Now in its 64th year, the Fringe Fest is ready to take Edinburgh, Scotland by storm this August, offering festival-goers a whopping 17 percent more shows and events than the previous year. With 40,254 performances of 2,453 shows (running the gamut from comedy, to theater and dance) scheduled to take place during the 24-day fiesta, this event is recognized as the world’s largest art celebration.

The promising lineup (and increase) of acts will make vacancy at hotels around Edinburgh scarce, but our deal producers dug up a 2-night stay in an extravagant 13th-century castle starting from $879 – with breakfast and two *festival passports included! This bargain also includes dinner for one night in the castle’s Dungeon Restaurant, a place that is sure to bring you back to medieval times.

*The Edinburgh Festivals passport includes tickets, at reduced rates, for three shows/day. Shows are handpicked by festival critics in advance, the purpose of which is to create an unforgettable festival experience. The passport allows access to the Fringe Fest (the most popular), Edinburgh International Festival, as well as Book, Art, Mela and Jazz and Blues.

Dalhousie Castle has retained its traditional, 13th-century Scottish grandeur, and is located 30 minutes away from Edinburgh’s center city on the River Esk. The fortress also houses Scotland’s very first hydro spa, Aqueous.

You better plan on hanging around Scotland for a couple more days – it’s a long flight for just a two-night stay.

THE DETAILS: This package is available for stays Sunday through Thursday from August 6 through August 30 (the length of the Edinburgh Fringe Fest). To book, visit or call 011-44-(0)-1875-820-153.
