Self catering holiday lettings don’t get any better than staying at Ballyhannon Castle near Ennis in Co. Clare, the best of the vacation rental by owner castles in Ireland.
Offering YOU the opportunity to experience a stay in a historic and authentic medieval Castle, all to yourself, just like they lived in 1490 when Ballyhannon Castle was built. So treat yourself, your family and friends or wedding guests to a venue you will never forget (for less than the cost of a hotel!).
The Castle towers up 100 feet and is built over five storeys, each with it's own medieval (yet comfortable) charm.
Ranked by the Sunday Times in London as among top 50 Castles in Britain & Ireland, we are one of the most unique and authentic Castles Ireland has to offer that you can actually stay in!
Built in 1490, during the ‘Golden Age of Castle-Building in Ireland’, you may look but you will not find a better location or example of a Celtic Castle here in Ireland, especially with the combination of sleeping and living accommodations offered between the Castle and the optional additional and adjacent Coach House, they can be rented separately or together, as required.
But don’t just take our word for it – read all the amazing guest reviews, left over all the years.
We are the Moore family, running a small family run business . We enjoy sharing our historic and national monument Castle tower with guests from all over the world who come for all kinds of stays and occasions/celebrations to make their holidays and occasions a happy time that they will remember always. It's a real honour for us to be able to play a small part in these dreams and memories that are made here.
Margaret Bresnan Moore purchased this castle in 2004
Castles like this have not been built for hundreds of years, so when an opportunity arose to purchase such an rare and amazing piece of Irish history, we embraced our luck to be able to own such a special and magical place.
Anyone can stay in a hotel anywhere in the world ... but how many can stay in an authentic 600 year old castle in Ireland, to have it and enjoy it, all to themselves - whatever their occasion and this is exactly what we offer - a unique and special experience for everybody to enjoy.
