2021 Wrap Up: Our Top Stories of the Year

Festive Celebrations

Our top six Irish Christmas markets were a favourite among our readers, and there’s no better time to commemorate everything the festive season had to offer us than now. As the year comes to a close, we look back over the most memorable Christmas celebrations.

How the Grinch Stole Christmas

In keeping with our festive theme, this story about The Imperial Hotel, Cork’s Christmas celebrations was another that was loved by ourselves and our readers. The hotel’s ‘Grinch’ themed celebrations brought a smile to all of our faces after a year that was certainly a challenge for many.

Ask the Manager

Our Ask the Manager series has been a hit this year, claiming two of the top spots of 2021. We asked managers from hotels across the country all about their background and experience in the industry, with the following stories taking the crown:

A Visit to the Cooley Peninsula

We took a trip to the stunning Cooley Peninsula to explore all the best spots. We found some fantastic eateries, fabulous hotels and unmissable scenery. Throughout the year, we’ve had the pleasure of exploring some remarkable parts of the country, and the Cooley Peninsula was certainly one of our best highlights from 2021.

Travel2Ireland 2021 Tourism Award Winners

As we look back over the year, we can’t forget about the Travel2Ireland 2021 Tourism Awards – one of our biggest events of the year. We had the chance to celebrate some of the amazing suppliers who have made this year so memorable for the travel industry.

A huge thank you to all of our readers for supporting us through 2021. Here’s to a brand new year – we can’t wait to find out what’s to come!
