It's the most wonderful time of the year, and we're rounding up the best gifts of the season!

When doing your Christmas shopping it’s always important to support local, but this year, more so than ever, we want to draw your attention to some incredible Irish businesses and tourist destinations that have spent a large majority of this year either closed, moving their businesses online, or just feeling the pinch from the pandemic.
Remembering to support local, independent brands and hotels here in Ireland makes such a difference and so, here are some incredible travel gift ideas for your friend who hopes to get out and explore a lot more in 2021.
1. Go Anywhere Gift Card
Launched earlier this year by the Irish Hotels Federation (IHF), Irelandhotels.com’s ‘Go Anywhere Gift Card’ is an ideal Christmas gift that offers tremendous flexibility; enabling family and friends to create lasting memories at any of the hundreds of participating hotels and guesthouses around Ireland.

Situated on the banks of Lough Ree, an escape in the heart of Ireland to relax, savour a delicious dinner and enjoy a lazy breakfast in bed is the perfect gift this Christmas.

Prices for this one-night cosy getaway with dinner and breakfast start from €375.
