Self Catering Accommodation in Ireland

One of the best ways to see a place at your own pace is to stay in a self-catering property: you choose what and when you eat, heading out to the shops to buy local delicacies or choosing to dine at a restaurant if you like. In beautiful Ireland, there are plenty of options to choose from: amongst the isle's dramatic scenery of coastal cliffs and mountains, lakes, rolling fields and forest are historic restored mews and stone cottages and cutting-edge purpose built eco-retreats suited perfectly to the more independent minded traveller or someone who just fancies really getting away from it all, whether with friends, family or just a loved one. We feature some of the best below, and if you need help getting there, check out our expert guide to travelling to, from and around Ireland without flying.
