We wanted to stay in a castle at least once on our trip. This 800 year old building has a cool dungeon bar, library bar, horses, tennis and even a clay pigeon shooting range. Our stay was highlighted by fabulous food. Lunch and dinner were the best food we had in Ireland. While it is relatively remote and in places...

Good Castle experience with excellent grounds. Great food quality chef but atmosphere was hindered by average deadpan service. Great reception. Was ok but would not go back. Could be such a great place but needs basic maintenance that is very noticeable.

We stumbled across this magical place one Winters evening, in the search of a wedding venue. It was the first and only venue we needed to see. The beauty and character of this castle was inimitable.

Kinnitty Castle, is close to the picturesque village of Kinnitty, Co. Offaly set beautifully against a backdrop of the Slieve Bloom Mountains. The Castle has a long and turbulent history. Dating originally from 1209, Kinnitty was destroyed and rebuilt not once but twice and yet it retains character and oozes charm.
