From Cottage to Castle

Our Cottage to Castle tour offers you the opportunity to experience Ireland in a very unique way. For your first four nights you’ll rest easy in a beautiful Irish Cottage - Eden Retreat. Boasting all the amenities of a luxury home, this elevated property overlooks the surrounding Irish countryside. Live like a local, and enjoy everything Ennis town, and its famous surrounds has to offer. Next? An exquisite 5-star 19th Century Manor House Hotel awaits you, and it’s just short stroll from the heart of Cork City. And last, but not by any means least……your final taste of Ireland whisks you back in time again to another utterly luxurious and famous 5-star property, Dromoland Castle.
