Choose from a menu of 48 castle hotels.

Celtic Castles
This agency has been around since the late 1980s; it represents some 85 properties in the UK, Ireland, and France. (It also books weddings and other catered events.)

Haunted Rooms
Why share a hostel dormitory with strangers when you can share a castle or hotel room with a ghost? "The UK and Ireland's largest directory of haunted accommodation" also lists ghost-hunting events in England, Scotland, Wales, and Ireland.

Paradores de España
Many of Spain's paradores are in renovated castles, monasteries, and other historic buildings. They tend to be slightly upscale but cheaper than comparable luxury hotels.

Pousadas de Portugal
Like Spain's paradores, the pousadas of Portugal are often housed in historic buildings. Each inn reflects the decor, culture, and cuisine of its region.

 Castle Hotels & Mansions
This attractive site lists dozens of independently-owned hotels and restaurants in Austria, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Italy, and Slovakia.

Individual Castle Hotels & Rentals

Amberley Castle
"The only medieval fortified castle in England where you can spend the night" has a working porticullis that is lowered at bedtime. The castle, now a luxury hotel, is about an hour from London by train.

Bring up to 17 relatives or friends along when you stay at this baronial house near Loch Moidart on the West Coast of Scotland. Rates include logs for the open fireplaces.
