Ideal for large family reunions and gatherings, celebrations and special events as well as small intimate weddings. You can rent the whole Castle or you have the option to just rent one part to suit your group size. The Castle sleeps up to 15 in eight bedrooms and has six bathrooms. The East Tower sleeps 10 with three double rooms in the tower all with bathrooms en suite, and the clock suite with a double room and a twin single bedded room which share a bath and shower room en suite. Each castle is fully equipped with its own entrance, courtyard, hallway, dining room, kitchen and drawing room. Whether you rent all of the property or just one part you will enjoy privacy and authentic country house comfort. Inside, the use of rich warm colors, acts as an antidote to the Irish climate. The fireplace in the entrance hall is especially welcoming in the winter months. The house is fully equipped to a high standard and is centrally heated.
