With the magic of Christmas a distant memory, we need something exciting to look forward to, to get us through the dark January days. We can’t think of anything better than celebrating a tough year by marking the most romantic day of the year with your loved one.
This Valentine’s Day, treat the one you love with something special to remember the good times of 2020 and the better times in 2021. Whether they love to be spoiled with jewellery and gifts, or you want to create some more memories together, read our Valentine’s Gift Guide for inspiration and get ready for the most romantic day of the year!

The Gift of Experience

We’re coming into 2021 with a lot of uncertainty, much like we were last year. It’s hard to gauge when the best time is for planning holidays and events. Usually, we would say the best Valentine gift would be an experience to enjoy together but that isn’t possible just yet.
The best way to give your other half something fun to look forward to together is to give them a voucher for a local business, hotel or experience that you can enjoy together at a later date. We love the idea of promising your loved one a visit to their favourite restaurant, cinema or a night away in luxury accommodations. Best of all, when you buy a voucher, you are helping to support a local business through tough times.
You can buy PREM Hospitality vouchers on our website, which can be used in any of our properties, at home or in the UK, The Netherlands, or Belgium for up to five years from purchase. You can use your voucher to pay for accommodation in Dublin for an exciting city break, a weekend of golfing in the scenic Tulfarris Golf Club or some world-class dining in Cahernane House Hotels in house restaurant.

A Gift They Will Treasure Forever

Nothing says romance quite like a piece of jewellery, bought or made specifically for your significant other. Jewellery lasts forever and is a perfect representation of your undying love or a way to mark a new beginning together.
This year, make sure to support local jewellers and goldsmiths, working together to choose a piece that captures this special occasion. We’re not just talking about that ring either. Most jewellers carry a wide range of items, from watches and bracelets to earrings and cufflinks.
Visit a neighbour of ours, the family-run Bridge Jewellers for expert advice on buying, remodelling, or repairing that special piece.

Celebrate at Home

At the moment, we don’t know what Valentine’s Day will look like this year so it’s best to cover all bases. Instead of treating your other half to a meal in a fancy restaurant, why not take advantage of how some of Dublin’s best restaurants have adapted to the restrictions and enjoy a finish-at-home meal.
These meals are 90% prepared in the restaurant and finished & garnished by you at home. Many of the cities most popular eateries are offering these boxes, from filling burritos to luxurious fine dining. We love the idea of our guests enjoying a 5-star meal in the comfort of our suites and are happy to accept and deliver any meals that arrive for you. It’s the perfect, unusual gift for an unusual year.

Self-Care in 2021

Giving someone the tools they need to look after themselves from the inside out is a great gift to give at any time of the year. For some, self-care means enjoying a spa treatment in a 5-star hotel, for others it’s having an hour to themselves to enjoy a hot bath at home.
Self-care means something different to everyone; journaling, exercising, crafting, exploring, pampering are all ways we give our mind a break. Find out what helps your other half relax and incorporate that into their Valentines present. It might be a bunch of their favourite blooms, a gift set from their favourite spa or a new journal or diary so they can order their thoughts.
