Ever wanted to be in a real-life fairy tale? I just know that anyone wanting to relive their childhood dreams of being a prince or princess are going to love this quirky Airbnb close to Drogheda!
Drogheda Castle Stay
Situated just outside of Drogheda town, this magical castle tower will make for the ultimate mini-getaway. Hidden away by lush forest all around, the castle tower offers peace and quiet, allowing you just enjoy your cosy moments together and soak up the really unique atmosphere!
While it isn’t a proper castle per se (it was built in the 19th Century), it features bucketloads of charm. The restorations to the building have preserved and maintained all the gorgeous details that make this tower what it is – from the Gothic-style window frames to the imposing crenellations at the top, this thing feels like the real deal! Step inside and you’ll be greeted by cosy interiors that feature bare stone walls, homely wooden beams and a spiral staircase. There are stoves to keep you warm, a bathroom with modern amenities and a fully-equipped kitchen. But I’ve saved the best til last – at the top of the tower you’ll find an amazing rooftop terrace. You’ll have the perfect lookout spot which views of the rolling hills and forests all around!
