Volvo is giving one lucky family the chance to unlock one of Ireland’s hidden gems and stay at the luxurious five-star Cliff House Hotel in Waterford for two nights. And if that wasn’t enough, you’ll have the full use of a snazzy Volvo XC60 for two whole weeks! Find out how to enter below. 

Volvo has an epic competition for those looking to make a break away and discover some of Ireland’s hidden gems.

Explore what Co Waterford has to offer by staying in a Terrace Suite at the beautiful Cliff House Hotel which overlooks the stunning Ardmore Bay.

Hop on one of the bikes provided and enjoy a scenic cycle on the beautiful Waterford Greenway or the sleepy fishing village of Ardmore.

When you’ve worked up a bigger appetite, enjoy a three-course dinner in The Bar Restaurant back at the Cliff.

And to get you and the family there safely, Volvo are giving you the use of a Volvo XC60 for two weeks.

If this sounds like the perfect family staycation, all you have to do is visit Volvo Ireland’s Instagram page @volvocarsie and share your hidden gem with Volvo. Just post your #HiddenGem on Instagram by tagging @VolvoCarsie and using the hashtag #HiddenGem. At the end of the summer, Volvo will pick its favourite gem and the winner of the competition.
