Irish Castle Vacations
Irish castle vacations are very popular with overseas visitors to Ireland. Here in Ireland we have a wealth of castles to visit and explore. Some estimates suggest that there are over 30,000 castles dotting the Irish countryside. The vast majority of these castles are in various stages of ruin, with many of them having been built in medieval times. While a lot of the castles are in ruins, many of them have been lovingly restored to their former glory.
Many of the restored castles have been renovated to the highest standard and have become some of the most popular and sought-after holiday accommodations in Ireland. Here at Love Irish Tours, Irish castle vacations are some of our most popular requests. Most of our itineraries for self-drive tours of Ireland and private escorted tours of Ireland include at least one night in a castle. Indeed, a lot of our customers request additional nights in Irish castles to be added to their itineraries. Such is the popularity of our castle accommodations that our returning customers always have Irish castle vacations at the top of their wishlists!
We have top quality castle stays all around the country. Some of our most popular accommodations include Lough Eske Castle in Donegal, Kinnitty Castle in Offaly, and Abbeyglen Castle in Galway.
Another of our most popular requests is Ashford Castle, in County Mayo. Ashford Castle won the prestigious Virtuoso Hotel of the Year for 2015 and it is not difficult to see why. Staying here is an amazing experience and one that you will never forget! Dating back to 1228, the castle sits on 350 acres of ancient woodland on the shores of Lough Corrib. This 5* accommodation is the definition of luxury and once you stay here you won’t want to leave!
Some other popular castles on our itineraries include Cabra Castle, in Cavan, Kilronan Castle, in Roscommon and Waterford Castle.
We have lots of other castles available on our itineraries, to learn more about them contact us at Love Irish Tours. We can customize any tour to include an Irish castle stay. If you would like to add an Irish castle stay to your itinerary contact us and we will do the rest!
