When dreaming of vacationing in Ireland, we don't immediately imagine ourselves in a swanky boutique hotel. We imagine something more along the lines of family owned bed and breakfast (and there's certainly nothing wrong with that!). If there were ever a time we were wrong, it's now, and we actually couldn't be happier about it.
We absolutely love the idea of staying in a boutique hotel while visiting Ireland. What a great juxtaposition — touring old villages and drinking at pubs much older than us and then making our way back to our hotel with the modern white chesterfield sofa.
Each of these five Irish hotels is filled to the brim with color. Whether it's in the form of multiple accent colors, or literally filled from floor to ceiling with color &mdash they're all done spectacularly. Who would have thought that bright pink walls and furniture could somehow work with a swirling black and white carpet? It's obviously over the top and borderline ridiculous, but that's what makes it so successful and intriguing.
We can't ignore the amazing marriage of dark green walls and grey furniture with the pop of orange and purple. If that isn't success, we don't know what is.
