The Perks of Traveling During the Off-Peak Winter Season

The Perks of Traveling During the Off-Peak Winter Season header image

The best way to visit Ireland and Scotland with better rates, lesser crowds and the Celtic Isles (almost) entirely to yourself.


As the off-peak season starts rolling in, the pace is slower, the landscapes transform with beautiful fall colors, our fires burn a bit brighter and our stories seem a bit more magical. To us, winter is one of the most enchanting times to visit our incredible Celtic homelands and here are a few benefits to the reasons why…


Food to Warm the Soul

Take a break from the crisp Celtic air to satisfy your inner Foodie with a hearty bowl of Irish Stew. Or, find comfort in a hot cup of Irish Coffee while you wait for freshly baked soda bread to come out of the oven… These delicacies are our favorite ways to find warmth on a chill winter night and are best when served during the cozy season.


Festival Fun for All

From Halloween festivals in the home where the holiday originated, to festive Christmas markets filled with magic and the world’s most famous St. Patrick’s Day celebration in Dublin… these are the instants that capture our Celtic culture at its finest and you’re personally invited you to experience our timeless traditions for yourself.


First-Choice Accommodations

With students back in school and other less-adventurous travelers hibernating until the more-popular summer months, the off-peak winter season is the best time to get first dibs and VIP treatment at top places to stay across the Celtic Isles including our coziest locations like the regal Ashford Castle, the luxurious Adare Manor, the quaint Cahergal Farmhouse and more.
