Give your loved one an experience gift this Christmas – here is our top pick

If you are struggling with gift ideas, why not give your loved one an experience gift this Christmas? Here is why Marlfield House is the perfect choice.


There has been a shift when it comes to Christmas gifting. 

We have realised that we have too many things. Christmas only adds more unnecessary ‘stuff’ to our already full homes. 

People across social media have been vocal in recent weeks about their choice to gift only experiences to their loved ones. The gift of an experience holds a feeling of excitement which lasts much longer than the initial buzz that comes from tearing the wrapping paper off a small box. 

Whether it’s cinema tickets, a sporting event or a short break away, experiences go hand in hand with anticipation. And this expectancy makes it all the more special. 

Marlfield House

Marlfield House, located in Gorey, Co Wexford, is one of the most celebrated luxury hotels in Ireland and would make the perfect Christmas present for a loved one – or as a treat to yourself.

The country house was first opened over 40 years ago and is set in 40 acres of manicured gardens which include a large kitchen garden, woodland walks and lawns. Only an hour away from Dublin, the boutique hotel is an oasis of charm and has a refreshingly relaxed and welcoming atmosphere. All of this means it is the perfect place to render the post-Christmas blues null and void. 

Luxury and fine dining

The rooms in the hotel breathe luxury. Each of the 19 bedrooms is richly decorated and elegantly furnished and many have peaceful views of the lake and surrounding garden.

Marlfield House has built a sterling reputation on its fine dining experience. Much of the food used is grown in the garden, while wild salmon, spring lamb, Bannow Bay oysters and Wexford mussels all feature on the menu.

The hotel offers guests three different dining options. The first is the Conservatory Restaurant with its classic french and Mediterranean mix, the second is the Duck Terrace which provides a casual dining experience and the third is Afternoon Tea which is the ultimate treat.

Gift vouchers

Why not give the gift of a luxury experience to someone close to you? Marlfield House has a range of Christmas gift vouchers available for everything from a stay at the hotel to dining at the restaurants or afternoon tea for two.

Make the move to experiences and give them something they won’t forget.
