Sell your soul for a luxury weekend in the country

What would you do for a luxury self catering weekend in the West of Ireland? Would you sell your soul and help launch a Google bomb?

I believe the only modification they would need to make is not to actually require people to use specific terms and not only would they have relieved themselves of jeopardy – but they would also get more links! 🙂
