Ireland’s oldest inhabited castle is the very imposing 12th-century Kilkea Castle, in Kildare, near Dublin, and is now one of Ireland’s finest luxury hotels. It has an abundance of historical character and is surrounded by a 180-acre estate which includes some beautifully tended gardens, much wild parkland and woodland, and even its own 18-hole golf course. THE ACCOMMODATION: Kilkea has a broad range of accommodation options; rooms and suites in the castle itself, courtyard rooms in the old castle outbuildings, and separate lodges on the grounds of the estate, both B&B rooms and self-catering. There is also the option of hiring out the entire castle for exclusive use or a three-bedroom section of it. If you have a large group this will work out much cheaper than booking individually, but as demand for Kilkea is always high it should certainly be reserved well in advance. The castle bedrooms are the most historical in style, with the suites being particularly romantic, while the courtyard rooms and the lodges are more modern, though not excessively so and they too display much old-style elegance. Modern comforts and facilities are also in abundance though, it is a luxury hotel after all. PRICES: Check out READ MORE
