  • Pick a scenic location in the Irish countryside for the stay in your romantic Irish cottage. The natural beauty around you would add to the romantic ambiance.
  • Make sure that the cottage provides all the romantic amenities you need, such as a hot tub, comfortable furnishings and a fireplace.
  • If you intended on spending time beyond the cottage, explore nearby attractions and activities you can do as a couple, such as a nice walk or drink in local pub.
  • Another way to add to the romantic ambience is to coordinate special surprises for your partner, such as a bouquet of flowers or romantic dinner with wine.
  • Irish weather is notoriously unpredictable, even in the summer months, so pack accordingly – have wet wear, waterproof clothing and boots for walking.
