Stay and play. Cozy up with your Valentine this weekend (or anytime through February) to enjoy a close-to-home retreat. Eight Dublin hotels have designed their versions of a memorable Romantic Getaway. Build your own package online, selecting luxurious inclusions ranging from champagne and chocolates to roses and bathrobes. Then enjoy a complimentary breakfast and late check out. Packages start at just $104—make for an affordable and unforgettable getaway.
Take Time to Wine, Dine (and Shine). Who can resist being courted over a lovely lunch or dinner? But nothing kills your romantic efforts more than a packed, noisy restaurant and a hefty bill. We’re proposing some off-the-beaten-path establishments that are whipping up some specials just for their Valentine’s guests—with prices that will make Cupid’s harp sing.
Treats for your Sweet. There is chocolate, then there are Historic Dublin’s famous Sweet Treats.
Nifty Gifts. So, if you’re going for the gift rather than (or in addition to) the night out—the rules are the same: it’s the unique thought that counts.
- Ha’penny Bridge Imports of Ireland is featuring Claddagh and My Soul Mate rings, as well as the Valentine bead for Tara's Diary bracelets. Take advantage of 25% off selected jewelry. Brand new arrivals include the Belleek 2010 Event Piece as well as divine imports from—you guessed it—Ireland. If jewelry is not her thing, wrap her in a red or pink cape or sweater or consider a woolen throw to warm her heart. Other inventive ideas? Toasting flutes and Irish fragrances.
- Whole Foods has some great deals for natural Valentines: including two dozen roses for $19.99/ea and packages (including flowers, dinner and more) for $50, $75 and $100.
Hopefully, these ideas will help to make your Valentine's Day memorable.
