Gifting Amazing Experiences with the ‘Go Anywhere Gift Card’ from Irelandhotels.com
With staycations all in vogue, the ‘Go Anywhere Gift Card’ from Irelandhotels.com is the ideal gift for any occasion. Launched by the Irish Hotels Federation (IHF) and accepted by hundreds of hotels and guesthouses throughout the country, it is Ireland’s ultimate hotel gift card. What better way to surprise friends, family and loved ones than with the gift of an amazing break away to celebrate their birthday, anniversary, special occasion or as a very special ‘thank you’.
Simply visit Irelandhotels.com and you’re just moments away from giving the perfect gift that is sure to brighten up anyone’s day. Supported by Fáilte Ireland, the ‘Go Anywhere Gift Card’ is all about giving the gift of a memorable holiday experience and discovering the very best of what Ireland has to offer – all while supporting local tourism and Irish businesses. The gift card can be delivered by email or post in a special gift box and offers tremendous flexibility with hundreds of hotel and guesthouse options – whether for a family getaway, a luxury stay in a destination hotel or a mini-break.
Recent research from Fáilte Ireland shows that 60% of Irish people are planning a break in Ireland over the next five to six months – rediscovering the county’s hidden gems, traditional attractions and spectacular sights. Best of all, a holiday at home in Ireland is the ultimate in flexibility – just pack the car or hop on the train/ bus, no restrictions on luggage, and not even the dog needs a passport if they’re lucky enough to be on the guest list!
The only question now is “Where to go?” Will it be a hotel by the sea along the Wild Atlantic Way; perhaps a city break such as in Dublin; maybe jumping headlong into history in Ireland’s Ancient East; or losing oneself in Ireland’s Hidden Heartlands?
Commenting on the launch of the ‘Go Anywhere Gift Card’ from Irelandhotels.com, IHF President Elaina Fitzgerald Kane said: “Irish hotels and guesthouses excel at creating truly memorable experiences for our guests, and that’s why we’re very excited to be launching this gift card today – bringing together hundreds of our member hotels and guesthouses to create a fantastic and really flexible gift experience. As a nation we are very generous when it comes to giving gifts and what better way to brighten up someone’s day than a gift that opens up so many options for a break away in Ireland. And of course, it’s a great way to support Irish tourism and local businesses.”
At the launch of the new “Go Anywhere Gift Card”, Catherine Martin TD, Minister for Media, Tourism, Arts, Culture, Sport and the Gaeltacht said: “The ‘Go Anywhere Gift Card’ is a wonderful idea for a gift, especially with the added benefits of the Stay and Spend Scheme. It will afford the recipient an opportunity to explore and discover the wonderful hotels available all over our beautiful country and the excellent value on offer.”
Paul Kelly, CEO, Fáilte Ireland stated: “The ‘Go Anywhere Gift Card’ is a very welcome initiative by the Irish Hotels Federation which Fáilte Ireland is extremely pleased to support. The card will make a perfect gift particularly as we enter the run-in to Christmas and we hope it will encourage and inspire people to take breaks and enjoy the abundance of wonderful hotels across the country.”
The ‘Go Anywhere Gift Card’ can be purchased online and can be delivered electronically, or in a special gift box. The gift card also facilitates the receiver booking directly with the hotel or guesthouse, which can have additional benefits such as special offers and reduced prices not available through third party sites.
The ‘Go Anywhere Gift Card’ can be purchased from www.Irelandhotels.com in denominations of €50 to €1,000, and can be redeemed at any of the hundreds of participating hotels and guesthouses across Ireland, which are all listed on the website.
