Visit this 500 year old Medieval tower house, standing strongly on the southern shore of Roaringwater Bay, County Cork, Ireland.

Rincolisky is a three-bedroom and two-bathroom castle, sleeping up to seven people, with stunning panoramic sea views.

Originally a five-storey tower house dating back to 1495, Rincolisky Castle is now a perfect family retreat, set amongst the dramatic southern-Irish landscape. This Irish self-catering castle provides a cosy open-plan setting, thanks to the underfloor heating and traditional AGA range installed during the extensive restoration, to those adventurers looking to explore County Cork.

Renovated in 2000 by Stefanie Jaax, the castle's current owner, the aim of Rincolisky Castle's development was to combine the castle's rich Irish heritage with a contemporary slant.

Both the ground floor and first floor were restored in an authentic style, using original building materials, ensuring the rough structures and finish on the outer-walls were kept intact. On the roof is a newly built glass apartment, accessible through an inner-wall staircase, with westerly-facing views of the picturesque Roaringwater Bay.
