If you fancy escaping somewhere magical, then, boy, do we have the place for you.
Draiocht stands for magic in Gaelic, and that's what you get throughout the property.
Based in the town of Boyle, in Roscommon - a landlocked county in Ireland's central north - the Airbnb adds a sprinkle of Hogwarts charm in every single room, from the living room to each dorm-style bedroom, each with their own Harry Potter house theme.
The owner really has thought of everything when it comes to the decor, from a Hogwarts luggage trolley sticking out one of the walls on the stairs, to emulate Platform 9 3/4, to wooden signs directing visitors to Hogsmeade, Diagon Alley and Azkaban.
There's broomsticks on the walls, trunks for storage and school flags adorning the staircase.
You'll honestly feel like you've stepped onto the set of the movie!
Guests at Draiocht House will be given access to the entire property, which includes a huge half acre garden to explore in and even a tree house for the kids to play in.
There's a decking area to have barbecues, a vegetable garden just like Professor Sprout's - better watch out for those noisy Mandrakes!
The Harry Potter theme is only a fraction of the stunning property's appeal.
It is also less than a five minute walk to the shops. Plus, there are a string of restaurants, pubs and historical sites at your fingertips.
Fancy a trip to Lough Key forest and activity park? Well, it's only 4 km away. Meanwhile, the Neolithical Carrowkeel tombs and the stunning Caves of Keash are only a short drive away, too.
The Airbnb's owner states that for "outdoor enthusiasts who enjoy walking, fishing, golfing and nature this is the ideal location."
The premises sleeps seven people, and there are slots available in the coming months, so you can get booking your post lockdown staycation.
Prices start at €149 (£170.73) per night for one person, and you have to stay for a minimum of two nights.
You can book your stay here.
While a holiday to Ireland sounds positively dreamy right now, it's worth noting that currently the Foreign & Commonwealth Office currently advises British nationals against all but essential international travel.
All arrivals from overseas, including Irish residents, are also being asked to self-isolate for 14 days on arrival, so you might want to hold off on booking anything just yet.
There are some exemptions, including if you are returning to Ireland from Northern Ireland.
The coronavirus travel restrictions in Ireland are constantly being reviewed based on risk and public safety.
