As November moves swiftly into December, the glorious shining light of the festive season will brighten up our lives for the next six weeks.
For some it is the best time of year; they revel in buying Christmas presents. For others, the festive period is a pain in the proverbial as they struggle to buy a present. Fortunately the solution has been provided by the Irish Hotels Federation (IHF ) - the Go Anywhere Gift Card - Ireland's ultimate hotel gift card.
With travel restrictions around the globe likely to be in place well into 2021, exploring our own beautiful country and indeed, our own stunning county will be the most accessible way to get our adventure kicks in and that is where the Go Anywhere Gift Card is the perfect present this Christmas.
Supported by Fáilte Ireland and available via Irelandhotels.com, the gift card enables the holder to stay at a vast number of hotels throughout Galway city and county including the Glenlo Abbey Hotel, Harbour Hotel, Menlo Park Hotel, and the Galmont Hotel & Spa.
The IHF released figures last month that with the imposition of lockdown, more than one million hotel bedrooms have been lost from this time last year. So while the present of a Go Anywhere Gift Card is one which will provide the lucky recipient a memorable holiday experience and the ability to discover the very best of what Ireland has to offer, it will also provide crucial support to local hotels and jobs which have closed their doors to aid the national effort in suppressing the virus.
IHF president Elaina Fitzgerald Kane said the Go Anywhere Gift Card was a great gift to brighten up anyone's day. She said; “Irish hotels and guesthouses excel at creating truly memorable experiences for our guests, and that’s why we’re very excited to be launching this gift card today – bringing together hundreds of our member hotels and guesthouses to create a fantastic and really flexible gift experience.
"As a nation we are very generous when it comes to giving gifts and what better way to brighten up someone’s day than a gift that opens up so many options for a break away in Ireland. And of course, it’s a great way to support Irish tourism and local businesses.”
The Go Anywhere Gift Card can be purchased online and can be delivered electronically or in a special gift box. The gift card also facilitates the receiver booking directly with the hotel or guesthouse, which can have additional benefits such as special offers and reduced prices not available through third party sites.
The gift card can be purchased from www.Irelandhotels.com in denominations of €50 to €1,000, and can be redeemed at any of the hundreds of participating hotels and guesthouses across Ireland, which are all listed on the website.
