Cheap hotels from CheaperThanHotels

My mother and sister are planning to tour the Republic of Ireland and the United Kingdom. To help them plan their tour, I have searched the internet for the places worth visiting, their attractions and the things to be done there.

First on the list is Dublin, the capital of Ireland and its largest city.

  • Guinness Storehouse. It is Ireland’s number one visitor attraction. It tells visitors the dramatic story of the 250 year history of Guinness.
  • Kilmainham Gaol. Built in 1792 and closed in 1924, it is Ireland’s most famous disused prison.
  • Dublin Castle. It was built between 1208 and 1220, and was the center of English power in Ireland for more than seven centuries until it was taken of by the Irish Free State in 1922. This complex represents some of the oldest surviving architecture in the city

Second on the list is Cardiff, the capital city and the largest city of Wales.

  • Cardiff Castle. It is one of Wale’s leading tourist attractions
  • Millenium Stadium. It is the best rugby stadium in the world.
  • Llandaff Cathedral. The seat of the Bishop of Llandaff

My sister suggested Newcastle, a city in Tyne and Wear, England

  • St. James Park. The home of the Newcastle United Football Club.
  • The Quayside. It is a cultural and arts center, with galleries and art sculptures.
  • Bridges. The city is known for its bridges: the Tyne Bridge, the High Bridge, Gateshead Millenium Bridge and the Swing Bridge.

My mother said she wants to go to Leeds, a city in West Yorkshire, England.

  • Royal Armouries Museum. The museum contains an exhibit of medieval armor and weapons displaying the way of life among nobles and notables of the period.
  • Temple Newsam. It features a Home Farm with many rare farm animals.
  • Thackray Medical Museum. It exhibits medical and surgical techniques from the 19th Century up to today.

To make their tour a perfect one, I told them to check CheaperThanHotels, where they could get cheap hotels in Dublin, Cardiff, Newcastle, and Leeds. CheaperThanHotels offers discounts with more than 35,000 deals on 365 days either at the last minute or all year.

To my mother and sister, I am wishing you a “Safe and Happy Trip!”
