Know what I did on Valentine’s Day?

I fell asleep while watching a movie. Know what my friend Claire did on Valentine’s Day? She spent the weekend in a castle in the southeast of Ireland.

Her boyfriend Fiachra took her to the 800 year-old Waterford Castle located on its own island.

So beautiful, even its window latches are works of art.

“When we arrived we took a stroll around, went for dinner and had drinks at the cozy bar,” she says.

“Crawled down for a full-out breakfast buffet the next day and played a round of golf.”

“It was the most surprising gift.”

And this, friends, is why it pays to date a European.
