A most memorable and enjoyable experience
Our family will always cherish the memories we created at the Killahara castle! It is nothing like anything else we've ever experienced! The character and charm (and extensive history!) of this special place is one to never be forgotten. The feeling of climbing to the rooftop suite and looking out over Tipperary (and enjoying the twinkling stars at nighttime) is unsurpassed! The kids and teenagers in our family even put together a little film trailer with creative scenes from various parts of the castle. The adults in our family especially enjoyed the comfortable setting of the lounge and fireplace area. Pure enjoyment was had by all! We would stay there again in a heartbeat and would recommend it to any and all considering a family getaway!
