Looking for someplace special on your Scratchable Map Ireland to bring a loved one this Valentines?
Here are our recommendations.
The Spanish Arch, Galway City
Why not take a wander down Quay Street and the Latin Quarter and take in the magnificent urban vibes?
How about pizza for two at Dough Brothers Pizza or ice cream in Gino's of Shop Street?
You'll do well to spend a better evening than sitting by the fire and listening to a bit of trad in Taaffe's on Shop Street.
Seans Bar, Athlone
A pint of Guiness by the fire in Ireland's oldest pub.
The Rock of Cashel, Tipperary
'The Rock' is one of the world's most stunning castles with beautiful views of the surrounding Tipperary landscape.
Bring them. They won't be disappointed. Either will you.
After, we suggest a meal in Bailey's Hotel Cellar Bar on the main street. If you are happy to stretch the budget a little more you could try, Chez Hans, a restaurant in a stunning church setting.
TJ Ryans or Feehans for a drink after dinner.
Zuni is a lovely restaurant for a date. Make sure to try their famous melting chocolate bomb desert.
If you want to go that extra mile Campagne is Michelin Star.
For cosy drinks the Dylan Whiskey Bar is recommended.
If you’re making a weeknd of it, we like the Rivercourt which over looks the Kilkenny Castle.
To top it off, you can’t beat a walk in the grounds of the castle to shake off any cobwebs from the night before.
Being honest, we actually reckon most places on Scratchable Map Ireland are quite romantic.
Happy Valentines 🗺☘️💝
