Irish Ferries Holidays is offering 10% off all 2017 self-drive packages if booked before 28 February.
The deal applies to all ferry-inclusive holidays at the company’s hand-picked hotels, cottages and B&B partners, and to all travel dates including peak summer season weeks.
“And any of our holidays can be secured for a low deposit of just £50 per family,” says head of holidays Ann Pye.
As an example of savings, a 14-night holiday in August in Waterville, County Kerry, costs £1673 for a family of two adults and up to six children, saving £185. These four-star rated detached holiday homes are on the edge of the colourful seaside village and about 750 metres from the coast.
Each house has four bedrooms, and can sleep up to eight, making them ideal for extended family holidays, with a choice of cafes and restaurants in the village, as well as fantastic beaches to discover along the Kerry coast, boat trips, golf courses, activity providers and tourist attractions.
For a hotel break in the scenic north-west of Ireland, in May, a couple could save up to £121 on a week’s holiday that combines three nights at the Galway Bay Hotel, which overlooks the sea and is just two miles from the lively heart of Galway City, with three nights at the four-star Knockranny House Hotel overlooking the picturesque town of Westport, with breath-taking views of Croagh Patrick and Clew Bay’s islands in County Mayo. Add one night at the four-star Mespil Hotel, Dublin at the start or end of the trip, depending on choice of ferry crossings.
With the early booking offer, this holiday, which offers stunning scenery along the Wild Atlantic Way, costs from £532 per couple sharing a double room at hotels, and includes a full Irish breakfast each morning.
All holidays include cruise-ferry travel for passengers and car, with regular departures from Holyhead to Dublin and from Pembroke to Rosslare.
