Christmas Cottages Ireland
Get yourself over to one of our Christmas cottages in Ireland for a truly memorable festive celebration. From Donegal to Cork, from Mayo to Wexford, we've hundreds to choose from whether you're holidaying as a couple or family.
Most of our Christmas holiday homes in Ireland are traditionally decorated with holly and ivy, perhaps a small crib and a Christmas tree draped in baubles and tinsel. All you have to remember are your stockings for Santa to fill, then leave a mince pie, glass of Guinness and a carrot for Rudolph and wait...
The words 'He's been!' the next morning indicate it's time to open presents and have fun!
The big feast
When you're on holiday in one of our festive Irish cottages, it's always good to get everyone involved with the preparations. From making stuffing and peeling vegetables to stirring gravy and topping up the wine, somehow it doesn't seem such a chore as everyone soon gets into the festive spirit. You'll also find you have enough of everything - and they usually match. Let's say you're a family of ten; you'll find ten matching plates for your turkey and trimmings, ten matching glasses and ten matching dining chairs around an appropriately sized table - yes that's right, not a single emergency chair or decorating table in sight!
A predominantly Catholic country, Midnight Mass and religious services on Christmas Day are extremely well attended and visitors are truly welcome. And if your Christmas holiday rental is near the coast, look out for a Christmas Swim when locals brave icy temperatures and dash into the sea. On St. Stephen's Day (Boxing Day), meanwhile, why not have a flutter at the races or watch a football match? Both highly popular pastimes on the Emerald Isle.
