Turin Castle has five bedrooms, sleeping up to a maximum of twelve adults across five floors.
The ground floor bedroom is a large stone flagged beamed room with deep wall recesses. There is a large ornately carved antique bed, which can also be converted into two singles. Two of the recesses can also be used as additional beds, which makes this an ideal family room. The dedicated shower-room is situated next door.
On the first floor there are two en-suite rooms: one principal vaulted double room with a delightfully romantic king size Rococo bed and a small double/twin room with a double Gothic iron bed.
Once the heart of Medieval life, the great hall has a huge stone fireplace with a vaulted ceiling rising to over 20 feet. There is a beautiful 17th century oak table with ample room for a banquet for ten and the fully equipped kitchen is conveniently situated next door.
An intricately designed minstrel’s gallery spans one end of the hall, just waiting for the musicians to arrive, or failing that, there is a valve amp CD system which takes full advantage of the incredible acoustics.
The fully fitted kitchen, with serving hatch to the hall, is equipped with range cooker, microwave, fridge freezer, dishwasher etc.
Past the old garderobe there is another small double/twin room with a delightful en-suite shower room.
Follow the stairs to the top of the castle and enter the Lord and Lady’s apartment (sitting room). This is a large room, gracefully furnished with antiques and hung with tapestries. The trussed roof was modelled on Dunsoghly Castle and is a masterpiece of craftsman ship, with every rafter and beam hand-crafted and traditionally treated. Hidden behind the bookcase is a ladder, which leads to a secret chamber, where valuables or prisoners would have been held. A large 47 inch TV is dicreetly hidden behind a large tapestry.
The views from the battlements are awe-inspiring! On a clear day one can see for up to 40 miles across the stone walled fields to the Partry and Maamturk Mountains.
Adjacent to the sitting room is a beamed double room with a large four poster bed, lavishly hung with silk embroidered drapes. Set in the window is a free-standing bath, which offers spectacular views of the stone-walled fields and the mountains. The en-suite shower room has a double hand crafted sink unit.
All of the bedrooms are heated by storage heaters, while both the great hall and top sitting rooms have wood-burning stoves. A generous starter
amount of seasoned wood will be supplied.
"My sons and I had the pleasure of staying at Turin Castle a couple weeks ago and I would like to go on record as saying this place is unbelievable!! We were looking for an authentic, Medieval-type setting and Turin fills that bill perfectly while simultaneously affording the creature comforts we have come to appreciate which were cleverly embedded within the surroundings."
