About Ballynagowan

Ballynagowan Castle, built by the last King of Munster and Earl of Thomond and Inchiquine more than 5 centuries ago and last inhabited in mid 19th century, has now been restored to provide a historic self-catering holiday past and present, ancient stone and features paired with all the comfort of 21st century.

On grounds of almost 5 acres, the romantic castle is situated on a rock eminence surrounded by a peak with mature trees and the river Deelagh, gently flowing in a lovely glen of rich vegetation.


We had a wonderful time. It was a truly great Finish for our trip to Ireland. I have save the information and the next time we come to Ireland we will be in touch. The word is spreading in the USA, as we are telling everyone who will listen about your castle. I would certainly recommend your accommodations. Please feel free to give anyone my e-mail address. We did enjoy ourselves.

Martin was a great host. He was very helpful and friendly. We were very pleased with his assistance. He did a great job in explaining everything about the castle and the local area. You are lucky to have such a good "gatekeeper".

Again we really did enjoy our 3 nights and as I said I would be happy to recommend your castle.

The Great Hall

"The castle was absolutely beautiful, friendly and very warm throughout the holiday. At night we all felt like kings and queens sat around the medieval fireplace with roaring fire. It was perfect and an unforgettable winter break.

We had a fantastic time at Ballynagowan castle & in Ireland generally. Beautiful country and very friendly people."
