Planning for your big day? 

Forget seating plans, catering and photographers, everyone knows the most important thing about getting married is what you do afterwards – the honeymoon. 

And while you can’t go wrong with Paris or Rome, why not check out these few alternative honeymoon destinations for something a bit different?

Lake Hotel Killarney

It’s a fact we in Ireland often forget, but our stunning green isle is actually the perfect place for a romantic getaway. 

Beautiful scenery, country retreats, top-class spas, great food, Ireland’s got all you need. For something a bit different, try a stay at the luxurious Lake Hotel in Killarney – it’s family-run, it’s based in a 12th-century castle and the views of the surrounding mountains are UNREEEEAL.

Jamaica is a surprise spot for amazing luxury all-inclusive resort honeymoons, with its exotic white beaches and beautiful Caribbean water. 

Jamaica is a real mix of wild nature and cultivated gardens. Go on horse-rides in the mountains, explore tropical gardens, or just hang out and feast on the amazing food and drink.

Ko Samui, Thailand

Ko Samui is a large island in Thailand as popular with backpackers as it is with newlyweds. 

The centre of the island is a tropical jungle, ringed with endless beaches, and the whole makes simply the most incredible scenery. Sunset on this island is a sight not to be missed.

Safari, Africa

Looking for something other than lazing around on beaches for your honeymoon? How about an African safari – explore the wildlife of this enormous, varied continent with tailor-made travel packages for each season and area of interest. 

It’s also the perfect way to see a number of countries in one trip, without needing to worry about booking accommodation and transport all the way through. The Safari Expert is a Dublin-based company that can sort you out with a trip you’ll never forget.

Cappadocia, Turkey

The best word to describe Turkey’s Cappadocia is ‘unique’. Volcanic eruptions in the past have made a landscape that is as amazing as it is beautiful – see the ‘fairy chimneys’, hike along sweeping hills and valleys, visit temples hewn from the rock itself, or explore underground cities. Or view it all from above in a hot air balloon. 

These famed rock formations have since been converted into boutique hotels, perfect for an utterly brilliant honeymoon experience. Check out the Turkish Culture & Tourism Officeto find out more.

Galešnjak, Zadar, Croatia

Zadar is a Mediterranean heaven, a city at the centre of the the Croatian region of the same name. No matter what kind of honeymoon you are looking for, Zadar has it.

There’s rich culture in the city and an island for all tastes whether history, beaches or watersports. But one thing you simply can’t miss on your honeymoon, is Galešnjak, a naturally heart-shaped island
