Hospitality is almost considered a religion to the Irish, with roots in ancient Celtic law. For over a thousand years Ireland abided by the Brehon Laws, which included an obligation for all households to provide oigidecht (hospitality) to all travelers.

Money was never expected as payment for such hospitality instead stories, poetry, and songs were welcomed. 

Here are three of Ireland’s most unique short-stay accommodations

The Ringfort

Fans of the television show Vikings are going to want a book a stay at The Ringfort at Wexford.

The Ringfort

Wexford is a historic Viking town, founded at the beginning of the 9th Century when Viking raiders decided to construct a small settlement in the area. Located in The Irish National Heritage Park, this unique accommodation offers people the chance to stay in a Medieval Ringfort.

Ringforts were common in Ireland 1500 years ago, and this accommodation gives you a chance to experience life like the original Viking settlers of the region.

Built using only traditional materials, this cosy accommodation provides space to truly switch off from modern life and take in the serenity of the surrounding national park.

Spellcast Cottage

Have you ever dreamt of spending a night in a Hogwarts dormitory? Then Spellcast Cottage may be the perfect Irish escape for you.

Also located in Wexford, Spellcast Cottage shows an attention to detail that any Harry Potter fan would appreciate.

The Fat Lady, Spellcast Cottage

The cottage is filled with magical trinkets and references to the Harry Potter world, while still including creature comforts such as streaming services and a cosy kitchen.

When it comes to bedtime, guests can choose from the Hogwarts dormitory or transport themselves to 4 Privet Drive by staying in the cupboard under the stairs!

The Hideaway at Ashford Castle

Ashford Castle is located on 350 acres of manicured gardens, forests, and woodland, overlooking Lough Corrib in County Mayo.
