Spreading Valentine's Love without Breaking the Bank - 5 Deadly Deals!

With Valentine’s Day less than a month away it’s time to start thinking about what you're going to get that special someone in your life. Having spent 18 years with my husband, I can say from experience, it’s not worth spending a fortune to go out for a meal and stay in a hotel on Valentine’s Day. We’ve had mediocre food, time limited tables, harassed waiting staff and highly inflated bills so we decided a long time ago to spend Valentine’s night at home with a candlelit meal after the children have gone to bed. 

I usually buy my husband a family weekend break so we can celebrate a couple of weeks later when prices are much better and places aren’t as crowded. I’ve found 5 bargain hotel deals so you can do the same, after all there’s nothing as good as the gift of giving especially when it includes a self gift! I know at this time of year most of us still recovering financially from Christmas so I’ve chosen breaks that are extremely budget friendly. The most expensive I have listed is €129 for 2 nights B&B for 2 people.
5. Hotel Westport, Co Mayo

Groupon have a great deal at the moment for Hotel Westport, €129 for 2 nights for 2 people sharing with breakfast. Also included in your stay is full access to the leisure centre complete with pool, sauna, steam room, jacuzzi and gym. Westport is a vibrant heritage town with something to tickle everyone’s fancy; we’ve stayed here a few times and always enjoyed our stay. Vouchers need to be used by 10th March 2016.
