Overview

About the property

Castle (sleeps up to 10) & Coach House (sleeps up to 15); can rent separately

Vacation rental (self catering) homes don’t get any better than staying in Ballyhannon Castle very near Ennis in Co. Clare. Offering YOU the opportunity to experience a stay in a 600 year old authentic medieval Castle - enjoy it - and all to yourself. Treat yourself, your family or friends or wedding guests to a special venue you will never forget.

The Castle tower is over 100 feet high and is built over five storeys, each with it's own medieval (yet comfortable) charm.

Ranked by the Sunday Times newspaper in London as among the top 50 Castles in Britain & Ireland, we are one of the most unique and authentic Castles Ireland has to offer that you can actually stay in!

Built in 1490, during the ‘Golden Age of Castle-Building in Ireland’, you can look but you will not find a better location or example of a Celtic Castle in Ireland, especially with the combination of sleeping and living accommodations offered between the Castle and the optional addition of the adjacent Coach House. (Each property can be rented separately or together, as required).

But don’t just take our word for it – read all the amazing guest reviews left over our 11 years in business.
