12 Most Luxurious Valentine’s Day Hotel Packages
Forget the typical box of chocolates and sparkly baubles this year, because hotels around the world are rolling out their red carpets of romance with these truly over-the-top luxurious Valentine’s Day hotel packages. (While some may be a bit too pricey for most of us, it’s always nice to dream!)
Pay homage to St. Valentine himself in Dublin

While Ireland is more commonly associated with St. Patrick, Dublin’s Whitefriar Street Carmelite Church is actually the final resting place of the remains of Valentinus, the patron saint of love. Each year, thousands of locals and visitors alike flock to the beautiful church to celebrate the Saint and his romantic holiday—Valentine’s Day. While the church might be the most romantic religious site to visit, Straffan House, a spectacular private residence nestled on 550 acres of idyllic Irish countryside, is our vote for the most romantic site in Ireland. The hotel is turning even the most unenthusiastic couples into hopeless romantics with their over-the-top “My Lovely Valentine” package that starts at $40,000 for two nights. What does that much cash get you? Couples can live like royalty, complete with a personal butler on hand 24/7 to draw rose petal baths, a private chef for all the romantic meals you desire, a personal driver and use of a vintage 1936 Jaguar, not to mention a private spa, indoor pool, and private movie theater. Ah, romance! Ireland is also one of our favorite romantic European honeymoon destinations thanks to rich history and lush landscapes.
