HARVEST BREAKS & VEGETARIAN COOKING
Georgina Campbell suggests some especially interesting places to take an off-season break – places where nature’s bounty is celebrated in wonderful ways: foraging expeditions, cookery courses and, of course, excellent seasonal meals to enjoy.
GROWN UP GETAWAYS
September is a great month for busy parents – the kids have all settled back into school and there’s a sense of ordered restored…time for a well-deserved short break for grown-ups only, either à deux or with a few friends. We suggest some great places for that special getaway.
You can’t beat a traditional family holiday and there’s no better place for it than Ireland, as the range of great places to stay right across (and around) the country is fantastic. From the charm of West Cork to the dignity of the Giant’s Causeway, from the long golden beaches of Sunny South-East to the gloriously uncrowded north-west tip of Donegal, and from rugged Connemara to the lush riverlands of East Cork, there’s a wonderful base waiting there for you – and great value is to be had too. We suggest a few of our favourite hotels, country houses, guesthouses and B&Bs below, and many of them would offer self-catering nearby too. Contact them through the website and you should be pleasantly surprised by the customer-friendliness of the prices offered this year – you really don’t have to spend time hanging around airports with children in tow when heading for your perfect family holiday destination.
In tune with the mood of the moment, the best B&Bs, guesthouses and country houses are the places to be, as travellers seek rest and relaxation alongside good food and good value in traditional hideaways in quiet rural and coastal locations.
