Great location100% of recent guests gave this home’s location a 5-star rating.

Come live as Kings & Queens in our castle! My dad spent 25 years restoring it from its roofless state to its former glory. It can comfortably sleep 10 adults. We are 5 minutes drive from the beautiful Medieval city of Kilkenny

Marian, Thank you for the lovely review. Your family were a delight, you should be proud - I loved watching the kids faces on the tour. I love when a guest appreciates just how much love and care went into our place and it was definitely obvious with you guys. We would love to have you stay any time. Mhairi

Awesome castle! It is like taking a journey back through time (with wifi), amazingly restored, simply beautiful, like a fantasy. And nearby Kilkenny is full of charm (and charming pubs).

There was 11 of us and all slept comfortably the entire week. It's truly a serene place, surrounded by pastures and bushes. Everything you need to feed a large group breakfast, lunch and dinner. Yes, some spiders are present but it's mostly old webbing. We even had an arachnopho…
