  1. Hi,
    I would love to stay in a castle, I think that would really be an experience, just walk the grounds and the building and try to imagine what life must of been like actually living there in centuries past.

    Unfortunately not all the photos showed up for me, but I am using IE 8, it is a terrible browser, most of the time, especially in the last couple of weeks for some reason, but I would have to say I really liked the 1st castle, it sort of reminds me a bit of the castles in some fairytales. 🙂

    • Hi Mags! Aww no..I hope they do, I’m sorry to hear that 😦 I wish I could show them to you. I totally agree with you!! They are all beautiful castles. This makes me want to jump into a plane and fly to Ireland and stay at these beautiful places. Maybe when I retire I can plan my trip here 😉
