Tourism Ireland’s online film highlights some varied and unusual places to stay on the island of Ireland

Haunted castles, bubble domes and cutting edge hostels … in Ireland, accommodation is more than just a bed to sleep in!

Tourism Ireland has released a new video called “Places to Stay on the Island of Ireland”, specially created to showcase the varied and quirky places to stay here – from castles to cottages and lighthouses and even bubble domes!

Tourism Ireland’s film highlights some of our best accommodation options, to suit all tastes and budgets, as well as the guaranteed warm welcome. It gives the viewer practical information on how B&Bs, guesthouses and hotels are rated. It also showcases a few more unique accommodation options – including haunted castles, glamping and a stay on board an inland cruiser. The message to prospective holidaymakers everywhere is – whether it's a friendly B&B, a quirky hostel or something more unusual you're after, then the island of Ireland has you covered.



The film is being promoted through Tourism Ireland’s social platforms, including Facebook (3.6 million fans worldwide), Twitter (345,000 followers) and YouTube.
