Our group of ten people spanned three generations and we used Bansha as a base for travels. It's an amazing place with seven beautifully equipped rooms - each with its own bathroom.
It's has a great culinary kitchen and dining room. The outdoor heated patio was a great place to unwind at the end of the day with a drink.
John & Teresa are excellent hosts and offer great recommendations. Bansha is a small town but we walked to the pub for a freshly poured Guiness on many nights! We used a Bansha Bus (Noel and Richard) so we didn't have to drive. It was great having a local guide so we could enjoy trips every days.
Bansha Castle is ideally located. We made trips to Galway & the Cliffs of Mohr, Killarney & Ring of Kerry, Cork & Blarney Castle, Kinsale & Old Head Golf Course (amazing), Waterford & Wexford, and local sites like the Rock of Cashel. Amazing scenery in Ireland.
We would love to come back and would definitely use Bansha Castle. It's a unique opportunity to have your own castle for a week!
