Princely Vacay, Pauper's Prices: Ireland in Winter

Eight years ago, when my older daughter was 5, we took a family vacation to Ireland. Veronica was then in the "princess stage" (parents, you know what I'm talking about), so she was over the moon when we told her we'd be staying in an actual castle on our last night. But when we arrived at the impressive Dromoland Manor, she burst into tears. She'd been enjoying Ireland so much she didn't want to leave. And she realized that arriving at the castle meant the adventure was nearly over.

If today's deal had been around, we wouldn't have had the tears. Because it includes not just the spectacular Dromoland, but stays at Kilronan Castle (in Roscommon), Dunboyn Castle Hotel (just outside Dublin), and the Fitzpatrick Castle Hotel (also near Dublin). All in all, 6-nights in regal beds.

Airfare from the US (NYC at the lowest rate) is thrown in as is in-country transportation in your own gilded, horse drawn carriage. Okay, that was for Veronica. Its actually a manual rental car, but you'll feel pretty special knowing that you've gotten all of the above for just $899, including taxes. A Waterford Crystal Factory tour is also included.

The deal is available from November through February, on select dates. To learn more, go to the Aer Lingus Store, by clicking here.
