Every girl dreams about the moment when the man she loves proposes. Thankfully, both hubbies-to-be and hotels are burning the midnight oil trying to come up with new and cool ideas for popping the question. Ashford Castle has come up with one of the most original ideas we’ve heard in a while with their latest proposal package. This five-star hotel has been featured in Destination I Do Magazine more than once and we can attest to its breathtaking beauty and stellar service.

As if the idyllic setting of an Irish castle wasn’t enough, propose with the help of Ashford Castle’s resident owl, Dingle. After a falconry lesson, this little cutie will swoop in with the engagement ring around his neck – just in time for the perfect proposal. Here’s what the entire proposal package entails:

• Three nights’ bed & breakfast
• Bottle of Champagne in-room upon arrival with strawberries and chocolates
• Couples massage
• Candlelit dinner in the George V Dining Room on evening of choice
• Rose petal turndown service
• Champagne breakfast in-bed on one morning
• One-hour romantic boat ride
• Falconry lesson, finished off with a special visit from Dingle the owl

The package is valid through December 22, 2012 and prices start at €1,450, based on double occupancy. So, if you’re planning on taking a romantic trek through Ireland, why not wrap in a proposal which she’ll never forget!
