IMH sept 4 (1)

One of the few things that we can thank this pandemic for is that it gave us more time to spend with our loved ones. If we go a step further, it also renewed our appreciation for the abundance of great holiday locations we have in our country. If you’re thinking of getting the family together for a well overdue catch up and one last blow out before summer ends, then listen up! Here’s 4 fantastic Air bnbs for an unforgettable family reunion.

1.The Lime House, Slane, Co. Meath.


Located just outside of Dublin, Slane is an extremely popular tourist destination which is simply steeped in Irish history. Nicknamed ‘The Royal County’ we thought it would be fitting to show you an Air Bnb that’s fit for a king or queen. Hence, we introduce to you, The Lime House.

The Lime House has 6 en-suite bedrooms and comfortably sleeps 22 people, so there’s enough room for the whole family! The house encapsulates a huge kitchen and a sizeable communal area on the ground floor.

On its grounds there is a BBQ, a pizza oven and the best part? A hot tub. The Lime House is Ireland’s largest strawbale residence so it’s very spacious and comfortable. In case you were wondering what a strawbale residence is? It’s a building which has rows of bales often running in bonds on its foundation. Pretty cool right?

Notably, just a stone’s throw away from the property there is a large naturally heated outdoor pool which is good to use all year round. So there’s plenty of fun to be had for the whole family at this location.

If you’re looking to get the family together but you don’t want to stray too far from Dublin, then this might be the ideal location for you and your relations.

2.Luxurious property in Kinsale, Co. Cork.


The rebel county is known for its stunning coastline and its variety of breath-taking tourist destinations. From the north to the south and the east to the west this county has everything you could want for your family reunion. It must be argued however that one of Cork’s most beloved spots is the fishing town of Kinsale. Tucked away in the heart of Kinsale is an Air Bnb that will leave you lost for words.

This Air bnb is just an 8 minute drive from the stunning links of Old Head, so if you have any golfers in your family this is sure to have them squealing with delight. This property has 6 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms, but don’t be mistaken, it can comfortably sleep up to 22 people.

The interior of the house is kitted out in the most luxurious fashion and its windows look out on the rugged coastline of West Cork. Outside the property there is a heated gazebo which sits ten people and can be utilised in the evening. If this doesn’t sound like fun enough, there’s also an onsite trampoline!

The town centre of Kinsale is only a short drive from the door of the house also, so if you want to sample the famous fish of Kinsale you can do so in a timely fashion.
