That’s for a seven night holiday taken any week between Saturday 14 July and Saturday 18 August 2012 at Moore Bay Holiday Homes just a few minutes’ away from a Blue Flag beach in beautiful County Clare, and represents a saving of £70 on the original brochure price.

Each modern, tourist-board rated cottage sleeps up to five with one double room ensuite, a twin and a single.  The open-plan living space is family-friendly, and within the grounds there’s a tennis court, crazy golf, football pitch and toddlers’ play area.  Local activities include Kilkee Surf School, a water-sports centre, fishing trips and golf courses.  The seaside resort of Kilkee, just a few minutes’ drive away, has an indoor acqua park and a great selection of pubs and restaurants.

Other holidays where the same deal applies include Seacliffe holiday cottages in County Waterford, superbly set above Counsellors Strand, a sandy cove at Dunmore East. Here, a week’s summer holiday for a family of up to five now costs £839, saving £70.

And in County Cork, Sam Maguire’s Cottages (named after a local Gaelic football legend) just outside the pretty town of Clonakilty are now available at just £844 for a family of up to six, again saving £70.  These four-star cottages are set in glorious countryside, within easy reach of West Cork’s fabulous beaches: Inchydoney, Baltimore and Bantry to name but three.

Other discounted cottage holiday locations include Killarney, Tralee, Wexford, Druids Glen in County Wicklow and Swords just outside Dublin.

All discounted holidays must be booked by 16 June 2012.  All prices include self-catering accommodation and return ferry crossings for a family car, two adults and up to four children.  Choose Holyhead to Dublin on Ulysses, or Pembroke to Rosslare on the Isle of Inishmore.
