If you've got a true Harry Potter-head in the family, look no further than Spellcast Cottage in Enniscorthy, Co. Wexford as the location for your next staycation.
This spellbinding Airbnb is one of the world's most impression Potter-themed accommodations, a spooky little abode sporting a tonne of charming nods to the famous book and film series.
Perhaps the best part of the house lies beneath the stairs where you'll find a hidden sleeping compartment as a tribute to Harry's miserable life pre-Hogwarts living arrangement with the Durleys.
After climbing a steep staircase you'll find a four-person 'dormitory' with built-in single beds (with memory foam mattresses no less), each themed after one of the four houses of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry - Slytherin, Gryffindor, Ravenclaw and Hufflepuff. You'll even find a mirror in the bedroom with none other than Dawn French herself as The Fat Lady staring back you asking what the password is, exactly like in the films!
There's also a secret door leading to a 'mystery area' that is sure to delight the children, complete with glow in the dark wallpaper, costume items for playing dress up and markers to write secret messages on the walls to future inhabitants.
Outside in the garden you'll find plenty of other cute Potter-themed details such as a owl cages and a luggage trolley half-way through the back wall a la Platform 9¾, providing many the photo opp for you and your gang.
If you are inspired to leave this mystical accommodation, you'll find an abundance of activities and local tourist attractions your disposal including... *takes breath* sandy beaches, beautiful gardens and walks, historic castles and towns, the national heritage park, surfing, canoeing and even pony trekking!
