Ireland is one of my most favorite places in the world. Something about Ireland makes me think of a majestic place and you can just imagine all of the beautiful green nature life. Ireland is home to hundreds of beautiful castles that are years and years old and they are beautiful sights to see. All are unique in their own way and have a fantastic historical story behind them. Today I am going to be sharing with you a few of the most beautiful, in my opinion, and most popular castles that you can visit and learn all about on your trip to Ireland. We hope that you enjoy this Beautiful Castles in Ireland post.

Beautiful Castles in Ireland

1. Ashford Castle

Ashford Castle is a beautiful castle (we stayed there when Pierce Brosnan got married in 2001) that you can actually have the pleasure of staying in because this almost 800 year old castle has now been converted into a luxury, 5 Star hotel and it is absolutely to die for. Regardless of whether you want to splurge on staying in the beautiful Ashford Castle for your vacation or not, simply dropping by to check out the spectacular structure is well worth the visit.

The Enniskillen Castle was used as a fort and military barracks years ago back in the 17th Century but today it is the home to two different museums the Fermanagh County Museum and the Inniskillings Museum in which you can visit and experience Irish culture.

3. Ross Castle

This one is a little spooky! Ross Castle is said to be one of the most haunted places in Ireland due to a young woman dying there years ago. It is said that she haunts the castle and you can experience the haunting first hand because this castle is now a bed and breakfast that you can stay at and see for yourself.

4. Crom Estate

Crom Estate is huge and absolutely beautiful. It was worked on by the same architect that helped to design Buckingham Palace, how cool is that?! This one is a pretty cool one to see because it is actually the set a UK Show on BBC called Blandings so you are able to see an actual Tv Show Set when visiting this one!

5. Dunluce Castle

Dunluce Castle might just be one of my favorites solely because it is absolutely stunning and truly takes your breath away. This castle is surrounded by the rushing waves of the Ocean on three of its sides and that just makes it that much more beautiful. You can take a guided tour around the castle and you MUST see the sunset over the ocean when visiting this gorgeous sight.

6. Waterford Castle

Waterford Castle Hotel & Golf Resort, on a 310-acre Private Island, is a jewel in Ireland's Ancient East. The historic 16th Century luxury Waterford Castle hotel offers just nineteen bedrooms, the Award-winning, critically acclaimed in the Michelin Guide Munster Room Restaurant, Fitzgerald Bar housing the finest Irish whiskey collection and is located just ten minutes from Waterford City, and ninety minutes from Dublin and Cork airport.

Ireland is filled with hundreds of beautiful castles but these are just a few of the ones that I think may be the most beautiful around. It is truly awesome that are you are able to fully experience a lot of these castles whether it be touring them or even staying in them for your vacation. These castles have so much history and are a one of a kind experience you will not want to miss out on. We hope that you loved this Beautiful Castles in Ireland post.
