Ballyhannon Castle self catering accommodation County Clare Ireland

If you are looking for castles to rent in Ireland, Ballyhannon Castle in County Clare is a magnificent medieval vacation rental (Irish self catering) celtic castle dating back to the 15th century. It is one of the last remaining intact medieval Irish castles, and although it is now privately owned, the current owner has opened it up for hire for all to enjoy, and to experience how our Irish ancestors lived in the 1400’s. It’s secluded though central location in Ireland has made it one of the most sought after venues for medieval Irish castle

weddings and events, or for anyone who simply wants to rent a castle in Ireland.

Also known as Castlefergus, it is registered as a “Listed/Protected” property in the Irish Governmental records, meaning that it is intrinsically of significant historic, architectural and aesthetic interest. The fortunate fact that the private owner has opened up this historic fortress as an Irish vacation rental / self catering castle allows anyone to exclusively rent a castle in Ireland for their wedding, honeymoon, family reunion or other milestone, or just to have the unique experience of staying in a castle with no one other than the members of one’s own group.

Of the celtic medieval castles to rent in Ireland which are similarly available for exclusive hire, Ballyhannon Castle is quite unique in its internal and external original preservation and design, and one of the only authentic medieval Irish Castles for rent which are still in use just as it was nearly 600 years ago.

For those of you who don’t wish to compromise on all of your present day comforts when they rent a castle in Ireland, all modern conveniences and appliances have been sensitively and discreetly incorporated into this 600 year old castle! That said, it must be emphasised that this is a 15th century castle in every other sense.

By really what is historic coincidence, of all the castles to rent in Ireland this property is exceptionally well located for 21st century visitors to Irish shores. It is strategically and conveniently at the heart of the west coast of Ireland. It is beside Shannon International airport for those travelling to Ireland from abroad, yet in a rural setting within its own territorial stone-walled perimeter surrounded by farmland, and overlooks the Shannon Estuary leading to the Atlantic ocean. It is at the end of a long private avenue (cul-de-sac). From the privacy and serenity of this garrisoned Irish castle, it is an ideal focal point from which to explore the wild natural beauty of the west of Ireland.

Located between Bunratty Castle & Folk Park and the Aillwee Caves, the Castle is at the heart of traditional Ireland. Chosen by many for special family occasions and gatherings, the exclusive privacy of this vacation rental castle accommodation especially offers peace and tranquillity to those who want to rent an Irish castle to simply have “time out”, and its prime location in Quin, County Clare means that it is adjacent to all attractions for those with a taste for exploring the real traditional Ireland.
