A must for your family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Killaghy Castle lived up to expectations and surpassed others! Marie walcomed our family (10 of us) and was so gracious and helped us wiyh anything we needed! The castle is spacious with plenty of room for a large family and extremely comfortable. The grounds are breathtaking. We walked up to a local pub and the owner was also very welcoming. There is a local convenience store in walking distance from the castle. My brother has been to Ireland several times and said Killaghy Castle was one of his favorite locations! Highly recommend!

Marie and Pat ensure that you are welcomed and comfortable in this home away from home.

  • 5 of 5

Situated in central County Tipperary, the Castle is a tranquil retreat that your family or group can relax in or escape to. It also accomdates activity outings to Roch of Cashel, Cahir Castle, Kilkenny Castle or Warerford City.

Our multi-generation family appreciated the Castle's historical character and comforts of modern life, as well as the ample living space and outdoor room to run and play for children (ages 6 - 15) in the expansive walled garden.

We would return again and again.

Beautiful quiet spacious home

  • 5 of 5

Killaghy Castle was a wonderful place for our family vacation. We enjoyed the location and the home was comfortable with plenty of space for all 19 of us. The nearby village was charming and friendly. The kitchen was fully stocked with everything we needed. The country setting was beautiful and extremely quiet. There were plenty of beds and bathrooms for everyone and the living room and dining room had seating for all of us. Marie was extremely helpful in answering questions and helping us organize our activities. She even arranged for a birthday cake so we could celebrate while we were there. She was not in our space but was available when we needed her for questions.

Very nice cooking area, but the house was not clean for most preferences.

  • 2 of 5

The area was beautiful. Flies, webs, and insect nests were on drapery, and prolific everywhere. The master-bedroom even had mold on the drapes.

The main area set-in showers were extremely small. One of the two larger (newer) showers was not usable, as it leaked to the floor below, an apparent problem before we arrived because a rug was hanging outside the window.

No one was readily available to attend immediate issues, though family was staying in an apartment on the property. Fortunately, I was able to figure out where the fuse box was when one was tripped when a bulb hanging uncovered (there were others just hanging from wires) was broken.

Of the 11 in our group, everyone was disappointed in the condition of the house, though the land/nature was lovely.

Owner's Response: Clint Thanks for writing review as regards flies and bees when the big windows are left open all day they come in as there is all rose bushes outside windows.All those windows were dusted and cleaned by window cleaner before your arrival.As mould in lining of front drapes guests left windows opened before going touring and pulled drapes closed to keep sun out and there was a thunder shower and they got damp new drapes were ordered and are up this week.Ye had my phone number to ring anytime day or night as your daughter told me your grandson had a tummy bug and in case he wanted to go to hospital I said ring me anytime I would drive ye.As regards bulbs when ye rang there was maintance man on way in but your wife said you had found fuse box.All wiring is checked very year by electrician for insurance cover safety as regards bulbs hanging from cords that's there design with shades under them.The towel that was on shower door was extra mat to put on floor I think the shower head may have been positioned wrong as there has been no leakage this week.It was your daughter friend that recommended the castle to you that stayed previous year and the points you raised have been attended to. Thanking you Maria

Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5

Seventeen of us arrived at Killaghy Castle for a two week stay. Maria was there to welcome us giving us the history of the castle and providing us with other points of interest is the area. She gave us her phone number to contact her anytime if we needed anything re bus hire, restaurants etc. This was very reassuring for us as we had little local knowledge of the area. The accommodation was wonderful and beyond our expectations. We had central heating which was at our control and an open fire in the living room. The castle has a great culinary kitchen and dining room which we gathered in everyday for our meals. The kitchen was stocked with every utensils that one may need. The living room was comfortable and spacious with plenty of seating for our group. Killaghy Castle is ideally located. We made trips to Kilkenny, Cashel, the Cliffs of Moher, Killarney and Galway. We had a great family reunion and vacation and the location and hosts made this a once in a lifetime experience.

50th Wedding Anniversary

  • 5 of 5

We wanted to spend our 50th wedding anniversary with our family somewhere special. What came to mind was a castle in Ireland. We knew the grandchildren would love it. Could we find such a place. After some searching we found Killaghy Castle. Just the drive in to the private grounds up to the castle this place had already exceeded our expectations.The farm setting just added to the whole experience.The castle had everything we needed. The private patio grounds in the back was ideal for a late afternoon glass of wine while the kids ran around. The location was ideal for getting around and being so close to Kilkenny was a bonus. Make sure to visit the butcher shop in Mullinhone. Small, friendly and if he does not have what your looking for he will do his best to get it. Marie, thank you for an unforgettable adventure.
