comfortable,  best value for money and relaxing way to holiday in Ireland. When you get the rate for a house calculate the cost by

  • number nights staying
  • the number of people  in your party.

Most self-catering houses are for 1 -3 bedrooms but you can also find larger house with 4- 6 bedrooms, or a group of holiday homes beside one another for extended family groups to stay in. From November 2021 onwards you will be able to book directly with owners on the website.
