Cottages and Holiday Homes in Ireland

Make yourself at home

Discover Ireland your own way, staying with family and friends in Ireland's self-catered cottages and holiday homes.

For those with families and larger groups, it can sometimes be easier to establish a base in the form of a self-catered cottage or holiday home and discover Ireland at your own pace. This is especially true for those planning a family vacation or groups travelling in Ireland with pets.

As well as offering maximum flexibility, holiday homes are a great way of keeping down the cost of your Irish vacation or tour. They also provide a safe and private space where the kids can let off steam playing in the garden or games room, and where adults can continue to relax and socialise after the youngsters have gone to bed.

Additional Information

Holiday Home Prices

Prices for holiday cottages in Ireland vary greatly according to the size, location, facilities and market level of the accommodation, as well as the time of year. As a very rough guide, visitors should expect to pay €90-€350 per night, though prices will often be listed for a seven-night fixed stay.

Choosing your Irish Holiday Cottage

It is always advisable to speak to your holiday property owner before booking. They will be able to offer information about access to local attractions, as well as the suitability of the accommodation for your group. Make a list of what you might expect from your cottage before you get in touch.

Pet-Friendly Accommodation in Ireland

One of the single biggest selling points of self-catered accommodation is that you can often bring small family pets with you - they're part of the family after all! However, you shouldn't take it for granted that animals will be allowed in all cases. To save confusion and/or embarassment on arrival, speak to your property owner or agent before making a booking to make sure that your four-legged friends are welcome. An additional deposit may be payable for groups bringing pets.
