A Staycation In Ireland

We live in such a beautiful country that staying in Ireland for our holidays with the family is actually quite a treat. In 2021 you’ve got the perfect excuse to explore those places you always meant to go – from Northern Ireland to the Ring of Kerry, the Wild Atlantic Way to the Sunny South East, Connemara to Dublin – pick somewhere, anywhere, and Lidl will be right there with you, with everything you and the gang need to make your staycation in Ireland one of your best holidays yet.


You’ll never run out of things to do in the capital. Theatres and bars and restaurants and festivals, great hotels and pretty good deals, tours and galleries and museums, walks and activities and parks will keep everyone happy. Here’s an insider tip: Lidl on Aungier Street has a preserved 1070 AD Hiberno-Norse structure!

Northern Ireland

It’s surprising how few people have explored the amazing playground on our doorstep. You will feel a part of the living history of Belfast in a Black Taxi Tour and then have your breath taken away as you drive along the stunning Causeway Coastline.

Wild Atlantic Way

Our newest tourist attraction takes in the ancient coastline of the West of Ireland, along 2,500km of spectacular coastline with white sands and glittering waves, idyllic towns and villages, great restaurants, old pubs and lovely hotels. Check out our middle aisles for Summer offers all season long.

Sunny South East

From Wicklow, the Garden of Ireland, into Wexford and on to Waterford, inland to Kilkenny and Carlow, the Sunny South East is packed with great beaches, huge national parks, cliff walks, mountain treks, adventure activities for the kids and too many castles, hotels and Air BnBs to mention.


You’ve probably always wanted to explore Connemara or to show it to the children and now is the perfect time to do it. The whole region, from the wild beaches to the Burren to the Connemara National Park, is one big playground, packed with stunning scenery and lots and lots of adventure activities.

The Shannon

Hiring a boat and cruising down the Shannon with friends or family has got to be on your bucket list. Why wait? Do it this year on the Shannon or Lough Erne, tying up at a different village each night, eating on board, spoiling yourselves at one of the many fantastic gastropubs, and enjoying a craft beer from any Lidl along the way.

West Cork

Go and explore West Cork, from Cobh to Bantry, through Kinsale and along the coast to Skibbereen, Baltimore and Schull. If you’ve got time, keep going on into Kerry and wow yourselves in some of the wildest, most beautiful scenery in the World.

North West

Go for a wander in the North West, explore Sligo and Donegal and discover the incredible coastline, rolling green fields, cliffs, mountains and long stretches of sandy beach at the end of winding country roads. If you thought Donegal was too far to go, think again: you’re on staycation, remember?

These are just some of the ways you can make your 2021 staycation in Ireland simply awesome. We’re here to help you, of course, with 209 stores on the island of Ireland (with more coming soon), all packed with everything you and the gang need to relax, explore, spoil and enjoy yourselves. Take a look at our Summer brochure for road trip essentials, sun care and some warm weather goodies.
