Create your own fairytale with this Aer Lingus Vacation that flies you to Shannon in the beautiful southwestern region with iconic rolling green hills and dramatic cliffs.

Stay one night in the four-star Strand Hotel in Limerick along the banks of the Shannon River and then three nights in small Irish B&Bs. Travel between charming seaside villages in your included rental car with unlimited mileage.

The fourth night is in the lavish Ashford Castle where estate activities include golf, horseback riding, fishing and even falconry, and the final night is spent in Limerick at the Strand before departing from the Shannon airport.

The value: One night at the Ashford Castle is over $200/nt alone so getting the rest — including airfare and rental car — for $749 is a steal. Full breakfast is included everywhere except The Strand.
