If you’re planning a clandestine weekend away with your beau, bff or you’re treating yourself, we have two perfect spots. For the loved-up month of February, you and a special someone can steal away at either of these two seashore destinations and both are offering extra special prices, just for our readers.

The Strand Inn, Waterford
Of all the hotels in Ireland, this is my favourite? there, I said it. It’s neither the most design-focussed, nor luxurious, but what it lacks in high-octane glamour it absolutely makes up for in charm, hospitality and cuisine. The Strand Inn overlooks a small harbour, that can, on any given day, boast views of old sailing boats or folks fishing for plaice and mussels.The laid-back vibes at?The Strand Inn spell?the kind of old Irish, family holiday charm, that has all too sadly disappeared in many places, in favour of superficial design. And the food is the work of a thoughtful chef: Duncannon mussels with a creamy black bean sauce; wild mushroom linguini or spicy seafood bouillabaisse. If that isn’t enough of a reason to win you over, the comfy bedrooms with sounds of the seashore lapping and lulling you into a deep sleep, certainly will. Prices start from €120 per night

The Cliff House Hotel, Waterford
The Cliff House hotel is a spectacular fortress of luxury, which clings to the sea-drenched rock edge, overlooking Ardmore bay. With floor-to-ceiling windows, a luxury spa, concierge service and Michelin-starred restaurant to boot, it’s easy to see why The Cliff House hotel is one of Ireland’s favourite weekend getaways. If escaping for the weekend is on the cards, make sure to include a stop off at local restaurant White Horses – this humble little caf? packs a punch and is definitely worth a visit, especially if much fancy-fare was consumed the night before. Don’t let the laidback vibe of this family-run business mislead you, the food is worthy of its own accolade.?Prices at the Cliff House start from €180 per night
