From the booking I wasn’t totally sure what were in for. It is a large apartment, with more natural light than I expected, and large inviting bedrooms. The space is very unique, and it includes a modern kitchen. However, the kitchen felt sparse in terms of dishes, glassware, and …

What a unique place to call home temporarily! Hosts were very friendly, easy accessible, and knowledgeable. Expect to be chilly in the winter, it IS a castle, after all!

It is a castle that’s true! The part you were in we think dates back to 1275! Sorry to hear you were chilly though - as a chilly person I don’t like that. We’ll show people how to boost the heating for themselves. Thanks Krystal ! Sue

We rented the apartment, which is connected to the main house/ castle. The location is secluded and one must drive to find any restaurants or shopping. About an hour drive from Dublin in heavy traffic. However, that was exactly what we were looking for on our tour of the Irish co…

Ah Erin apologies! We grill & poach brekkie so I didn't think of that-sorry. The Medieval kitchen is a hard one to get right. You want to keep the ancient vaulted ceilings & the tiled floor but to get it squeaky clean is a near impossibility. Again, could we refund you something towards your next trip? Best, Sue

This was one of the coolest places we've stayed far- it's literally part of a castle! We absolutely loved the history and the location :) Sue and her husband were amazing hosts and made us feel so welcome. We hope to get back there again!
