At first you're thinking, "this is not exactly what we thought", but then after meeting Maureen and getting the tour of the place, information about everything to do and see, talking to the cows and trying fresh millk!, seeing the beautiful masonry work, having breakfast under the open sky, the wonderful 360 view from the roof, fresh apples from the tree, the farmers market Saturday, it was truly an amazing, unique and special experience to be able to stay at a national monument, it was wonderful and Maureen was beyond amazing in every way. Thank you for letting us have the opportunity to have this life experience!

Awesome castle. Rickety stairs, princess bed, great oak door, hundreds of years old, stellar view, and excellent plumbing! Everything you could dream for if interested in staying in a historical landmark! Plus, only twelve or so minutes from the Jameson distillery! And Maureen is so helpful and kind! Excellent stay :)

What a great experience! Maureen was right there at the entrance when we arrived and gave us a very nice tour of the castle. As mentioned by others, you'll want to pack a small bag for the night as getting up and down the stairs with anything else would be quite a chore. We had a great evening, cooked dinner for ourselves on the hot plate, ate by candlelight, had a few drinks on the roof while staring at a beautiful landscape. Everything was perfect and we couldn't have been happier!
