I'd love to provide you with some suggestions for a real castle experience! :)
Have you looked at Clontarf Castle
in Dublin yet? It is a unique and luxurious 12th century castle hotel in the city with different types of bedrooms to choose from. Another 4 star castle hotel is the Fitzpatrick Castle Hotel
overlooking Dublin Bay, with bedrooms in a traditional castle style.
A little further away from the city, but easily reached by public transport
, is Wilton Castle
in County Wexford. Dating back to the 13th century, and complete with turreted towers, it really gives you an authentic castle feeling.
For more options, take a look at the other castles and historic houses
available around the island. I hope this was helpful, and please don't hesitate to reach out if you have any other questions!
