Pet Friendly Hotels where you can use the Go Anywhere Gift Card

Posted on: Fri, 24 September, 2021

The Ultimate List of Pet-Friendly Hotels where you can use your Go Anywhere Gift Card



Every pet owner knows that pets are family, so it is the perfect time to treat your pet-loving family, friends, loyal employees or clients with a pet-friendly Christmas gift. The Go Anywhere Gift Card has the best offering of pet-friendly hotels, country houses and guest houses across Ireland. 


When travelling with a pet, it is better to plan ahead well in advance to ensure you or the person you gift the Go Anywhere card have a stress-free pet-friendly holiday, weekend break and pet-friendly staycation. Whether it is the love of our pets or perhaps the lack of dog sitters (or kennels) available  a well planned trip, along with the right dog friendly hotel can provide an unforgettable trip. Whatever the reason pet friendly holidays are here to stay with recent reports highlighting that pet-friendly accommodation is now one of the most highest sought after and Ireland is becoming an increasingly dog-friendly nation, however this means that pet-friendly hotels and pet-friendly rooms are now booking out first especially in summer months and weekend dates. 


So, for this weeks #TravelTuesday blog post, we have compiled a list of dog-friendly hotels in various locations across the country where you can stay  using the Go Anywhere Gift Card. Note; that you can search all the Pet-friendly hotels at irelandhotels.com by typing “pet friendly” as the keyword in the search bar in each county page on Irelandhotels.com.

Remember, the Irelandhotels.com Go Anywhere Gift Card can be used to pay the total or part of the balance for a stay in Ireland’s top hotels. So, it really is the ideal pet-friendly gift this Christmas, birthdays, anniversaries or even Valentines Day. 


Our first #TravelTuesday tip: Make your bookings using your Go Anywhere Gift Card well in advance to avoid disappointment as pet-friendly rooms and accommodation sell out quickly always book directly on the hotels' website or over the phone. Always check directly with the hotels regarding their latest pet policy so you are fully up to date and you and your pet can be prepared for a great pet-furry and pet-friendly staycation.  

Bellinter House, Co. Meath

Bellinter House in the historically rich county of Meath provides pet accommodation in their Stable and Lean-To rooms. While some areas of the main hotel are off limits for your pooch, all outdoor areas including dining areas are welcoming plus you are free to roam the grounds with your four legged friend. 



BrookLodge & Macreddin Village, Co. Wicklow

The perfect hotel for your dog to make some new friends. Not only is Brooklodge & Macreddin Village a pet friendly hotel, but even better than that is they have their own resident canines. Oscar and George are as important as any member of staff in this Wicklow hotel, however they may be more welcoming to a scratch behind the ear than some of their two legged colleagues. 


Castle Leslie Estate, Co. Monaghan

There isn’t too much you could do to improve a break away in the luxurious Castle Leslie Estate….unless of course you can bring your dog! Castle Leslie Estate allow dogs (unfortunately not cats) in their self catering accommodation, The Old Stable Mews. 

Castlemartyr Resort, Cork

The 2019 winner of the “Best Pet Friendly Hotel” in Ireland really says it all. Dogs up to the size of a standard labrador are allowed. Your dog will be welcomed with their very own gift pack on arrival plus there are also discount avail for groomers, dog walkers, dog sitters and veterinarians if required. 


Cork's Vienna Woods Hotel & Villas, Co Cork

Corks Vienna Woods in Glanmire are happy to welcome one small dog on your stay (22lbs or no longer than 16 inchs). Pet friendly rooms are restricted (SO BOOK EARLY!!!)and self catering accommodation provides outdoor kennels. 


Dromhall Hotel, Co. Kerry

“We love dogs here” is the message you get from the team in Dromhall Hotel in Killarney. The hotel welcomes small to medium sized dogs, with a limit to one per room and are not allowed in public areas such as the restaurant or bar. With Killarney National Park a short distance away we don’t think your dog will be spending much time indoors.


Dromoland Castle, Co. Clare

A castle fit for a canine… Earlier this year we were delighted to hear Dromoland Castle  would be welcoming dogs from summer 2020. While certain areas may be off limits to your dog,  the team will provide you with doggy bed, towels, water bowl, door mat, poop scoop bags and water. 


Dylan Hotel, Dublin

Pet friendly hotels in Dublin are not in abundance, however the stylish Dylan Hotel on Dublin's South Side is open to dogs under 20kgs, pet friendly rooms are limited though.


O'Shea's Hotel Strand Street, Co. Waterford

This dog friendly hotel is situated right next to Tramore Beach, your dog will love their stay in O’Shea’s Hotel although they may have you reaching for their lead and beach towel on more than one occasion.


If we haven't made it clear enough, booking early is a must when bringing your dog on a hotel stay. We advise you let the hotel know you plan on bringing your pooch but also each hotel will have their own dog policy which we advise you read. In most cases pet friendly rooms are limited, some require and extra charge while some have no additional fee.
