    Any suggestions of hotels that are really Christmassy not too far from Dublin as I am cooking dinner this year again and I have approx 10 days off I was thinking of going to a hotel for a few days after Christmas before the New Year myself and himself his folks also and bringing my mother along too. My mam is not in the best of health on oxygen 20 hours a day so something well equipped, good food, nice atmosphere etc etc

    Thanks

    I'm thinking of doing something similar myself this year. I might venture to Kilkenny, The Lyrath is lovely there but very expensive, but nice for a treat. Johnstown House isn't too far from Dublin and a nice place and not too expensive either.

    Thanks Loughc lots of choice in Kilkenny I must have a look I have approx 10 days off over the season I thought it be nice for us to head off for a few days best of both worlds at home for Christmas but having a mini break too were no one is responsible for the cooking or washing up

    Spent a few days and nights in the Shelbourne last Christmas, checked out Christmas eve. It was wonderful. Big brekky, have meet pals in town. Do some shopping and drop the bags off and meet more pals for drinks. Rinse repeat.

    It was defo a once of thing, unless the euromillions happens, but lovely.

    Thanks LoughC and everyone else for recommendations decided on Johnstown Estate it's not far from Dublin and seems to have everything we want under one roof for the few days
    My mother will be coming with us and his parents too, as my mother does be very ill Christmas is down to us and my other halfs mother looks after her family too for Christmas so we are looking forward to getting away during it having a nice break it will be so nice getting everything handed to us
