13th century castle,
Located in County Wexford,
Four luxury suites available individually, or exclusively for 16 people, on a self-catered, or bed and breakfast basis.
Situated on the banks of the Boro River, which rises at the foot of the Blackstairs Mountains in the heart of County Wexford, Wilton Castle is surrounded by open parkland and quiet wooded countryside. A part of the local landscape since 1247, when the first fortified tower was built on the land, Wilton Castle has been transformed and is now able to rent and stay in once again.
Pistol duels, fire, landed families and civil war, Wilton Castle and its surrounding lands have had a long and varied history. The grounds were opened to the public in the 1800s, which prompted one observer in 1852 to write that 'not only are strangers permitted to walk over the grounds but even their horses are cared for.' These times are long gone but you can enjoy the tranquillity of this wonderful part of Ireland and the sumptuous interiors that Wilton offers again.
Although visitors now travel to Wilton Castle by modern means, this beautiful castle with its soaring chimney stacks and turreted towers will draw you in and leave an imprint on your life. Wilton Castle has been lovingly restored from ruin by its present owner (well half of it!) and can now be enjoyed as a private self-catering hire, ideal for family holidays, weddings and celebrating those special occasions like a significant birthday or event. The castle will sleep up to 14 people very comfortably and is also available for bed and breakfast accommodation outside the peak holiday season.
