Hackett Castle is a 15th century tower house. It is like a keep, but has one major difference. Where a keep is a powerful thick-walled tower with few openings except arrow loops, an Irish tower house in a home for the family, that resembles a keep. When restoring this tower, we have maintained its status as a fortress. We also have made a decision to make it warm and comfortable. It is a cozy country home ensconced between between castellated battlements, authentic and usable!

John and his family are delightful, pleasant, and so helpful. Not to mention the accomodation. It is outstanding! We only stayed one night, regrettably. Don't miss this unique opportunity with awesome hosts.
