How does a mini holiday sound to you?

It’s that time of year again when we are all chomping at the bit to go on holidays.

If you don’t have the time (or the moolah) to go on a full-blown getaway then why not book yourself a fantastic family weekend break instead?

It’s the perfect excuse to escape for a few days, spend some quality time together and maybe even relax a little bit too.

Get planning, because here’s a little roundup of a few brilliant places that won’t break the bank.

Hotel Westport, Mayo.

The fantastic four-star Hotel Westport has huge family rooms that cost as little as €148 per night. You will be treated to a full Irish breakfast each morning and you’ll be able to avail of their award-winning leisure facilities during your stay too. While you’re there, be sure you visit Westport House and explore the Great Western Greenway.

Fota Island Resort, Cork.

Could Cork be the place for you? Fota Island Resort is one of the country’s most popular family hotels and it’s easy to see why. They’ve great amenities such as their swimming pool, fitness classes, kids camps, tennis courts and walking trails.

They also offer a daily shuttle service to nearby Fota House and Gardens, as well as Fota Wildlife Park. You can stay in one of their two bedroom courtyard superior lodges from as little as €225 per night.

Teapot Lane, Leitrim.

If pitching a tent and collecting your own firewood doesn’t really scream relaxing weekend to you then why not try your hand at glamping? Teapot Lane in County Leitrim has lots of gorgeous yurts, caravans and cottages to choose from.

Their adorable Ladybird Yurt sleeps two adults and up to four children at a cost of €260 for a two-night stay – an absolute steal.
