We are planning a family vacation in Ireland this summer with four adults and four kids (ages 5-9, well behaved). We would love to spend at least one night in an authentic castle (REAL castle feel that the kids would appreciate).
We are open to almost any location, but are definitely going to be in the west (Co Galway, Co Mayo) at some point so Ballyhanich and Ashmore caught our eye.
Any recommendations on Ballyhanich vs. Ashmore? Or, any other strong recommendations of other castles where you can spend the night?
Thanks very much!
