The best people in the world are the Irish-Scots.
So it’s something of a surprise that nobody has had the smart idea to link the two in a twin holiday. Until now.
The Westbury Hotel in Dublin and Gleneagles in Perthshire are teaming up under the title of ‘From Capital to Countryside’.
This fabulous offer is a two-night stay in a Luxury Suite at The Westbury which is nestled between Trinity College and St Stephen’s Green.
You will then fly over to Edinburgh spend three nights in the Whisky Suites the Gleneagles.
The Dublin leg
You’ll have a choice of culinary or culture.
If you’re a foodie it’s the three-hour Fab Food Trail.
Where a guide will take you around the best places to experience Irish cuisine.
You like a walk rather than a sea?
Then you can pick the walking tour which takes in the top tourist sites… and the hidden gems.
And, of course, you’ll be wined and dined at night, at the hotel’s signature restaurant WILDE.
The Scottish leg
You’ll know Gleneagles from the golf, the Ryder Cup was held here in 2014.
And this is your chance to experience it for yourself.
Gleneagles is an 850-acre estate and you’ll get the best views while lying back in the most sumptuous of suites.
Henry is your guide around the manor, and none better. He is only Gleneagles’ beloved labrador.
There is access to the Gleneagles’ Playground Planner VIP concierge service.
They will coordinate outdoor pursuits such as clay shooting, archery and falconry.
With a hunger on you by now it’s onto dinner at the new Strathearn Restaurant.
It starts from €7,080 it is a special occasion treat, but you deserve it. To book the offer call (00353) 1 679 1122.

This is a sure fire winner… remember what happened the last time Ireland and Scotland hooked up with Gleneagles on the package.
