Best locations in Ireland to spend Valentine’s Day
Planning on calling in your babysitter this Valentine’s Day? You should never over-look the appeal our little island has for those seeking a romantic Valentine’s Day. Here are our top recommended locations for couple’s seeking an intimate getaway this February.
Ireland’s natural backdrop is ideal for boosting the romance this Valentine’s Day, and it would be silly not to take advantage of this. A romantic hike by one of our tranquil waterfalls or an intimate picnic for two on one of our calming coasts are always good choices. We recommend Powerscourt Waterfall in Co. Wicklow, Glenloe Waterfall in Co. Antrim or Torc Waterfall in Killarney. If you wish to dedicate a few days to this scenic adventure, a road trip of the Wild Atlantic Way is also a romantic and unforgettable option.
The charming coastal town of West Cork are sure to help set a romantic scene for you and your beloved. A boat trip around Baltimore, a romantic beach stroll along Rosscarbery’s coasts or an intimate dinner for two in Clonakilty are just some of the option available to you. You can even venture out to some of Cork’s offshore islands for ultimate intimacy and seclusion.
If your ideal Valentine’s Day must include a buzzing nightlife, Galway city may be the one for you. Always buzzing until the early hours of the morning, you and your significant other can opt for cocktails in a classy bar or dance the night away in one of their acclaimed nightclubs. Connacht’s largest city also plays host to many activities and attractions to ensure you have plenty of entertainment during the day as well.
Every province in Ireland is host to its own unique and beautiful castle or manor residence that would make a great setting for your Valentine’s Day getaway. If you want to feel like royalty this Valentine’s Day, opt for one of these elegant venues for your couple’s escape. Adare Manor, Lough Rynn Castle Estate, and Belleek Castle are only some of the dazzling locations Ireland has to offer for those seeking a regal break from reality.
The home of ‘First Dates Ireland’
The Gibson Hotel in Dublin City is home to the popular ‘First Dates Ireland’ TV series, and so it seems only fitting to spend Valentine’s Day in the famous Coda Eatery restaurant. Top off your meal with drinks in the Hemi Bar and an overnight stay in this luxurious venue to ensure love is in the air on your Valentine’s Day. Located right next to the 3 Arena, this Dublin city setting means there are no shortage of things to see and do at your door step during an overnight stay here.
