Durhamstown is a Norman Castle dating from 1420.The original vaulted rooms, of which there are 4, are intact with 600 year old plaster still there!. As it is the oldest continuously inhabited house in the County of Meath, it is now a Recorded Monument. Over the centuries various additions have been added on & you can go from the Middle Ages to the Victorian Era in one bound! Downstairs you have the Kitchen, the Hall, the Dining room, the Drawing Room & the Music room all interconnected which is ideal for large gatherings & parties. It is decorated in a sympathetic but eclectic style- antiques mingling with junk shop treasures.
It is very rural, yet Dublin is a mere 30 minutes away (there's a bus service from the town centre to Dublin every 30 minutes) if some Razzmatazz and Culture is required! Meath is full of Historic and Prehistoric remains:New Grange, Lough Crew, Tara etc. as well as Riding, Fishing and Hunting. There are some lovely walks either on the Beaches or in the Woods. Our local town has some great Pubs. An Art Centre, The Solstice. For some local colour The Causey Farm is a must-you learn to dance a jig and bake bread-proper Irish Craic! We have the Posh Nosh on Fridays.There are several Restaurants in Navan.
We have 8 double rooms in total. You can either book the whole castle (this listing) or a room of your choice (please check our other listing). We also rent the Castle for private events like Weddings, Wedding Buffets, Christmas parties Anniversaries, Big Family Get together, Group Bonding sessions. etc.

Sue & her wonderful staff were amazing. I can't thank her enough for opening up her house to us for our very special family occasion. The ambience of the castle was such that you felt instantly at ease. Sue and her husband (who we hope to meet one day) had left beautiful breads, sausages & bacon for our breakfasts which went down very well. On the Saturday evening we hosted a special dinner for my parents. The dinning room looked amazing and was only topped by the delicious meal that was served by Sue's staff. It was just perfect.
Thank you Sue. Best Wishes. Lesley, a definite Fan!!!
