My TOP Hotels in Ireland & Northern Ireland

Hi everyone,

So I’m in LA writing this on my balcony in the sun. The weather is so gorgeous here today & it’s nice to be in the heat. I always try and make the most of my trips by getting a few blog posts done each trip so then when I’m home my time is solely with Lily. I think I’m finding that balance now but it’s definitely taking time. Any mums out there struggling being back at work, I totally feel you and I’m with you. It’s very hard. People asked me the other night in my Q&A, did I think about staying at home with Lily full time & reality is….I think about it every single day. Every day I just want to stay with her but sadly I don’t have that choice at present. I could leave, do blogging full time but I don’t want that so I’ll just have to keeping doing the lotto 🙂

I decided to do this post as I get asked so frequently about staycations & hotels around Ireland. This post is a list of fabulous hotels to stay in around Ireland. I’ll name them by county so it’s easier for everyone. I absolutely love Ireland and love nothing more than a weekend away. There’s so many beautiful hotels and places to explore around Ireland that sometimes we forget how great we have it. The photos above are me staying in The Europe Hotel (left) and Lough Eske Castle (right). I know it’s always weather depending but it really is a gorgeous island we live on.

So there you have it guys. I hope that whatever hotel you choose from the list, you have a fabulous stay. I was trying to think did I have an ultimate favourite and I probably think it has to be either The Europe Hotel or Lough Eske Castle but that said I’ve about 10 other absolute favourites.

Happy holidays or happy staycation guys 🙂
