    Staying at the Castle
    The views, surroundings and area at the Castle are amazing! The Castle is truly a one-of-a-kind experience. As noted in the listing - this is not for everyone. Elderly may have issues with all the steps as well as young children. Stephanie is a very nice host and easy to chat with. If you are looking for something different and can manage the steps - this is a wonderful choice.

    You’re in for an experience (no kids <7 should stay here)
    Cons first - Many stairs. Top floor is 25 steep steps up a low rock hall, which sounds cool but was a bit much. It was also VERY windy up there for the whole trip. This rattled the windows/ whistled. I ended up joining my kids in their “room”. My 7 year old son was barely old enough to safely stay here. I would NOT recommend this place to anyone with kids younger than age 7, or with any kid of physical limitations. There are stairs up from the main floor and also from the mezzanine up a spiral staircase. The mezzanine and “kids” room is open to the rest of the castle so is open to noise in the castle and wind. Very humid in the “kids room” as well, which is due to the dampness of the castle walls which are whitewashed (and flake on the counters and floors). The place isn’t especially clean but I do imagine it’s hard to maintain due to the elements and white walls flaking. The bathroom on the top floor has drainage issues - I have been in many showers which are open to the room and they drain properly & this isn’t “normal”. The water pools on the floor and must be squeegeed down then wiped with towels. Pros- private, neat fireplace and ability to cook (but bring your own dish soap/basic food items/dishwasher tabs). Had to ask for clean duvet cover and more kitchen towels but the owner was responsive & provided the requested items. The instructions were clear. The internet was pretty good. Liked having a bbq. Overall- very unique experience/like camping in a castle.

    Great Castle but.....
    Pros---This is a great opportunity to stay in an authentic castle, One-of-a-kind experience. Awesome location and unbelievable view. Love the room at the top. Surprisingly warm in all levels. Good hot water. Strong Wifi. Host provides good directions and recommendations. Can tell put alot of care into restoration. Cons--Yes, I understand it is a 500 yr old castle. There will be cobwebs and dust, understandable. No problem with that. However, the modern aspects of the accomadations that can be controlled are not. Linens were dirty upon arrival. We used our own t-shirts as pillowcases and the blankets from the airline saved us. All extra blankets very dusty. Towels disgusting. We went to a shop to buy our own. Cobwebs and dust in upstairs modern bathroom. When using shower, it does not drain correctly and floods the whole toilet/sink area. The two beds in the loft area cannot be used. A dust of lime from the ceiling covers you each night. Do not want to breathe in.

    Rustic Charm on Roaring Water Bay
    We stayed here with our 16-year-old daughters and five-year-old son. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed it here. The kids especially enjoyed playing down at the rocky beach area, sometimes the sea babies (seals) would even come in close enough to see. Remember, this is a tower so your legs will get a workout (not a bad thing in my opinion) and the stairs to the top are steep but keep in mind that they are original. Our five-year-old had the stairs down on his own within a day, but you'll want to supervise if you have little ones. The views are amazing, and this is a great home base for exploring. Skibbereen and Baltimore are reasonable drives with a lot to offer. Everyone was super responsive and helpful; the host leaves some great recommendations as well to help with planning. This was a really peaceful place, and we cherished our time here.

    A Remarkable Wsy To Experience Medieval Ireland
    Hard to imagine a more unique and exciting way to experience Ireland than in this amazing VRBO. The castle has an unsurpassed 360 degree views of the water and farmland. Inside, it has the modern conveniences you need while maintaining a rustic atmosphere. The stairs can be a challenge yet the views from the modern upstairs bedroom is worth the risk. Everything was clean, warm and comfortable. Good directions and easy to find on the map. Excellent Wifi throughout. Highly recommend for a once-in-a-lifetime lodging experience.

    Amazing views
    The views were amazing. Our neighbors were literal cows and they were super friendly. 10/10 would cow again. Being on the bay and walking along the sea was breathtaking. Lots of cool towns within short drives. The recommendations the host leaves are an excellent way to plan your days. Cool experience to stay in a tower house/castle that has history. The castle stairs to the top room are not for the faint of heart, but would happily recommend anyone wanting a unique stay in a beautiful area.
