IRELAND’S LUSH LANDSCAPES are at their best in the summer months, and what better way to explore the country than by hitting the road for a weekend break?

From thrilling hikes to mountain views to craggy coastlines, there’s plenty to see, and all you need to do is plan your route, hop in the car and go.

If getting away from it all for a weekend road trip sounds like exactly what you need, we’ve teamed up with Volkswagen to help.

We’re giving away a two-night weekend escape to the spectacular surrounds of Powerscourt Resort Hotel & Spa in Wicklow, plus the loan of an all-electric Volkswagen e-Golf to get you there and back in style.

What’s more, it’s the gorgeous e-Golf Executive Edition, meaning you’ll stand out with 17″ alloys and enjoy premium comfort, styling, and technology throughout your trip.

Feel the difference from the moment you sit behind the wheel of the e-Golf, with its powerful, nearly silent electric motor and seamless acceleration – plus a range of up to 230km from one charge, taking you wherever you need to go.

Use the hotel as your base to explore the county, taking in panoramic views of the Sugar Loaf, heading out for a thrilling hike – or simply spending some time exploring Powerscourt Estate itself, which earlier this week hosted Prince Charles and Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, on their royal visit to Ireland.

If you want to venture further afield, the e-Golf Executive Edition will help ensure you enjoy every moment on the road thanks to premium features including leather seats, a rearview camera, and keyless access.

During your stay, you’ll enjoy a three-course meal on both nights at the hotel’s Sika Restaurant, plus breakfast on both mornings.
