I did a mini staycation last weekend, spent quiet a few euro and no massive value. We are a very tolerant nation to be putting up with Calcutta style outdoor dining.

Going to Kerry after the son gets his holidays so it’s peak season. We are paying less then that per night for the three of us. Anecdotally I am hearing places around the coast are pretty booked up for summer so that will drive prices up if your booking last minute. If your willing to avoid Cork, Kerry, Clare, Galway etc and head somewhere a little off the beaten track you should find better deals or avoid weekends and go midweek.

We did a few extra long weekends last summer in different places and had a great time.

Any hotel near the coast or beach are crazy money, one of the smaller hotels in a small seaside town in Mayo wanted €250 for a twin room on a Saturday night in June, crazy thing was, they were full most other weekend nights so people are obviously paying it
