This pretty little cottage on a quiet property in Glenamaddy is the perfect escape for couples. The self-contained place has one bedroom, a fully equipped kitchen and spacious lounge area all decorated in a traditional Irish cottage aesthetic.

Of course, the most unique feature is its built-in bar in the lounge from where you can serve drinks and cosy up by the stove fire.

It’s in a pretty rural area but you’re also just 45 minutes from Galway city and one hour to Sligo, if you want to explore some larger towns.

It’s also in a great location in the village of Castlemaine, close to both the Dingle Peninsula and Iveragh Peninsula. Book a night or see more here.

Conroy’s Old Bar is a gorgeous converted village pub in North Tipperary. The old bar is known locally as the Pub With No Beer and has been completely dry of alcohol since it stopped trading.

But the owners have converted it into a fabulous rental for up to four guests. The mahogany bar and pub interior have been left fully intact.

You can also use the outdoor beer garden area which has an open fire pit for an evening with friends. It’s in quite a remote area, although within a few minutes’ walk you’ll find the real village pub where you get a pint.
