Valentine’s Day is literally around the corner and to celebrate the occasion I’ve got a fantastic giveaway for you all! And what better way to start it then to take a closer look at one of the prizes up for grabs!

My Valentine’s Day Giveaway is in full swing right now and you’ve got the chance to win one of 5 amazing prizes! There’s a fantastic mix of places, and each day of the week I’ll be taking a little closer look at each one, so you can get a good idea of the beautiful hotels and spas that are included. And the first one I’ll be starting with truly is a breathtaking place indeed – allow me to introduce the beautiful Kilronan Castle!

Kilronan Castle – fit for a king and queen!

Set in acres of rolling countryside on the banks of Lough Meelagh in Co. Roscommon, the Kilronan Castle is a stunning hotel with a long and rich history. Built during the early 19th Century, its history can be traced back to the Tenison family which at one point held the titles of Earl and Countess of Kingston as well as Lord Lieutenant of Roscommon. You’ve got history at your fingertips here!

In 2005, this gorgeous estate was restored and converted into a gorgeous 4* spa hotel. A mix of accommodation is available here, so you can be sure that this hotel will suit any kind of staycation or getaway. The important thing is that you’re going to feel like royalty no matter what you go for.

There are several lodges in the castle grounds that are available to book. In these lodges you’ll find modern and luxurious 3-bedroomed apartments where you, friends and family can have a cosy self-catered stay together. You’ll be able to enjoy the magical castle settings but enjoy all your home comforts – perfect if you’ve got little ones with you!

However the rooms that really catch my eye at the stately rooms and suites situated within the castle itself. With grand, wooden furniture, rich and luxurious fabrics and high ceilings, this is the ultimate place to stay if you two want to enjoy some time alone and be the stars of your own fairy tale. The suites themselves all have four-poster beds too, just in case things weren’t luxurious enough already. ;)

As you’d expect from such a stately property, fine dining is high on the agenda. At the Douglas Hyde Restaurant, you can expect mouth-watering, locally-sourced dishes and fine wines to go with them too. If you go for one of the à la carte menus created by the head chef, you’ll be guaranteed a perfect dining experience in these wonderful settings.

That’s not all of course. One of the quickest ways to someone’s heart is with good food, but when you spoil yourself and your loved one to one of the lavish spa treatments here, it’s going to be a absolute winner! The hotel boasts fantastic spa facilities and a whole wealth of treatments that feature well-known product lines that are guaranteed to leave you feeling on cloud nine. Whether it’s a rejuvenating facial treatment, a heavenly massage or even body scrubs or wraps, there’s literally everything you could ever want on offer. There’s nothing stopping you from booking yourselves a luxurious half-day pamper package while you’re at it! ;)

The Prize – what’s included

Now we’re getting on to the good stuff! I’ll be be giving away a voucher for a stay at the Kilronan Castle during this Valentine’s Day Giveaway, and there are a few extras that will be included during your stay too if you’re lucky enough to win!

As well as your overnight accommodation, you’ll also be able to make good use of all the amenities on-site during your time here as well. First of all, you and your partner will be provided with a complimentary 1-hour thermal suite pass, meaning that you can make full use of the excellent spa facilities available. Chill in the sauna, experience the restorative effects of the aromatherapy steam room or even just let your worries melt away in the plunge pools – it’s up to you! Plus like I’ve said before, you can always book yourselves in for a spa treatment or two to complete the experience.

You’ve also got a full Irish breakfast provided during your stay too, so you’ll be able to experience the amazing cuisine on offer. And to help you make the most of your time here, you’ve got late checkout to finish it all off. Enjoy a little lie-in and take it easy!

So, if that sounds like your cup of tea then I definitely recommend taking part in my Valentine’s Day Giveaway. All you have to do is subscribe to my newsletter and you’ll be entered into the draw!
