The world is full of some wonderful places, but it’s not always possible to visit them. Not every couple can afford the luxury of travel, or perhaps the timing to leave the country is just not right. This doesn’t mean all is lost, as there are some amazing spots to honeymoon right here in Ireland. We've picked three of our favourites, to get you started!


1. A spot on the Dingle Peninsula

Voted number one in a recent survey by Chill Insurance, this spot is perfect for couples looking to escape it all, after a busy wedding. The peninsula offers dramatic scenery and beautiful beaches and coves for you to relax. If you are feeling adventurous then a walk along the trails could scratch that itch.

As the peninsula is a hidden luxury you must be prepared for a long drive, this means checking your vehicle before taking to the road, fuelling up before you leave, and planning your route.
