Welcome to the Community! I'm delighted to hear you are planning your vacation to Ireland this summer and totally agree that to stay in a Castle is a wonderful idea. Have you considered a stay a little further inland, in the Midlands of Ireland?Kinnitty Castle Hotel
might be your ideal base and is great fun for families to stay in. We have Twin/Family rooms which have two double beds. We are a true authentic Irish Castle, with history going back for hundreds of years, check out our website and Instagram feed to get a real feel for the ambience and history of the Castle (@kinnittycastleireland).
We are only 15 minutes drive from Birr Castle & Gardens - I'm sure your children would love to visit the giant treehouse and telescope there - and only 20 minutes drive from the beautiful Lough Boora Parklands, County Offaly, with wide open spaces, fascinating sculptures and bike hire. There's plenty to keep you entertained for a midweek three day stay, and we can even provide you with picnics to send you on your way exploring every day. We are located in County Offaly, at the foot of the Slieve Bloom Mountains, and you can experience activities such as Horse Treking, Archery and Clay Pigeon Shooting (over 16s only) along with plenty of walking trails both on site and in the local area.
