Getaway this Autumn with Ireland’s Blue Book

Michelle at The Wilder Townhouse

It’s getting close to Halloween and time to enjoy all that autumn has to offer in our beautiful country. If you excuse the pun, I’ve ‘fall’en for some of the wonderful properties in Ireland’s Blue Book.  So for an autumn break I’ve picked out some great value deals from this magical Book for you to enjoy around the country. I’ve included options for families, couples and friends with five great properties waiting to be explored.

Fall on the Wilder Side

I escaped for a wonderful night away recently at the Wilder and truly felt as if I had travelled to another country – all while locked down in my home city. This really is an oasis in Dubin and only a stone’s throw from St Stephen’s Green. Dating from the Victorian Era, with its stunning red-brick facade, The Wilder evokes a real sense of history, perfectly combining its rich heritage with modern elegance and comforts.
