How’s this for a long-lasting hotel souvenir? Guests (or fans) of Ashford Castle, located an hour from Galway on the west coast of Ireland, can take home the new Ashford Castle Monopoly board.
Just like the original game, which was first created in the early 1900s, players can land in jail or bankruptcy. But instead of Boardwalk and Park Place, you can spend your game cash on the Kennedy Suite or the Reagan Presidential Suite at Ashford Castle. Various landing posts on the board include the Cinema, the Prince of Wales Bar, the wine cellar, or Ireland’s First School of Falconry. At Ashford Castle, guests have the chance to meet, hug, and play with the hotel’s ambassador Irish Wolfhounds every day. And in the game, the pieces include these beloved dogs.
Purchase Ashford Castle Monopoly at Mrs. Tea’s Boutique & Bakery at the hotel, or online, complete with a festive green and gold box, complementing the colors of Ashford Castle.
