My girlfriend and I made our way around England and Ireland for a getaway and decided to stay a night at the Ballynahinch Castle after visiting Dublin and Galway (it's a short two-hour car ride, I'd highly recommend renting a car - and stopping in Galway on the way as it's an amazing little town). The staff was great, food was great, views were even better. We stayed in the larger of the double-occupancy rooms with a door & view out of our room to the river.
BEST PINT OF GUINNESS I HAD IN IRELAND, including Dublin (was there for St Paddy's). Must be the cellar temps or the lines or something, literally; less "tin" aftertaste and more chocolate than the pints I drank 1/2 mile from the brewery... who knew.
