We spent a wonderful time here last weekend. It was cosy and very comfortable , with great heating system and lots of hot water. The outdoor barbecue area was great for al fresco dining while the children played in the lawn. Big open fire was welcoming in the evening to relax. The toddlers made themselves at home here immediately enjoying...

We booked the castle for a joint 30th. Which turned into our engagement party. It was absolutely amazing. The pictures don't do it justice. Every room in the place was ensuite and fabulous. We couldn't ask for better service. Teresa was so helpful and so accommodating. She found out when we arrived that it was our birthday and came back...

Perfect for gatherings of family or friends or both! Bansha Castle has plenty of room. It has a lovely walled garden to the rear, with a fantastic barbecue area. I was with a party of 20 for a hen's weekend. The accommodation is spacious, really well maintained and very clean. The wood fire was a welcoming asset too. We self...

We recently celebrated my Dad's 80th birthday in Bansha Castle and had a truly wonderful experience! I have had Bansha Castle on my "bucket list" for a few years and on each occasion the dates didn't work - however Teresa was always such a joy to deal with that I was delighted when we finally got there a few weeks...

5 stars isn't enough to rate Bansha Castle!! 10 stars would even be modest! So so happy with our weekend, it really was the perfect venue for our friend's hen party.

SECOND TIME to stay at Bansha Castle and once again we were blown away with the sheer comfort and style this luxury accommodation has to offer. From the twinkly lights on the tall trees which guard the magnificent doorway, to the tastefully decorated Christmas tree in the cosy lounge and the long dinning room table laid fit for Kings. Indeed...
