Dear Best Loved Member
Tuesday, 20th October 2009

As the air turns cooler, the days grow shorter and the autumn mists swathe the landscape, there is no better time to book that perfect autumn retreat from the stresses of life. This week we present an inspiring mixture of country house retreats and town and village favourites. These are the kind of places which invite serious relaxation - just cosy up to the open fire and enjoy.

From seaside hideaways to our superb selection of boutique hotels, you are sure to find the ideal place to stay, whatever your requirements may be. And with the excellent special offers listed below and more to be found on, you will also find that the price is right.

Also, I strongly encourage you to take a look at Best Loved's recent Discover Ireland newsletter. Full of great value specials, travel tips from locals, a calendar of events, plus a chance to win one of 10 Sony DVD Handycams, our exclusive Irish newsletter brings you the best from the Emerald Isle this autumn.

Best wishes,

Jeffrey Epstein
