Dungiven Castle has seen more action than most others of its type. First built in the 17th Century by the O'Cahan clan, it's hosted everything from American soliders during WWII to boogying revellers as a dance hall in the '50s and '60s: it's since been converted to a hotel, and voted one of the Guardian's Top 10 Country B&Bs.

If you feel like having a right royal get down in lovingly refurbished surroundings, get a two-night stay for two in a double room at the four AA-star hotel for £185 (up to a £413 value). Settle into your elegantly decorated room—complete with views of the surrounding countryside, a welcome bottle of Prosecco, and chocolate covered strawberries in your room—and wonder that this magnificent and lavishly appointed building was once earmarked for demolition.

Also included in your stay in a three-course meal in the hotel's award-winning restaurant, complete with a bottle of wine, to be enjoyed on one night of your stay. Tango with the likes of Dublin Bay prawns or Tipperary brie wrapped in filo pastry with a raspberry coulis to start, before moving on to home-cooked mains like fish pie or Dublin gammon with a whisky apple sauce. A final flirt with the rotating dessert board will have you feeling like dancing a jig—if, of course, you can move.

After your daily breakfast you'll also have the chance to experience historic Derry with a City of Derry Walking Tour. One of the finest walled cities in Europe, the aspect from the walls reveals the original Renaissance street plan, and outside the walls, you'll find plenty of opportunities to shop and stroll.

If you're keen to simply enjoy Derry's verdant landscape, there's a wealth of historic spots to discover nestled amongst the rolling hills surrounding Dungiven; and The Giant's Causeway also lies just a car journey north, where thousands of basalt columns dramatically stretch out into the sea.

Late checkout is included on your final day, so it'll feel more slow dance than jitterbug—just click 'Buy Now' for a waltz with County Derry.

  • "Spacious, elegant bedrooms overlook the 22 acres of landscaped gardens, with the Sperrin Mountains providing a stunning backdrop."
