Waterford Castle, Ireland

Photo Tour of Waterford Castle, Ireland

By

Any would-be prince and princess who have entertained the fantasy of residing in a castle can live the dream at Waterford Castle in the eponymous county in Ireland.

Waterford Castle stands on its own island (actually, the cognoscenti refer to the Castle and surrounding 300-plus acres as "the Island"), and its provenance harks back centuries. Today the Island is a magical place that draws couples planning a holiday, a honeymoon, even a wedding.

The ivy-covered structure has the classic crenellated lines of a castle roof and features an arched wooden door and mullioned windows. (Sorry, no moat, but there are golf and tennis facilities to subdue visiting marauders.)
