Taking an Irish cottage for a week is a popular option and we have over 500 available. While they vary in style from the modern to the traditional, they are comfortable and, unless otherwise specified, they come fully equipped.

Self Catering Houses and Apartments

These range from apartments to spacious holiday homes. All the properties come fully equipped with every modern conveniences and most of the properties are near coastal locations or close to leisure activities. With your own holiday home in Ireland you can not only explore at your leisure but also enjoy any number of activities such golf, fishing, riding, or simply walking the quiet Irish countryside.
