THIS MONTH, TheJournal.ie turns five years old – and we want to give something back to our readers.

Every single day for the month of October we’re giving away a different prize. It’s our way of saying a very big thanks to all of you for reading us (can you believe it’s been five years? Cos we can’t).

From small beginnings back in October 2010, TheJournal.ie has grown to be one of the biggest news websites in the country.

So what about today’s prize? Well, it’s a good one.

The winner will receive an overnight stay for two people at the beautiful Dunboyne Castle Hotel and Spa in Meath. The prize includes dinner at the hotel’s award-winning restaurant The Ivy and breakfast the following morning.


Nestled in 21 rolling acres, this is the perfect setting for a luxury break.  The hotel is a beautiful blend of restored Georgian house and new contemporary wings in a modern style, making it the ideal location to relax and enjoy some quality time together in picturesque surroundings.

Try out the gorgeous Seoid Spa with its soothing thermal suite, restorative hydrotherapy and bubbling outdoor hot tub, indulge in a little me time with the paper in a comfortable armchair or treat yourself to delicious food from executive head chef John Nagel as you while away a lazy afternoon.


To win all you have to do is email competitions@thejournal.ie by 11.59pm tonight with DUNBOYNE CASTLE HOTEL AND SPA in the subject line. Include your name and contact number so we can give you a call if you win.

The winner will be chosen at random from all the entries and will be notified either by email or by phone.
