Alright, so this one is a bit mad, but if you’re looking for THE getaway of the summer with all your mates, this is the one for you!
Group Getaway to Westport
I spotted this deadly island resort over at Airbnb that I just had to share with you. Ever fancied staying on your own private island? Well you can do just that here – the Collanmore Island Lodge is a short 2-minute boat ride across the water and it’s the ideal location for a huge group getaway, whether it’s a hen or stag do, celebrating a birthday or even just a well-deserved get-together. There’s space for up to a whopping 22 people, with super cosy pod best distributed between 3 lodges. On-site there’s a wealth of activities on offer such as kayaking and stand-up paddling, or you could choose to go for a nice stroll along the island’s private beach. Plus your hosts are always at hand to help organise entertainment of all kinds. Get a live trad music session set up or even get a Chinese takeaway delivered to your island!
What really seals the deal for me here though are the amenities on-site. Be your own bar tender with your very own self-catered bar (BYOB of course!), or let that stress melt away in the hot tub and steam room.
There are still some cheap dates in June available, but there are loads and loads of dates across 2019 and 2020 so see what takes your fancy! I’ve included a sample booking in the screenshot below. :)
