Durhamstown is a Norman Castle date 1420. Its a fascinating building with vaulted rooms - the current Kitchens, as well as Georgian extensions. Its a protected structure. We started Ireland's first Home / Castle Restaurant in July which has proved a great success! When we heard of Airbnb - we thought what a good fit for us.
We describe our style as shabby/chic it is a family home as well as a Monument! 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 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 with a very a fine 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! And of course - the best till last - we run the Posh Nosh Club, so an exciting Dinner Party every Friday!! (website hidden)
We have 6 double rooms in total. You can either book a room of your choice or the whole castle (please check our other listing). We also rent the Castle for private events like Wedding Buffets, Christmas Parties, etc.
We had such an incomparable blend of relaxation and inspiration when we spent the weekend with Sue and Dave at Durhamstown. They hosted us like their family, and their house is so very interesting, tasteful and storied. We are so grateful and are looking forward to visiting you again and catching up. Glad to have crossed paths.
Hi Brian, it was really good! We just had so many good chats from the trivial to the sublime - all very Patrick Kavanagh.....I think you two have to take a bow as well- you really became "adopted family" for the weekend. Do come (website hidden), the Barn is slowly getting underway! Sue
