An authentic castle experience, don't come here expecting a lot of modern amenities, but that's part of the charm. We absolutely loved our stay, the views from the roof of the castle are absolutely stunning. Plenty of nice restaurants nearby in Midleton. We hope to come back if we're ever in Ireland again!

Thank you so much for this unique experience. We were delighted to have found this treasure and to be able to stay there at a fair price. It was exactly as described and so easy to find. When we arrived we were not conditioned for so much stair climbing but quickly got over that. Maureen sent a pin drop and it brought us right to it. Definitely a wonderful accommodation if you ar looking for that historic medieval experience.

This is as close to being back in time as i could have imagined , with a few of the comfort features of modern Time ,like electricity running water and 2 half bathrooms, fridge and microwave cook top oven.What a great place and Nice host on beautiful grounds.Truly an amazing adventure , Stairs are hard to navigate so would not advise for person with any walking disabilties.Or oversize people , in the 1500,s people were alot smaller and thinner ,lol.

Great place! The only issues are really unavoidable - it is an old castle, a little musty and dusty but... it's a castle. What else would you expect? It's a fantastic place - beautiful views, very affordable. Having a small castle all to yourself - unbelievable! It's great! Maureen was great. Very friendly, even gave us fresh milk from the farm without our asking. Gave us a full tour, showed us around, invited us to visit her if we had any problems - but since we didn't, it was like it was our own. Didn't have a host hovering over us. This should be obvious for anyone staying at castle - but lots of stairs. Wasn't any issue for us though.
