This 13th-century stone castle with 20th-century additions offers guests total luxury and sophistication in its 83 rooms and suites—and one Lakeside Cottage. The 350-acre lakeside estate starred in John Ford's The Quiet Man, was the private residence of Sir Benjamin Lee Guinness (oh yes, that Guinness) and now plays country retreat to a discerning clientele from Ireland and beyond. Activities include, but are not limited to, falconry lessons and horseback riding.
