New Twincation and Causeway Coastal Food Tour Staycation packages from Hastings Hotels

A recent survey by Hastings Hotels revealed that three out of four people won’t be holidaying abroad this year, with a large majority (94%) opting for a staycation this summer.

To take the hard work out of planning a summer staycation, the Northern Ireland hotel group has launched two new staycation packages – the ‘Coast & City Twincation’ and the ‘Causeway Coastal Food Tour Staycation’.

Julie Hastings, Marketing Director of Hastings Hotels said: “Northern Ireland is blessed with lots of stunning scenery, coastal walks, beaches and attractions and we are encouraging people to take this opportunity to explore. To provide some inspiration, we’ve created a lovely selection of summer staycations including the Coast & City Twincation and the Causeway Coastal Food Tour Staycation to give people a nice taste of what is on offer.”
