The space

Knappogue Castle, a magnificent example of a medieval tower house, was built in 1467 by Sean MacNamara. The MacNamaras carried out extensive restoration before Lord Dunboyne acquired it in 1855. Lord Dunboyne made many additions to the Castle including the Courtyard, the Drawing Room and West Wing with its Clock Tower, Gateway and the Formal Walled Garden. Its history is imaginatively told on colourful panels throughout the rooms.

Knappogue Castle is located in a truly picturesque setting, surrounded by the tranquil landscape and rolling hills of County Clare. Beautiful gardens surround the Castle where one can relax or enjoy a peaceful stroll. The Formal Rose Garden and the Walled Garden dating back to 1817, now fully restored, are the ideal setting for your Wedding Pictures, Outdoor Ceremonies and Receptions.

Great place castle was very cool to explore with our a crowd! Awesome location just short drive to airport! Only issue was the WiFi didn’t work past 10 pm. May have been due to work being done and could not connect to mobile devices like phones at all.
