Once upon a time, there was a castle inhabited by a beautiful princess, Mary Fitzgerald. The plot thickens, though, as she married Prince Caracciolo of Italy before selling the fort out of the family in 1958. This week, the Fitzgerald family's loss is every Escapee's gain, as the property is now home to a hotel and golf resort.

Get away to the enchanting Waterford Castle Hotel & Golf Resort, regularly celebrated by Condé Nast Traveler and Travel + Leisure as one of the world's top hotels.

It's about 100 miles from Dublin, and with this week's Escape you'll get a two- ($631) or four-night ($837) stay for two in a Deluxe Suite. You'll also get a clay target shooting package for two, late 2 p.m. checkout, afternoon tea for two each day, and dinner for two on the first night at the award-winning Munster Room Restaurant.

This bewitching tale begins with a short ferry crossing to the private island where the 320-acre resort—recently voted a Travellers' Choice Top 25 Hotel in Ireland—is situated. You'll be directed to your Deluxe Suite, which is elegantly appointed with a king-size bed and en suite twin, plus a sitting area with TV.

Your story continues at the on-site golf course. The par-72 links were designed by former Ryder Cup player Des Smyth, and they wind through 200 acres of mature woodland and parkland. After completing the 6,814-yard course, you can relax in the lavish clubhouse.

And if you spent the morning hacking away from the bunker, you'll probably want to blow off some steam. You're in luck: The on-site clay pigeon range is the perfect place to do so, and with this week's Escape you'll be treated to range time and equipment for two.

Take some time to explore Waterford City. Ireland's oldest tourist destination was founded by the Vikings in 915 AD, and today it offers shops, restaurants, theaters, and bars.

Get a taste of happily ever after with this storybook Escape to Waterford Castle, sure to cure what ails a modern-day damsel (or dude) in distress.

  • "Throughout the grey stone castle there are antiques redolent of an elegant past, and a carved granite archway leads to the grand entrance hall, where a blazing fire warmed our welcome."
