Been hunting for the perfect spot for a staycation but being hit with the same old “sorry, this date’s unavailable” message time after time?
These 6 great getaways still have dates available for booking this September! We’d hurry if we were you…
For romantic lux
For one night only… Secure a night under the stars in one of Finn Lough’s premium forest bubble domes. Featuring 180 transparent walls, you can truly escape the noise of the outside world and get lost in nature. Each dome even comes with star maps so that you can pick out the constellations in the sky! And you know we're a fan of stars. Your stay features a "bespoke four poster bed, ensuite bathroom, free standing stone bath, Nespresso coffee machine, fluffy robe and daily breakfast."
We were sold on the fluffy robe and free standing stone bath to be honest! The only night still available is the 22nd-23rd. Blink and it'll be gone. Book here
For medieval chic
For all of those that know her, you might have been Inspired by our founder Mags's luxury castle getaway this past weekend. Make all of your fairytale dreams come true and stay at the 800-year-old Ashford Castle. Picture exquisite interiors, long strolls across rolling greens and delicious candle-lit dinners. 5*s from us.
The only hard part? Choosing which room to stay in. Book here.
For those who prefer to glamp

With views of the Kerry Mountains and a king sized bed to boot, the Luxury Lodges are beautifully decorated. You even have your own designated patio area so you can sit back, relax and take in the scenery.
The only remaining dates are from 18th-30th September. Book here

For the active mind
If you want to come away from your staycation feeling energised, deeply relaxed, joyful and open hearted… Carlingford’s weekend retreats are what you’re looking for. Located just an hour out from Dublin and nestled in a valley surrounded by the Cooley Mountains, this is a truly idyllic place to practice. Each retreat includes accommodation, vegetarian/vegan meals, classes and optional hikes in the mountains.
Spend the autumn equinox getting energised or soak up the last benefits of summer, when the weather is still mild and the evenings still long.
