Live Like a King & Queen on one of our Castle Vacations!

Authentic Ireland has a range of Ireland Castle Tours for you to choose from that range from luxury castle tours with a more romantic feel to more historic explorations of Irish castles.  There are a number of options from which to choose so it all comes down to what you’re looking for in your Ireland Vacation.  You haven’t truly experienced Ireland without witnessing the magnificent architecture of an Irish castle. Castles are mysterious and often romantic structures rich with history. The first Irish castles originated in the 12th century as mighty fortresses built by the Normans.  After the Norman decline, Gaelic Chieftains took over building castles all over Ireland and these are many of the castles still standing today, some which have become hotels or tourist attractions. Blarney Castle is one of the most well-known castles in Ireland.  Millions of people from all over the world have visited this destination to kiss the Blarney stone and be forever blessed with the gift of eloquence and persuasiveness (or so they say).  Authentic Ireland’s Grand Castles & Manors tour includes a Blarney Castle stop as well as other celebrated Irish destinations like Bunratty Castle, Ashford Castle and the majestic Cliffs of Moher.
