John Alcock and Arthur Whitten Brown could have stayed in on June 14, 1919. Instead, they hopped into a modified bomber and started the world's first non-stop transatlantic flight. Put down your cuppa and channel the heroes with your own trip worth remembering: a visit to historic Clifden, Connemara. Home to beaches and countryside, shopping and gourmet cuisine, the town is also the site of the pioneers' epic landing. So what are you waiting for? Get on board with this week's Escape to The Alcock and Brown Hotel.

Allow me to speak plane: you and your co-pilot will stay overnight at the simply elegant hotel for €59 (up to a €120 value). Alternatively, extend your flight of fancy with the same package for two nights for €119 (up to a €255 value). Either way, you'll lay your aviator helmets and goggles in a superior room complete with understated décor, en suite, TV, and tea- and coffee-making facilities— while those staying two nights will also receive a bottle of wine.

You'll fly through your inclusive breakfast at the hotel, which you'll choose from the likes of full Irish and Continental. Later, touch down at The Gallery Restaurant—so-called because it's set within the hotel's own art gallery, featuring scenic landscapes by local artists—and flyboys and girls staying for one night will receive a bottle of wine when they take a two-course meal, while those staying for two nights will make the most of their €20 dining credit.

If you're staying for two nights, late checkout means there's no need to takeoff until after 1 p.m. However long you stay though, you won't want to miss all the local activities that are worthy of your own history books: think walking along the beach or trekking in the mountains, fishing, sea angling, or scuba diving, championship golf or horse-riding, visiting landing site Derrygimlagh Bog or the nearby National Park, or discovering the many manor houses and castles with their own gripping tales of derring-do.

This Escape is for two people.

  • "Victorian houses and church spires rise on the horizon as you approach the town from the coast road, and the surrounding countryside offers walks through woods and above the shoreline."
