Time travel does exist! Five hundred years old, ten years in the making and now you can stay the night! Imagine being transported back through five centuries and having a unique, romantic "overknighter" in The Great Hall of our authentic 16th century Irish castle. A sanctuary from the modern world, The Black Castle is nestled amongst the beautiful rolling hills of North Tipperary (it's not such a long way!) with stunning Lough Derg, and all that it has to offer, on our doorstep

If you’ve ever wondered what it is like to stay in a tower castle...this place is not to be missed! Sonja & Kevin will take wonderful care to introduce you to this “labor of love”...their restoration of the Black Castle (which dates back to the 1500s)! While the Castle is still…

Staying at the Black Castle was one of our favorite experiences in our Ireland trip, and we really hope we can come back in the future as Kevin and Sonja continue to restore the other rooms. They are the nicest hosts and made our stay really comfortable. It was awesome having th…
