Today I'd Go ... to a Castle in Ireland

Amy Bertrand, St. Louis Post-Dispatch, March 22, 2012

With the celebrations from St. Patrick's Day last weekend fresh in my mind, I couldn't help but be attracted to this email I received. It's for a stay in Adare Village in Ireland. I mean, who wouldn't want to stay in a five-star castle?

From the email:

Adare Manor is one of western Ireland's most exclusive, Five Star Gothic castles resorts and also one of the Emerald Isle's most enchanting holiday destinations. Adjacent to the castle at Adare Manor, just beyond the entrance gates, is charming Adare Village, with thatched roof houses and specialty shops, quaint streetscapes, 19th century churches and more.
