Some day soon we shall have the freedom to drive to any corner of Ireland, check into a hotel and soak up some luxury. Thankfully in Ireland, we’re spoiled for choice when it comes to accommodation options.  The trickiest part can often be deciding where to go, with tempting restaurant menus, beautiful gardens and luxurious bedrooms all enticing you in different directions. If you’re not sure where to begin, Ireland’s Blue Book features some of the best places to stay and eat in the country.

Ireland’s Blue Book is a unique collection of country house hotels, manor houses, castles and restaurants. Located throughout the island of Ireland, these charming and stylish hideaways are the perfect choice for your romantic escape or weekend retreat. Activities vary from golf, fishing, spas and cookery schools or just relaxing in warm and comfortable surroundings.

New additions to the Blue Book for 2021 include Delphi Lodge in Galway, a stunning 1830s country house hotel in the heart of Connemara. Dax Restaurant in Dublin city centre has also joined the collection, offering fine French cuisine in the city’s Georgian Quarter.
