7. Castle stays
Who wouldn’t love to be king or queen of their own castle? Luxurious castles are something we know a thing or two about, here in Ireland. Treat yourself to opulent interiors, wonderful food, warm and welcoming hosts and centuries of history. Inside those ancient stone walls, expect staggering architecture, hidden rooms, incredible stories of battles, betrayals and unrequited love – oh, and perhaps a friendly ghost or two. Outdoors? Pull on your boots and try out some horse-riding, cracking golf courses and spectacular walks around immaculate gardens and estates.
