire us. With so much to see and do and with brilliant towns nearby, including Doolin and also the home to the match-making festival, Lisdoonvarna, it’s a great escape for you and all the girls.
Not only the home to fantastic shopping, Belfast has something for everyone. Take a trip to the Titanic museum and stroll through the different quarters that have something special around each corner.
The home to Westlife and WB Yeats for much of his early years, Sligo boasts stunning beaches, brilliant restaurants and a lot of culture. Take a trip out to Rosses Point, enjoy some surfing and let your hair down with some live music in one of the pubs.
One of the most popular staycation destinations, it’s not hard to see why thousands of Irish people head to Westport for a break. If you fancy getting active, Westport is also home to a wide range of action-packed activities.
Charming Co. Kerry village Sneem will win your heart with its traditional beauty. Another top spot in the area is Dingle, and don’t forget to take in the Ring of Kerry at some stage too (yes, you might need more than one trip down there!)
