Visiting the Emerald Isle? Don't get caught in a riddle of blarney and bedlam. Chart out the charms of the land of saints and scholars, and escape on a six-night trip to Ireland for one guest—either between July 1 and September 25 or between September 1 and October 31—courtesy of Sceptre Tours. Each three-bedroom villa accommodates four to six guests; coordinate your trip with at least three other travelers to avoid additional fees.*

Skip the puzzle of travel arrangements—round-trip airfare from New York's JFK airport ($1,399), Chicago's O'Hare airport ($1,424), or Boston's Logan airport ($1,449) is included.

You'll stay in a luxurious five-star, three-bedroom villa located on the historic grounds of Adare Manor, a 19th century house and former seat of the Earl of Dunraven and Mount-Earl, located in Ireland's Adare Village.

After landing on Condé Nast Traveler's Gold List for the past five years (and on National Geographic Traveler's 2011 list of the Best Hotels in Ireland), the resort now has a home in the magazine's Platinum Circle. Moreover, it was a TripAdvisor Travelers' Choice 2012 winner, named among the top 25 luxury and family hotels in Ireland—even making the country's top 25 hotels overall.

Set on an 840-acre estate, your villa includes a fully equipped kitchen with an American-style fridge, plush furnishings, flat-screen TVs, and a washer/dryer.

Steps away from your Éire residence lies a wealth of unique activities. Take a 15-minute stroll to the formal front gardens of the manor house for a narrated exhibition of falconry, including notes on hawks, owls, and falcons. Or, opt for a more personal experience with a hands-on falconry lesson that includes handling and flying your own hawk.

From your perch at this five-star resort, you'll be within minutes of some of the country's top attractions. The Cliffs of Moher, about an hour northwest of Limerick, rise nearly 400 feet out of the Atlantic and are home to around 20 species of birds. And an hour south of Adare Manor lies Blarney Castle, which dates back to the 17th century. Climb to the top and kiss the famous Blarney Stone—it's no small feat (visitors have to literally bend over backward and hang 90 feet in the air), but you'll be in good company among the distinguished statesmen and literary greats who've kissed the stone.

Other nearby attractions include the cities of Galway and Killarney, as well as the Ring of Kerry, a nature lover's paradise surrounded by rivers, lakes, mountains, and forests. After a day exploring the region, cruise back to Adare for another spirited adventure: a traditional Irish whiskey tasting.

Forget deciphering a cryptic pairing of flights and accommodations; with this week's Escape to Ireland you'll skip straight to luxurious craic.

*Room rates are based on a total occupancy of four to six guests; occupancies of three or fewer guests will be subject to additional fees.

  • "This 19th-century neo-Gothic manor surrounded by medieval ruins and castles, and hidden by the Maigue River and a barricade of trees, is 'a photographer’s dream.' Go to the wood-paneled Oakroom, overlooking the river, for dinner by candlelight."
