Mothers across Ireland are awaiting Sunday March 18th with a mixture of hope and dread. Will you show her how much you appreciate her tireless efforts on your behalf with another bunch of wilting service-station flowers? Or will you make 2012 the year you really show how much you care? Give your mother a treat this Mother’s Day with a voucher for a GoIreland hotel break. For just €74.50pps, she can enjoy two nights bed and breakfast at a range of superb 3 and 4 star hotels throughout Ireland. And because the break covers two people, she might even bring you.
In Ireland and the UK, Mother’s Day falls on the fourth Sunday in Lent, when the Church allowed a dispensation from strict Lenten observation. In the United States and Australia, however, Mother’s Day falls on the second Sunday in May. The holiday is said to have emerged from ancient festivals dedicated to Mother Earth, with the mother goddess Cybele worshipped in Rome as early as 250 B.C.
Our Short Breaks Ireland hotel deals are available countrywide, including Dublin, Galway, and Cork. We choose only the finest 3 and 4 star hotels, and many offer spa and beauty treatments, for an even more indulgent break. You can also reserve your break for a weekend, and you won’t pay any extra.
Your mother deserves a break, so book a hotel in Ireland for her and let GoIreland turn you into her favourite child.
