Discover the delights of Ireland and enjoy the perfect honeymoon-with-a-difference courtesy of the Dromoland Collection, which comprises two of Ireland’s most magnificent five-star resorts.
The four night package is the perfect mini-moon – ideal for those who have limited time off or want a short break closer to home to soak up the newlywed spirit before heading off on a long-haul holiday. Couples can enjoy two nights at the majestic Dromoland Castle in County Clare and two nights at the chic Castlemartyr Resort in County Cork, for £1195 per person enjoying exceptional resort amenities at both and wonderful chauffer-driven jaunts to some of Ireland’s best-loved sights; making this a truly memorable visit.
When you arrive at Dromoland Castle, you’ll find chocolate-covered strawberries and champagne in your Queen Anne room – making you feel just like one of the many Hollywood A-listers or royalty that have visited this world-renowned castle hotel. Take your time over a leisurely full Irish breakfast and explore this romantic setting before being whisked off by your dedicated driver to the spectacular Cliffs of Moher – known as Ireland’s most romantic spot and the country’s nomination for the ‘new wonders of the world’.
Enjoy lunch at this breathtaking location before heading back through the mesmerizing landscape of the Burren National Park. Back at the hotel, you can choose from three couples’ activities including falconry, a golf lesson or a pampering spa treatment together. The package also includes one candlelit dinner in the exquisitely elegant Earl of Thomond restaurant.
The following two nights will be spent at Castlemartyr Resort, under two and half hours’ scenic drive away, in a sumptuous Manor House State Room with silk-lined walls and beautiful furnishings, boasting stunning views over the lake and meadows and Champagne and handmade chocolates awaiting your arrival. You’ll enjoy a leisurely Irish breakfast each morning and dinner one evening in The Bell Tower restaurant, with its delicious menu of locally-sourced produce. During your stay at Castlemartyr Resort your chauffeur will drive you to the famous Blarney Castle to kiss the iconic blarney stone or to the Cobh Heritage Centre, a fascinating museum dedicated to Irish emigration.
On your return journey you’ll have the chance to sample some of the world’s most famous Irish whiskey, with a guided tour of The Jameson’s Distillery at Midleton, which is responsible for the majority of all whiskey produced in Ireland today. On your return to the resort you’ll be ready to relax at the impressive spa and wellness centre where you can indulge in a His & Hers massage – the ultimate romantic treat! The Dromoland Collection Honeymoon Package costs £1195 per person based on two nights at each resort* with full Irish breakfast each morning, one dinner at each property, Champagne and chocolates on arrival, chauffeur-driven tours and couples’ activities and spa treatments.
