Castle Hotels

by AlphaBlue

I will be traveling to Ireland in April '04 with my girlfriend and we'd like to stay at a castle at least one night while we're there. Could someone suggest a good one? We'll likely be traveling in the area south of a line from Dublin to Galway.

Thanks very much!

The Ballinalacken Castel Hotel is between Doolin and Lisdoonvarna.
It is a hotel that has a real, very well preserved castle on the grounds that belongs to the owner.
He will let you go in and explore, but you do not stay in the castle. but it is excellent repair and you can see what great stonemasons there were that made those castles.
We loved the hotel, it is right on the edge of the burren. The owner runs the bar, the daughter the front desk and the son in law the excellent kitchen
Room 16 is the fanciest room with a sun porch that overlooks the cliffs of Mohr, the burren and the Aran Islands. But our son had room 8 and it was fabulous too.

Dromoland and Adair Castles (both within an hour of Shannon airport) are very nice (but also expensive). We stayed at Dromoland last May and found that golf (they have their own course), bicycling, archery and other activities are included (the golf part makes the steep price a bit more reasonable).

If you are in county Kerry, the Cahernane House (a mannor house in Killarney) was very nice, especially if you have a room that faces the rear, overlooking Killarney National Park.

Check out the following websites

Both give very cool places to stay - and not always the most expensive. Forget about the castle - book into a lighthouse !!!

If price is not a factor.

Ashford Castle in Cong just north of Galway is gorgeous!

Carrageen Castle in Cahir is a castle and does give you the feel even though it was used as a gaol and the views from all the rooms are of the outer stone wall. This one is run as a B&B and the p[rices really are the same as most of the B&B's.

Travel Tips for Birr

Birr, place of astronomy history

by himalia11

Birr, in South Offaly, had been one of the destinations I absolutely wanted to go to during my visit of Ireland. Not because of the city itself, but because of the Science Centre and the Historic Telescope. I was happy I went there, we enjoyed our time at Birr Castle Demesne!
