There is also a ceremony room for intimate weddings.

The space
This self catering castle is hired as an exclusive let. You will have the entire castle to yourself !

Built by the de Burgo’s (Burkes) situated in the ancient Barony of Kilmaine County Mayo surrounded by 16 acres of rich pastureland. The castle is set against the backdrop of picturesque countryside with beautiful mountain views. The castle has five bathrooms and is the only self catering castle with en-suite bathrooms. Guests will enjoy the relaxed atmosphere of this authentic medieval castle, which has been fully restored and refurbished by the current owners.

Access to the castle from the private driveway leads to the front entrance.
Push open the massive oak door and embark on a journey to medieval Ireland.

The ground floor bed room is a large stone flagged beamed room with an ornately carved antique bed. The deep wall recesses are used as additional beds which makes this an ideal family room. The dedicated shower-room is situated next door.

The imposing stone staircase leads to the first floor with two en-suite bedrooms rooms: one principal vaulted double room with a delightfully romantic king size rococo bed and a small double room with a double Gothic iron bed.

On the next level is the great hall, once the heart of medieval life; the hall has a huge stone fireplace with a vaulted ceiling rising to over 20 feet. There is a beautiful 17th century oak table with ample room for a banquet. The fully equipped kitchen is conveniently situated next door. Fully fitted with serving hatch to the hall equipped with range cooker, microwave, fridge freezer, dishwasher etc. The hall can accommodate up to 25 seated. (please contact us for details).

An intricately designed minstrel’s gallery spans one end of the hall just waiting for the musicians to arrive, or failing that there is a valve amp CD system which takes full advantage of the incredible acoustics.

Past the old garderobe there is another small double/twin room with a delightful en-suite shower room.

Follow the stairs to the top of the Castle and enter the Lord and Lady’s apartment (sitting room). This is a large room gracefully furnished with antiques and hung with tapestries. The trussed roof was modelled on Dunsoghly castle and is a masterpiece of craftsman ship with every rafter and beam hand-crafted and traditionally treated. Hidden behind the bookcase is a ladder which leads to a secret chamber where valuables or prisoners would have been held. The views from the battlements are awe inspiring! On a clear day one can see for up to 40 miles across the stone walled fields to the Partry and Maamturk Mountains.

Adjacent to the sitting room is a beamed double room with a large four poster bed lavishly hung with silk embroidered drapes. Set in the window is a free standing bath which offers spectacular views of the stone walled fields and the mountains. The en-suite shower room has a double hand crafted sink unit.

All five bedrooms are heated with storage heaters while both the Great hall and top floor sitting room have wood burning stoves. All of the en-suite bathrooms are fitted with heated towel rails.

The castle has a beautiful sun terrace with views of the Partry Mountains.
It is the perfect spot for relaxing and enjoying the peaceful countryside.

High quality catering services can be arranged for delivery or served in
the great hall. Please advise in advance of your arrival.

We look forward to welcoming you to our magical little kingdom :-D

I am fascinated by old buildings and their remarkable history. I love antiques, decorating, collecting old furniture and have a passion for enhancing interiors. My husband Brendan, and I are also very passionate about Ireland's history and heritage. We were looking for a project with a bit of a challenge and found it when we purchased the castle. The building had been restored but it needed refurbishment. We spent eighteen months sourcing authentic furniture and materials to create a medieval experience with modern comfort. We are the custodians of this beautiful building and are so very pleased we can share this with you. We hope you have a wonderful stay !
