Hotels in Dublin & The East

We divide our hotels into three basic categories, Country Homes, First-Class Hotels, and Deluxe Hotels. Below is a brief description of each type of accommodation.

Country Homes

Our most requested style of accommodation. Country homes and manors are small hotels offering fine accommodations and good values. A great way to meet the locals!

First-Class Hotels

Generally three and four-star hotels that offer more spacious accommodations and more facilities than the country homes. Most of our first-class hotels also command great locations close to or overlooking some of the world's best golf courses!

Deluxe Hotels

Elegant hotels for the discerning traveler. If you are looking for the very best the area has to offer, these hotels are for you.
