    "Ashford Castle, Mayo/Galway, Ireland" in 1228, the medieval castle turned five star luxury hotel. Built by the Anglo-Norman House of Burke in the vastness of a wild and untamed province. In 1589 passed to the English official Sir Richard Bingham, following a fierce battle. In 1852 was purchased by Sir Benjamin Lee Guinness, who added two large Victorian style extensions. Sold in 2007 for € 50m. to Gerry Barrett, now in receivership, though the hotel continues as a going concern.

    River Liffey and Dublin at night. Dublin is a lively city at night. Don't stay in the Temple Bar area hotels ... unless you plan to party till 2am ... too noisy if you prefer to sleep in the evening.
