Ashford Castle, Ireland

16 of 32

The Emerald Isle specializes in windswept romance, and Ashford Castle—which dates back to 1228 and was once owned by the Guinness family—taps right into that appeal. The present-day luxury hotel offers endless outdoorsy diversions, including kayaking, golf, and falconry. We’re more partial to indoor activities, though, especially when they involve sipping a pint by one of the castle’s magnificent fireplaces, located in the Ingelnook Bar and Prince of Wales Bar.
