Ballyhannon Castle is an EXPERIENCE, not just an accommodation!
(see our Local Attractions page for more videos on our heritage, culture & local activities)
Ballyhannon Castle in Quin, County Clare, on the west coast of Ireland is one of the most renowned authentic medieval castles in Ireland to rent, whether as a self catering vacation rental, or in which to have your castle wedding or to mark one of life’s special occasions.
Dating back to the late 15th century, in recent years it has proven to be the most popular choice of foreign and Irish tourists alike, for both catered events and self catering accommodation.
Known locally as Castlefergus, in the Irish Governmental records it is registered as a National Monument and "Listed/Protected" structure, intended to protect its historic, architectural and aesthetic significance. It is indeed fortunate that we, the current owners, take great care of it and are in a position to allow it to continue to be among the few castles in Ireland to rent on an exclusive basis for the likes of weddings, honeymooners, family reunions or other milestone events, or just for those who wish to have the unique experience of having an entire real medieval Irish castle privately to themselves.
In Ireland castles for rent are not all the same. Although they may seem so from the outside (or from pictures on websites), their internal comfort, preservation and design can vary enormously, and we highly recommend that you read the testimonials of previous guests before choosing which to rent, and the reviews for Ballyhannon Castle on TripAdvisor.com are unequalled (click here to view them).
You can stay in a hotel anywhere in the world, but we highly recommend that when travelling to Ireland castles for rent are where you should stay, and none moreso than at Ballyhannon Castle for an authentic life experience and value for money.
The size of your group will also determine where you should or can stay, and in Ireland castles for rent sleep on average 8 people, whereas at Ballyhannon Castle we can sleep 25+ between the Castle and the Coach House. This is almost impossible to find for groups of up to that number who all want to be together and have the place to themselves rather than sharing with others.
