Kinnitty Castle Hotel
In the very heart of Ireland, equidistant from Galway and Dublin, Kinnitty Castle Hotel sits within 650 acres (263ha) of parkland. It’s flanked by the picturesque Slieve Bloom Mountains and the village of Kinnitty, where you can rub shoulders with locals at Giltraps Pub. At night, hunker down in an individually styled room within this gothic castle. Many suites still retain the castle’s original 13th-century features, including stone walls.
