Groupon
With winter fast approaching, Christmas markets are a festive way to enjoy the coldest season of the year.

Swilling mulled wine and eating rich, hearty food is hard not to enjoy, so why not head to a German Christmas market, have the craic, and get some Christmas presents bought while you’re at it.

Groupon are offering deals to Munich, Berlin or Frankfurt, with stays for one or two nights, with flights included for €209 per person.

Read more about that deal, and potentially book it, here: http://www.groupon.ie/deals/getaways/ga-clear-sky-holidays-ie-10/29588683?nlp=&CID=IE_CRM_1_0_0_316&a=2524

If you want to take a short break a little closer to home then Groupon can cater for that also. Two nights for two with breakfast and dinner at Ballyliffin Hotel, Co Donegal, is an absolute bargain at just €119, which represents a 60% saving.

The hotel is located on the Irish coastal peninsula of Inishowen and is a real get-away-from-it-all destination.
