You will spend two nights at the The Merrion Hotel, located in the heart of Dublin city centre. The Merrion is the capital’s most luxurious five-star hotel, and a proud member of The Leading Hotels of the World. The 142-bedroom and suite hotel is as welcoming as it is stylish. An impeccable restoration of four Georgian townhouses, The Merrion is a marriage of exquisite comfort, relaxed elegance and advanced guest facilities, including free Wi-Fi, an 18m pool, spa and gym. The Merrion is home to the 2-star Michelin Restaurant Patrick Guilbaud, The Cellar Bar, The Garden Room, and the intimate No. 23 Cocktail Bar.

Then, spend a peaceful and comfortable night at the Ballymaloe House in the beautiful East Cork countryside. In addition to Ballymaloe House's simple and elegant accommodations, full of fresh flowers brought in from the garden daily, you will be treated to their world-famous dinner. Ballymaloe House chefs draw up the dinner menu every day depending on what comes in from the garden, farm, local suppliers and from the boats at Ballycotton. In the morning, you'll also enjoy a breakfast of fresh, local ingredients and a variety of hot, freshly cooked options.

End your trip with two nights at Parknasilla Resort, nestled in the shadows of the Kerry mountains amidst islands, inlets and hidden beaches. You will enjoy a restful space, filled with natural light where you can sit quietly and marvel at the sheer beauty of the calm seascape and rugged landscape that surrounds you. The Hotel features an Oceanside Spa, Pool, Thermal Suite and Hot Tub Deck where you can relax and enjoy Ireland's beautiful west coast. With easy access to Ireland's Wild Atlantic Way, the charming town of Kenmare to the East, the colourful village of Sneem to the West and the Killarney National Park with its famous lakes, your stay at Parknasilla is sure to delight.

Enjoy a round of golf and lunch for two at the Luttrellstown Castle Resort. Just twenty minutes from Dublin airport, set on 567 acres of lush private parkland, lies a championship golf course befitting a country in the top tier of global golfing destinations. Masterfully designed down to the last detail by celebrated course architects Donald Steel and Tom MacKenzie, the 18-hole championship Golf Course at Luttrellstown Castle Resort is 7,347 naturally- contoured yards of mature parklands, links-style bunkers, water hazards and a state-of-the-art, alpine lodge-style clubhouse, all set within the walls of a centuries-old private estate.

Aer Lingus' new business class cabins deliver a stress-free flight, with luxury dining as standard, superb lounge facilities to keep you fresh and relaxed, and the connectivity you need to stay in touch. Aer Lingus' new seat transforms into a fully lie-flat 6.5ft long bed. And with a width of 22 inches, you'll have plenty of room to stretch out as you dream your way across the Atlantic.
