Anyone ever stayed in a charming, secluded quaint cottage?

Jump to last reply

Hey everyone; I'm trying to plan a short fun yet romantic getaway for my husband and I (no kids) and I have this image in my mind of whisking off to Ireland, driving around the countryside, spending our evenings in pubs listening to traditional music, and sleeping/hanging out in a quaint little 1 bedroom thatched roof cottage with flowers on the windowsill and a cute little cottage garden, with a view of the ocean or lake or something.

Hehehe, it's good to dream, isn't it?

Anyway, I'm scouring the net looking for somewhere that fits the bill, but I would love personal recommendations if anyone has had this "dream experience."

Or if anyone has recommendations of specific areas of Ireland (or heck, England or Scotland or even France if it's more likely there!) to focus in on, that'd be great too. I've spent a little time in Western Ireland (Dingle, the Burren, etc) and loved that area, but I'd like to see more of the country as well.

As far as budgets go, we typically spend less than 120 Euros (so about $150) a night in hotels, but the "perfect place" might merit paying quite a bit more....

We are living in Belgium right now

Suggestions welcome!
Carrie
