Shamrock Accommodation – Celtic Theme (Ireland)

The incredible thing about Ireland is that it is so rich in history and culture and can boast having been the home for various civilisation’s  going back thousands of years.

Many of the Celtic symbols and signs, for example, played a very important and powerful role in every way of life of the Celts – and are still very much alive in modern day Ireland.

The Celts lived in Ireland and Western Europe from about 500BC to 400 AD – were of the Iron age and lived in small villages led by warrior chiefs.

In keeping with the Irish identity, we have named all our rooms after Celtic symbols and signs. When you login into any of the rooms a short explanation of the meaning of the symbol / sign is given.
