The Coach House is adjacent to the Castle
and is the best self catering County Clare has to offer, and
one of the only Irish castles for rent to groups of up to 20+.
It is a magnificently restored 19th Century Coach House of
particular character and size (in excess of 2500 sq.ft.), with
its wooden-beamed ceilings and internal stone walls.

Irish self catering properties are usually modern holiday
homes, but Ballyhannon Castle and Coach House is a self
catering County Clare gem. Irish self catering vacations are
more popular now than ever, and while you can stay in a
holiday home anywhere in the world, how often will you get the
chance to stay in Irish castles for rent on an exclusive
basis, i.e. to your group exclusively!
Guests can get married in the Castle
and hold their reception (meal and festivities) in the
open-plan Coach House where up to 70 can be seated for the
wedding meal. Bigger numbers can also have buffet-style
catering in the Castle or Coach House, or erect marquees on
the surrounding lawns, allowing guests to move freely between
the Coach House and the marquee, when the Castle and/or Coach
House is then the quieter place to relax, chat and mingle,
away from the music and dancing in the marquee.
While the physical structure of the Castle
is challenging for anyone with any physical disabilities, the
Coach House provides disabled self catering accommodation.
The open-plan area of the ground floor consists of a kitchen,
room (with stove) and dining conservatory. There are separate
reading and TV lounges (and the TV lounge is the room which
can also be adapted to cater for disabled self catering
accommodation, as it has its own lavatory, wash hand basin and
Sleeping Accommodation: 10+ between upstairs (2 double
bedrooms, and 1 family bedroom which sleeps four, i.e. with
double bed and bunk beds), while downstairs the TV Lounge
converts to a double bedroom with en-suite for those requiring
disabled self catering accommodation. Futons are also
available for extra bedding.
The first floor also has a bathroom (bath
with hand-held shower extension, wash-hand basin and w.c.),
and an open-plan landing/study lounge which looks out onto
Ballyhannon Castle and courtyard.
Ballyhannon Castle and Coach House together are a unique and
ideal self catering County Clare combination, situated
on 3 acres of privately surrounded
limestone walls and
gates. It is an ideal location for
intimate gatherings such as small
weddings, family reunions, or for
anyone simply seeking solitude.
