Many holiday makers stay in a cottage by a lake when they are on a fishing holiday. They can also swim and try their hand at sailing at many destinations.

Holiday cottages are available in most major tourist spots and people can stay in a country cottage in great comfort. Holiday cottages have lots of advantages which will attract visitors to them. One of the major advantages of a holiday cottage is the cheap rate of accommodation. Usually holiday cottages are available at a cheaper rate when compared to similar type of rental accommodation.

Holiday cottages are really good source of accommodation for all people who like to visit certain tourist places. Tourism is a seasonal program and therefore the rush of visitors towards various tourist places will be very high at the peak season. The peak season will vary from country to country depending on their climate.

The rate for holiday cottages will differ from different seasons as the holiday cottage owners will charge a higher rate in the peak season and the rate for holiday cottages will be lower at other times of the year. In the peak season it can be more difficult to get a holiday cottage because of the influx of tourists on their vacations during these periods.

On line booking of holiday cottages has become very much popular in today's developed society as the internet has become very much established.

The most important thing to do when travelling to Ireland is Plan Ahead.

First decide on the areas you would like to visit and sights you want to see. Then you need to organise travel and accommodation. If you are staying in the cities like Dublin or Galway you will not need a car as the public transport system is quite good. If you plan to travel outside the main cities a Rental Car is a must as the public transport system in rural areas is a nightmare.

Second you need to decide on the type of accommodation you need. B&B's are very popular but like anything you can save a lot of money by researching the area and finding out what the local rates are. Booking in advance is also advisable during the main season. Another good option especially if you are travelling in a group is to rent a Vacation Home or "Self Catering Holiday Home". If you chose a central location you can use it as a base while exploring the surrounding area. A good tip is to find a Holiday Home somewhere on the West / North West coast so you can drive up to Donegal or down through Mayo. One lovely little seaside village I found on my travels is Enniscrone also spelt Inishcrone.

My biggest tip to anyone travelling to Ireland is Get Out Of The Cities and visit the true Ireland. Planning ahead is important but don't be afraid to get up early in the morning, jump into your car and head off exploring. You will be amazed at what you find.
