Thinking about taking a vacation this winter, and trying to choose a great destination? Maybe you should consider an excursion to Ireland with Travel Impressions.
Winter can be a perfect time for an Irish getaway. The crowds tend to be thin when compared to “peak” seasons, so you’ll be able to stroll around and enjoy the sights without battling so many other people. This is also a great time to take in some of the beautiful natural attractions away from the metropolitan areas. A nice fast-paced walk in the brisk air can really get your blood pumping.
Winter months are a great time to make the most of all of the many watering holes that are so popular here. What better time to visit an Irish pub than when it serves as a welcome escape from chilly temperatures? You can sit by a fire and warm up with a hot drink—although of course you don’t want to miss the chance to enjoy a pint of legendary Guinness.
Worried about the weather? Ireland is known for having a moderate climate, so you will rarely encounter extremes, even in the winter. You may have to endure some showers or fog, but many people find that just adds to the mystical and mysterious atmosphere of the region. Major snowstorms are also fairly uncommon.
One of the best reasons to head to Ireland in winter: you can take advantage of some great deals. Travel Impressions is currently running a terrific promotion that offers major savings on trips to the Emerald Isle. Spend three nights in one of several top-notch hotels, starting at just $225 per person.
The most affordable option is the Arbutus Hotel in Killarney. Accommodations here are charming and comfortable, and the staff is known for being super helpful and friendly. The guest rooms (and property overall) are infused with character and rich local flavor.
Then there’s the Athenaeum House Hotel in Waterford, where you can relax in the old-fashioned atmosphere of a restored 17th Century Georgian House in a banks of the River Suir. In the perfect blend of old and new, this hotel also offers all of the modern amenities a demanding traveler could want. Plus, you can feast on delicious Irish cuisine made with local ingredients.

Those who prefer to stay in luxury right in the middle of the action might want to opt for the Westin Dublin, a spectacular hotel that occupies its own full block in the heart of the city. Guests can easily walk to many of the most popular attractions in Dublin, and your knowledgeable concierge can make great suggestions and guide you in planning your itinerary. After a tiring day of sightseeing, you’ll appreciate the chance to get a great night’s sleep in the Heavenly Bed found in every room. The special architecture of this place is one of the things that make it so special. The Atrium Lounge is the perfect spot for star-gazing!
