What could you buy if you woke up €88m richer with the winning EuroMillons ticket?

The answer? Lots of things!

Here are some potential investments you could make:

1. Your very own castle

With €88m behind you, living life like a lord or lady is perfectly realistic.

Glin Castle in Co Limerick could be yours for just a mere €6.5m.

Only an hour's drive from Limerick city and Shannon Airport, this 13th century castle boasts a 380 acre estate overlooking the Shannon estuary.

Sure why not.

2. An island

Nothing like the privacy of your very own island.

Mermaid Isle in Kenmare Bay, Co Kerry could be yours for just under €3m.

It also comes with a luxury onshore six-bed home. Bargain.

3. Copper Face Jacks

While there is no valuation currently available for Copper Face Jacks, surely you could get yourself a nice share in Ireland's most popular nightclub with €88m.

You'd get a sold return on all that hard-earned money you spent on shots over the years.

4. A new set of wheels

Wave goodbye to that Nissan Micra which had you breaking out in a rash before the NCT.

Say hello to your new €250,000-valued Ferrari 458.

However, if you're planning on keeping your lotto win a secret, probably not the most modest purchase to make...

5. The Bord Gais Theatre

Valued at €20m, you'd never have to buy a ticket for any event again.
