My husband and I had a wonderful stay at the castle. It was his first time to Ireland and had dreamed of staying in a castle. The work the owner has done to keep it authentic, yet functional and comfortable is outstanding. We loved that it was out in the wilds, with cows just beside the property, and a set of stairs that descends down to the water. We were fortunate enough to catch a sunset one night, but make no mistake - a fire in the grand fireplace is the perfect way to spend a gray and rainy evening. If you're looking for a true getaway where you can forget about the outside world, this is the perfect place to be!!!!
