From the Cashman Suite situated at the very top of the castle in The Round Tower, with its free-standing bath and 360-degree views of the estate, to the elegant Lady Elizabeth Suite with its floral patterns and wonderful natural daylight overlooking the Killeshin Hills, our castle bedrooms are spacious and just decadent enough to be fun.

Our Drawing Room, Cosy Castle Bar and Grand Banquet Hall are yearning to be filled with fun and laughter and are yours to entertain in as you see fit. Allow our Event Team and Executive Chef Ronnie Wolf to create a bespoke itinerary that will enhance your Castle experience and wow your guests.
