Start 2022 off on a positive note by booking a hotel break with the Flynn Hotel Collection in their January sale.

You’ll also be treated to an additional €22 food credit at the hotel during your stay, with lots of local food to choose from.

The sale runs until this coming Sunday, January 9. You can choose from the historic Imperial Hotel, The Newpark Hotel in Kilkenny or The Park Hotel, Dungarvan.

If you are looking for New Year's resolution inspiration Flynn Hotels has five ideas for meaningful resolutions that are easy to keep.

1. Be kind to yourself: Why not use the promise of a fresh year to be kind to yourself or someone who you think needs a boost. A great way to execute this type of resolution is to commit to dedicated me time. Carving out time on your calendar and booking in for self-care and wellness activities like an afternoon tea, spa treatments, or downtime with a book in a hotel lobby.

2. Local good food, general good mood: Many people will go on a health kick that fizzles out as fast as it starts. Instead why not simply resolve to simply eat well and savour the experiences of dinner prepared by the experts. Enjoying good quality local food that is locally sourced and expertly prepared is a goal that you will want to stick to. For exemplary dining experiences in the New Year why not try Lafayette’s, Sketch or Thyme at 76 on the Mall Restaurant at the Imperial Hotel, The Poets Corner or Town Hall Bistro at the Old Ground Hotel, Scotts Bar and Brasserie or Gullivers Restaurant at the Newpark Hotel or the Meladon Bar and Bistro at the Dungarvan Park Hotel.

3. Go green and seek out sustainable stays: For 2022 why not resolve to be more eco-friendly and sustainable in how you shop, stay, eat, drink and travel. All 4 properties in the Flynn Hotel Collection operate to a sustainability charter which includes buying local, supporting smaller businesses and local farmers; supporting local charities; maintaining a green procurement policy to soften their impact on the environment, and providing sustainable training for their team. The Imperial Hotel in Cork recently achieved an Ecolabel for their efforts!

4. Make memories and share experiences: It is said that the greatest gift you can give someone is your time. Put a fresh focus in 2022 on making memories. Whether it’s spending time with someone special on a romantic couple break to the Old Ground Hotel Ennis or Imperial Hotel Cork or making treasured family memories on a getaway at The Park Hotel Dungarvan or Newpark Hotel Kilkenny.

5. Appreciate what is on your doorstep: If anything positive is to be taken from the travel restrictions over the last two years it might be the renewed interest in staycations which has reminded people to explore our beautiful country and appreciate the culture, history, heritage, landscapes, and experiences that are on our doorstep.

The Flynn Hotel Collection January sale and ends on Sunday next, January 9.
