Ballyhannon Castle

Ranked by the Sunday Times in London as among top 50 Castles in Britain & Ireland, we are one of the most unique Celtic Castles Ireland has to offer!

You have the opportunity to experience what it is like to stay in an authentic medieval Castle, all to yourself, just like they lived in 1490 when Ballyhannon Castle was built.  So treat yourself, your family and friends/wedding guests to a venue you and they will never forget (for less than the cost of a hotel!).

What’s more romantic than a Castle wedding in Ireland with up to 25 of your guests able to stay with you at no extra cost! Our nine bedrooms are perfect for large groups, family reunions, small conferences, team building, tours, and other gatherings where the whole group can stay, eat, mix and play together.

The Castle towers up 100 feet and is built over five storeys, and the pictures above show all the rooms with a summary of where each is vis-á-vis the others, and within the building itself. The Medieval Dining Room has alcoves and arches, and is where the horses were originally kept and fed in bygone days.

Built during what is known as the ‘Golden Age of Castle-Building in Ireland’, you may look but you will not find a better location or example of Celtic Castles Ireland has in this world renowned island of ours, especially with the combination of sleeping and living accommodations between the Castle and the adjacent Coach House. Don’t take our word for it – just read the testimonials and reviews of our guests on Tripadvisor.
