Travel + Leisure says..."1832 Gothic Revival château on a sprawling parcel of parkland that includes a Robert Trent Jones Sr.–designed golf course. " ~From Travelandleisure.com

Conde Nast Traveler says..."Surrounded by medieval ruins and castles and hidden by the Maigue River and a barricade of trees, this nineteenth-century neo-Gothic manor is “a photographer’s dream.” With a village just beyond the grounds, authentic Irish pubs are within reach. The “fairy-tale setting” includes rooms with lush fabrics and marble bathrooms. Seek out the condos—“they’re spacious and modern and have every amenity.” “Staff make sure you’re well taken care of,” while “the golf course is world-class.” At the Carriagehouse Restaurant, the food is “tasty and addictive.” Go to the wood-paneled Oakroom, overlooking the river, for dinner by candlelight." ~From cntraveler.com

Ashford Castle

This hotel says...

The oldest castle in Ireland, dating to 1228, Ashford fits everyone’s fantasy of a medieval fortress, with soaring turrets, breathtaking views of Lough Corrib and a resident ghost. Once owned by the Guinness family, it opened as a hotel in 1939. Its rooms and suites boast traditional design, with original features carefully restored, plus the modern amenities of a luxury hotel. The rural setting accommodates a host of outdoor activities, including fly-fishing, golf, horseback riding, and hawk flying overseen by Ireland’s first school of falconry. The hotel’s historical details and sprawling grounds make it a romantic getaway for couples, who can relax in the treatment rooms or dine in their choice of two restaurants, the elegant George V Restaurant or the traditional “Cullen’s at the Cottage.”

The hotel is in walking distance to most of the attractions. Frankfurt Airport is just 90 minutes away by car.

Juicy Tidbits

Travel + Leisure says..."The thermal springs of Baden-Baden, in southwestern Germany, have enjoyed fame since ancient Roman times. The town’s Brenners Park-Hotel & Spa, bordering the gingko-lined Lichtenaler Allee, is no secret either. Since the property’s founding in 1872, every high-powered politico and cultural notable (Henry Ford; Richard Tauber; Charles de Gaulle) has rested his head under a leather-tufted headboard or gilt-framed painting, and parted the guest rooms’ toile de jouy drapes. These days, chef Rudolf Pellkofer’s classic, complex cuisine (awarded a second Michelin star in 2010) turns heads; try the marinated Danube salmon with Kaernten caviar. The hotel’s other claim to fame, the expansive spa—with a Roman–style pool, blossom baths, and two types of saunas—offers curative rituals, such as Secret of the Lotus, a pearl-powder body peel, silk-glove massage, and milk bath." ~From Travelandleisure.com

Conde Nast Traveler says..."Old-world charm, great service—they miss nothing.” The 140-year-old grande dame in a valley in the Black Forest Mountains, overlooking the tree-lined Lichtentaler Allée, has rooms done in classic country house style. Some accommodations have iron balconies and large windows. “One of the most relaxing and exciting places,” it’s near the historic Baden-Baden thermal baths and springs. The hotel’s Medical Spa offers preventive health care, two-day comprehensive examinations, and aesthetic dentistry and dermatology services." ~From cntraveler.com
