Dream vacations don't come along every day, but if you've ever dreamed of Ireland, Great Value Vacations' Luxury Castles of Ireland can make it all come true - and at fantastic price!
Your trip begins with arrival into Dublin, and from there, you'll make the short drive to lovely Co. Meath, just to the northwest of Dublin airport, where you will spend the first night of your trip in the luxury of the 4-star Dunboyne Castle Hotel. While there, you might choose to relax at the SEOID Spa, reveling in the tranquility of the hydrotherapy pool after a soothing massage - or round out your evening with dinner in one of the three magnificent restaurants on the property.
Traveling south - with perhaps a stop in Galway for lunch and to see the sights - your destination is County Clare and the 5-star Dromoland Castle. And when we say 5-star we mean 5-star! This lovely castle retains its medieval feel while combining the best in modern comforts. Enjoy and be able to brag to all your family and friends about spending a night where famous actors, politicians and royalty have stayed!
The last stop on your tour is Fitzpatrick Castle, just south of Dublin City on the coast in the village of Killiney. Again, here the staff are friendly and attentive, making sure your stay is relaxing in every way. Each room is uniquely decorated, with nods to contemporary comfort and castle traditions. Dining here is delicious and served with a casual elegance...and the views across the coastline as you gaze out from the castle are breathtaking, making this a memorable way to end your dream vacation.
