Built in the 16th century and finished in 1835, Dromoland Castle’s gothic architecture caught my eye as places to stay. I later learned that they had won a Michelin star in 1995 and many celebrities had stayed there, from Nelson Mandela to Johnny Cash, from Rey Juan Carlos I to Muhammed Ali.
While it’s not as modernized as Ashford Castle, it was equally as beautiful, relaxing and impressive.. and better yet, more affordable!
When we think of Ireland, we tend to think of good beer, the witty and happy locals, and the lush green landscape with castles, like something out of a fairy tale. And, if you know me, you’ll know that I love castles with their charming medieval architecture and breathtaking gardens. For my birthday and babymoon, my husband and I were treated to stay at some of the best castles in Ireland. Thus our grand adventure begins with Ashford Castle, a stunning and majestic place where magical meets luxury.
