In 1966, Disney decided to put their own spin on the story of Hugh O'Donnell in The Fighting Prince of Donegal. Captured by the Viceroy and thrown into prison, Hugh must battle an evil henchman and break out to unite Ireland in a fight against the English—which, naturally, he does dressed as a woman. Escapees feeling similarly imprisoned can grab a partner in crime, don a cunning disguise, and sneak off for a midweek overnight break at the Villa Rose hotel in Co. Donegal for just €86 (up to a €174 value). Alternatively, extend your stay for two nights for €133 (up to a €298 value).

Creep through the charming town of Ballybofey on your tiptoes and slip through the doors to find a boutique spa hotel where rural stone meets chic, contemporary elegance. Relaxing takes the starring role, so whip off your false moustache, settle into your room, and let the stylish décor in red and cream help you forget the trials of your journey.

When you want to unwind there's no need to duel: both of you can soothe your rebellious impulses with a session in the Thermal Spa. Amongst smart stone and mood lighting, breathe in Crystal Steam and ease your battle wounds underneath tropical showers and ice fountains. Then, enjoy a little hydrotherapy with a dip into a pool armed with water jets, or soak your toes in one of the foot spas.

In the evening, The Forge Bar—which hosts live music on Friday and Saturday—is the perfect place to curl up with a drink in front of the fireplace and tell tales of your daring.

Breakfast the next day will fortify you for swashbuckling through the sights. The beautiful Victorian Glenveagh Castle sits inside a national park spanning 35,000 acres of amazing scenery where a herd of red deer roam free, or for some even fresher air, head for the coast. There, you can explore some of the best cliff tops in Ireland and stroll—or canter—through the surf at Donegal's beaches.

Start an uprising against stress with this week's hand-picked Escape: no swords or dodgy tights required.

  • "With soaring sea cliffs that plummet 300 metres, deserted white sandy beaches, jaw-dropping landscapes, excellent seafood, and quiet cosy pubs, Donegal forces you to sit back, slow down and admire the view."
