Just because Game of Thrones is coming to an end doesn't mean you can't get your Westeros fix after this Sunday. This Irish Castle Airbnb will give you those heir-to-the-Iron-throne vibes. Minus the gore and twincest.
As with most castles that have been around for hundreds of years, Cahercastle in Galway, has its charm, but if you're looking for modern perfection, the hosts suggests you look elsewhere. Despite a few cobwebs and a little dust, more than 1,061 guests have rated this 600-year-old castle with 5 stars.
For approximately $180 a night, you and up to four guests can stay in the castle's master bedroom, which is the highest room in the castle. This space features two beds, and during your stay you'll have private access to the top two floors, which include the bedroom, living room, kitchen, and bathroom.
Because the castle is made entirely of stone, a huge fireplace keeps the place warm, in addition to the host's "pet dragon that lives in the dungeon"—though (spoiler alert!) they hopefully won't burn King's Landing to a crisp.
In addition to a spectacular view and A+ reviews, this Galway castle Airbnb boasts plenty of quirks, including several winding staircases, sheep and cows in the field nearby, and (of course) a turret.
One reviewer, Kasi, even d about how her trip was so much more than a vacation, but a lifelong family memory:
"What can I say? It was an experience my family won’t soon forget. If you are looking for a true medieval castle experience, this is it! No, it’s not a 5-star luxury hotel, but it’s so much more than that. Peter and Eva opened not only their castle, but their hearts and home to us. From showing our kids how to shoot a bow, to his boys entertaining our whole family with their music and shenanigans, to all the beautiful stories Peter & Eva d about the castle and their life experiences, this trip will surely be one our family won’t forgot. We would definitely come back for another visit!"
Now, how can I not book a trip?
