Valentine’s Day is coming up *cough, cough.

I know it’s still a ways off -there’s approximately 500 days of January left to get through first, but one can never be too prepared when it comes to booking a Valentine’s trip away.

The earlier the better…not only will you more than likely get a better deal, but you’ll also have something to look forward to and get you over the post-Christmas slump.

If you’re already at a loss for what to gift your significant other for love day, might I recommend an overnight stay in a castle? Yes, I thought that would pique your interest.

Dromoland Castle in County Clare is the perfect setting for a weekend of romancing. Set on a scenic 450-acre estate, the castle comes equipped with all manner of fun activities - from horse and trap tours of the grounds to golf and a whole host of different spa treatments, each more relaxing than the next.

Book in for a two-night stay (priced at €410 per person sharing) and you’ll be treated to a full Irish each morning, Mrs White’s famous Afternoon Tea and an estate activity to enjoy together as a couple.

Not to mention a bottle of house bubbly and some handmade chocolates. I guarantee you’ll leave Dromoland Castle feeling like a royal.

Now to start scraping my pennies together...
