Drive through Ireland while sleeping in castles

Ireland's packed with many beautiful things: culture, history, folklore, potatoes whiskey. So when you go there, why stay in some uninspired hotel chain when you could spend your nights sleeping in an actual castle? The answer is you wouldn't, because you're now aware that Go-Today has their Irish Castle Experience: a six-night road trip of prosperity through The Emerald Isle.

The first stop's Cabra Castle, which dates back to the 17th century. It's now a luxury hotel adorned in authentic medieval-style furnishings (well, luxurious medieval-style furnishings) within the ancient stone walls. And once you tire of luxury castle living, hop in your car to check out...

... the nearby Megalithic Passage Tomb at Newgrange. Built circa 3200 BC, the behemoth temple and tombs are older than Stonehenge (where the demons dwell) and the Pyramid of Giza.

You'll spend two nights at the Abbeyglen Castle Hotel, built in 1832 and within walking distance to the bustling village of Clifden. Prepare to bustle.

You'll then get two more nights (seeing a pattern anyone?) in Ballynahinch Castle. Established in the 17th century, it's set on 450 acres of lush woodlands and rivers well-suited for leisure activities like horseback riding, golfing, and, of course, horseback golfing.

The road trip finally comes to an end at Clontarf Castle, where you'll spend your final night (just one?!) in one of Dublin's finest boutique hotels, likely seeking the company of "the friendly ranger" that Thin Lizzy was was always talking about.
