    Signature

    We use premium hotels that are unique expressions of the region. Often they’ve had a previous life as a monastery or a castle, but in every case they offer an exceptionally comfortable stay.

    Bistro

    These are stylish 4-star properties that offer a casual and comfortable stay. Often without a 24-hour concierge or room service, they tend to be smaller family-run hotels that are perfect for the region.

Discover The Emerald Isles

Failté Romhat! The Burren and Connemara are regions steeped in history, with glacial-era geography and thousands of years of human endurance and evolution recorded in the very landscape. Rugged mountains level out into the lunar landscapes of karst and bog, ultimately running right into the Atlantic. This diversity of nature, coupled with the constantly changing weather, Neolithic ruins and pastoral lifestyle breeds a character all its own, and this week will be full of such encounters. In the numerous villages and towns you’ll bike through, and in the real life castles you’ll lay your head to rest at night, one can’t help but feel the true Irish welcome.
