The air is crisp, the clothes are getting heavier and we‘ve all subscribed to Netflix again. Autumn is a time to just breathe after a hectic summer. The evenings are dark early and we all love a good open fire and cuppa. This is all part of the season changing but very quickly we begin to get itchy feet again and want to plan a short getaway that won’t break the bank. A week-long sun holiday isn’t on the cards this side of Christmas but a night or two away is just what the doctor ordered.
Get the Girls Together
You might decide to leave the kids at home and grab your girlfriends for a shopping trip to the capital just before Christmas. The Clayton Hotel Liffey Valley currently have a Stop, Shop and Drop package starting at €85 per person which also includes a €50 voucher for Liffey Valley (5 min walk away) for the room. The very stylish Clayton Hotel Limerick has a Girls are Back in Town offer that includes Prosecco on arrival in the room, a 4-course meal and a cocktail with dinner.
Love is in the Air
Or sneak in a getaway with your other half to the Clayton Hotel Cork City for a few days and get 15% off a three-night stay. If you’ve always wanted to visit Belfast but never found the time then the Clayton Hotel Belfast’s Date Night special offer could tempt you to the city that’s home of the Titanic Museum. This is the dream getaway; think flowers in the room upon arrival, a 3-course evening meal with bubbly, late checkout (2 pm) and the best part; brunch in bed the following morning. Or grab a 2-night stay at the Maldron Hotel Wexford and avail of their Double Delight Package.
Grab the Family and Go
If you want to grab the kids and steal a few days away together as a family then the Maldron Hotel Oranmore, Galway is the perfect destination. The hotel is set up to cater for families and has super offers, especially midweek, at the moment. Similarly, the Clayton Hotel in Sligo has wonderful family packages to keep the kids entertained from start to finish and they even have a Spa for the grown-ups. If you have very small kids and can take a few days break away Monday to Friday then there are some great offers to be had.
If Dublin is on your list of places to take the family then a stay at the Clayton Hotel Leopardstown might just work for you. Their Midterm Pizza Package, starting at €140 per night, includes 2 family size pizzas and ice cream, you can never go wrong with this combination, just ask the kids!
A Short Plane Ride
If you do want to leave the country but don’t want to go too far then Clayton Hotel Birmingham has a wonderful family package at the minute. This hotel is not only family-friendly with newly built rooms, it’s also close to Legoland, Bear Grills Adventure, Drayton Manor, Sea Life Centre and a short drive to West Midlands Safari Park.
It might be a shopping trip with the girls you are after in Wales. The Clayton Hotel Cardiff has a tantalizing package called Afternoon Tea and Fizz, available until the end of the year. It includes Afternoon Tea with prosecco, an overnight stay and breakfast.
So now the only decision left to make is where will you go (and who you’ll take with you so choose wisely!)
