The Queen Visits Northern Ireland – Inspiring Cottage Breaks in Ireland

Today the Queen has begun a two-day visit to Northern Ireland, covering Belfast and County Fermanagh, as part of the Diamond Jubilee tour.

We were inspired by seeing this beautiful area of Ireland receiving some well deserved positive TV coverage and so we have put together a list of selected holiday cottages in County Fermanagh and Belfast that are perfect for a short break or summer holiday.

County Fermanagh is mainly rural, covers nearly 653 square miles and has a population in the region of 57,000.  The biggest town, and one HM The Queen is visiting on this trip, is Enniskillen which is the county town. The island town has a range of attractions including the Castle Coole Estate and Enniskillen Castle, which is home to the museum of The Royal Inniskilling Fusiliers and the 5th Royal Inniskilling Dragoon Guards.

Other attractions County Fermanagh include Castle Archdale, Crom Estate, Devenish Island, Florence Court and Lough Navar Forest Park.

The Fermanagh County Show is held in August, other good County and Agricultural Shows in Ireland include Balmoral Show in Belfast and the Armagh Show.

If you are heading to Northern Ireland for a weekend break, short break or holiday have a great time and don’t forget to send us some pictures via Facebook.

Happy St George’s Day – what to do and where to stay

Well it hasn’t exactly started as the brightest and warmest St George’s Day but we do hope that whatever you are doing on this special day that you have a great time.

If you are looking for something to do this St George’s Day, whatever the weather may hold, we have put together a list of top tourist attractions across England.  There are lots of things for couples, families or groups to do from historic houses and castles to theme parks and zoos.  Take a look at some English holiday attractions

We think St George’s Day is the best time to think about the very best of England and so we have put together a list of selected self catering cottages, apartments and holiday flats across England – from the Northumberland Coast and Yorkshire Moors to the Cotswolds and West Country.  You can even find plenty with open fires or wood burning stoves so that you can be snug and warm even if the dire May weather forecasts prove to be right!  See a great selection of St Georges Day English self catering cottages and apartments

If you can’t get away for a last-minute break this St George’s Day then why not use the time to plan a May Bank holiday get-away, remember we have an extra long break this year with Diamond Jubilee weekend providing an extended break.
