I have stayed at the castle many times over the last ten years. This is a place worlds apart from the rat race, being a peaceful place to relax in nature. The view from the drawing room leads across the large field to a stand of mature trees, banks of rhododendrons and the distant Galtee mountains which are mesmerising as they change with passing showers, shafts of light, mist and occasionally dustings of snow. Three sides of the castle are surrounded by oak forest with a maze of pathways to get lost in. The castle has been renovated with impeccable taste being spacious and light-filled. For me this castle evokes a serenity that bypasses the outside wold. Don't get me started on the wonderful owners.
