It's widely known that the Harry Potter fandom is one of the most prevalent, intense and often inventive fandoms in existence. Fans of the popular wizarding franchise have been known to mobilise to create their own themed festivals, bars and message boards, write volumes upon volumes of fan fiction and even run fan guided tours of areas included in the film series.
For those amongst us who are partial to a spell or two, there's even a whole world of Harry Potter themed hotels and Airbnbs that are available to stay in, affording you the opportunity to live out your childhood fantasy (or adulthood fantasy, in many cases) of galivanting through the halls of Hogwarts in search of your Gryffindor or Ravenclaw-assigned sleeping quarters.
You might think such wonders exist only across the pond in the UK or the US (it does sound terribly American, doesn't it?) but you would be surprised to learn that there is a Harry Potter-themed house available to book on Airbnb in none other than Boyle, Co. Roscommon!
Upon entering this quaint abode, fondly entitled Draíocht (Magic) House, you'll discover nods to the franchise in every corner including, of course, bedrooms inspired by each of the aforementioned houses - Gryffindor, Slytherin, Ravenclaw and Hufflepuff.
It's not just the boudoirs that include hints of Harry (or touches of 'creative genius' if you ask whoever wrote the Airbnb listing) - there's sprinkles of magic to found in quite literally every nook and cranny of this house, from a luggage trolley sprouting from the wall by the stairs (and wink to the famous Platform 9 ¾) and a sign on the toilet which directs you to the Ministry of Magic.
Besides from these Easter eggs that are sure to delight any superfan, the house also looks generally quite gorge - the garden sports multiple decking areas, a barbeque and a real life treehouse that is sure to excite adults and children alike.
If you're a Harry Potter fanatic who dreams of travelling slightly farther afield, fear not as there is also a wide variety of Potter-themed accommodation types at your disposal all around the globe - from Florida to London to even the Philippines.
