We’ve found the ultimate staycation spot for Harry Potter stans

If you spent lockdown dreaming of holidaying at the Weasley’s Burrow, read on.

There’s a cottage in Wexford where you can choose from sleeping in the cupboard under the stairs or the four poster beds from the Gryffindor dormitories, provided that you have the password for the Fat Lady.

Spellcast Cottage in Enniscorthy is the perfect spot for HP lovers to connect with their inner witch or wizard during a weekend away.


There are so many gems to discover throughout the cottage, including a Platform nine and three-quarters feature in the back garden, a secret entrance to a mystery area (it’s giving Room of Requirement vibes – if you know you know) and attention to detail that all Potter heads will appreciate.


It’s also ideally located with sandy beaches, pony trekking, canoeing and other waters ports, historic castles and a national heritage park all close by. Just bring along a few chocolate frogs and Bertie Botts along for the journey and you’ll be laughing.

Spellcast Cottage is the ideal staycation spot for anyone looking to soak up the last of Ireland’s Indian summer in the sunny South East, but would also be the perfect location for cosy winter break. Imagine settling down for a Harry Potter movie marathon here? The dream. You can find out more and book your own magical trip here.
