Though beautiful, the famous 13th century castles in England and France were actually quite flawed. The reason: no golf courses. What a dreadful mistake. Luckily the Adare Manor Hotel and Golf Resort in Ireland learns from the blunders of castles past.

Located in the antique looking County Limerick, the five-star castle is pure European baller lodging. The manor, which was once the home of the Earl of Dunraven and Mount-Earl before becoming a hotel, is universally known for being one of the illest resorts in the country. There's not a lot of opportunity to be idle when you can go horseback riding, practice archery, shoot clay pigeons, sip wine and whisky, and, unbelievably, ride in hot air balloons. Yes, you can ride on a hot air balloon. Words can’t explain how awesome that is.

Of course we didn’t forget the main attraction—besides all that castle aurora—which is the 7,453-yard golf course. This place is literally where the pros play, with the course hosting the Irish Open twice.

If you want to take advantage of all these distractions it will cost you around $450 dollars a day, which isn’t outrageous; still, it’ll hurt. If that's too much but you still want that castle living, we’re quite sure that a nice Friday evening dinner at the Medieval Times restaurant will suffice.
