This was a special family gathering for us - 1 grandma, her 2 daughters and their husbands, and 5 kids aged 7-14. While not for everyone, as there are many steps between floors, and there are only 2 bathrooms, and the kitchen is for 2 people max, this was an amazing and unbeatable Irish experience none of us will ever forget. The kids loved exploring the castle and it's grounds, taking out the boat for excursions, island explorations and fishing. They had the 6 or 7 beds on the first floor, and a bathroom, to themselves. The adults loved walking to the local rural pub. We took wonderful hikes, and visited many sites. The cousins played card games at night or read in an alcove somewhere. Really special. We loved Ireland and its people.
