Select a holiday cottage in Ireland according to the facilities it offers

Booking a holiday cottage in Ireland with the right kinds of facilities adds considerable pleasure to a holiday. There are holidaymakers who start the day with a real cup of percolated coffee and need that cottage that has a coffee machine to allow them to enjoy their early morning pleasure. One of the great things about self-catering holidays is that you can easily sit and relax, and drink as much as you want because it is all under your personal control.

Or, it could be a facility that you do not have at home but would love to have use of on holiday, such as a swimming pool, sauna or hot tub. All of these things add to the general fun.
