Five Mid-Term Deals for Teachers! (Lawd knows you deserve a break)




Spurred on by a message I received from a reader, who happens to be a school teacher, looking for recommendations for budget midterm breaks for couples, I gathered up 5 fantastic deals for 2 nights for 2 people for less than €100 in total.

5. County Arms Hotel, Birr, Offaly


Escapes.ie has an amazing deal on at the moment, €99 for 2 people for 2 nights B&B including a complimentary bottle of wine if you dine in their restaurant and full access to their leisure club. This beautiful family run Georgian country house hotel is set on 9 acres of landscaped gardens. 

There’s lots to do in the area should you choose to leave the stunning surroundings of the hotel such as a visit to Tullamore Dew, Birr Castle, a walk through Lough Borra Parklands or a hike up the Slieve Bloom Mountains. Whatever you decide to do you can rest assured you’ve gotten a real bargain!

4. The Wyatt Hotel, Westport, Mayo



Head over to pigsback.com to grab this deal while it’s still available, €89 for 2 nights B&B for 2 people sharing. Included in the offer is a host of extras such as a 2 for 1 deal on a future hotel stay at any Select Hotels of Ireland hotel, discounts in local shops, full access to Westport Leisure Park and late checkout. The Wyatt Hotel has recently undergone extensive refurbishment and upgrades so you‘ll be in the lap of luxury complete with a Nespresso machine in your room. 

The list of things to do in and around Westport is long and varied; you can cycle the Great Western Greenway, go on a cruise in Killary Harbour, hike up Craogh Patrick and visit Kylemore Abbey. Whether you choose to island hop in Clew Bay, visit the Céide Fields or do none of the above one thing is certain, you’ll fall in love with the scenery and come back relaxed and refreshed ready for the new school term.
3. Self-Catered Apartment, County Leitrim


Livingsocial.com currently has a great deal for a self-catering break to Carrick-on-Shannon, €89 for 2 people for 2 nights with an option to add up to 3 more people as these apartments sleep 5. Relax and unwind in one of the many coffee shops and bars in the area or if you’re more adventurous you could go sailing on the Shannon or take a ramble along the local nature trails.

2. Auburn Lodge, Ennis, Co Clare



Now this is what I call a deal from escapes.ie, 2 nights B&B for 2 people including a main course evening meal, full access to the leisure centre and late checkout all for the amazing price of just €99. You can spend your day chilling in the sauna, steam room, Jaccuzzi & pool or brush up on your history and visit the Burren a UNESCO World Heritage Site. 

There are oodles of things to do in County Clare such as a trip to The Cliffs of Moher, visit the Ailwee Caves or a road trip to Bunratty Castle and Folk Park.



1. Benners Hotel, Tralee, Co Kerry



This 200 year old family run hotel is located in the heart of a medieval town. Benners is famous for its quality food and impeccable service. Groupon.ie has an offer of just €89 for 2 nights B&B for 2 people sharing with late checkout included. If you’re new to Groupon sign up and use code SAVE10 to save a further €10 on this already superb offer. 

Fans of Star Wars would particularly like this deal as it affords you the chance to visit Skellig Michael where the last movie was filmed. One of my favourite scenic road trips in Ireland is the Ring of Kerry which is easily accessible from Tralee.
