If you’re really intent on using the Christmas holidays to tick off your bucket list, why not go somewhere wild and remote that you’ve never been?
Brimming with rugged charm and unfolding coastal beauty, take your pick of idyllic spots to work from and spend Christmas in, along the Wild Atlantic Way – Donegal, Sligo, Mayo, Galway, Clare, Limerick, Kerry and Cork. With five National Parks, picturesque peninsulas, scores of sandy shorelines and superb local food, rent a cosy cottage along the 2,500km route to embrace life on Ireland’s edge.
Spend the break in Ireland’s Ancient East – Monaghan, Louth, Meath, Kildare, Wicklow, Laois, Carlow, Tipperary, Kilkenny, Waterford, Wexford and East Cork – and you can plan a host of festive day-trips. Marvel at 800-year old Hook Lighthouse, the stunning 5,000 year-old Newgrange megalithic tomb, the dramatic Rock of Cashel, not to mention your pick of ancient castles and stately homes. With rolling hills, cobbled streets and warm welcomes from the locals, working and staying in this region immerses you in fascinating history and heritage.
Take to tranquil waterways, roam lush forests, visit pretty villages, have a tipple in Ireland’s oldest pub and follow scenic walking trails this Christmas in Ireland’s Hidden Heartlands – Westmeath, Roscommon, Offaly, Longford, Leitrim and Tipperary. An inviting, calming part of the country, it’s the ideal place to relax and revive yourself as the year draws to a close.
While you’d think that parking yourself in a remote spot for the holidays means that co-working hubs are harder to find, it couldn’t be further from the truth! The breadth of Connected Hubs’ network means you’re never far from the exact facilities you need to get the job done.
