Killaghy Castle

Set in a very serene location less than 300m from Mullinahone Village, Killaghy Castle is a historic Norman castle that dates back to 1206.
The St. Aulyus lived there for 8 years and then erected a stone castle to take the place of the moat and Bailey. This had four floors and a stone spiral stairway.

During Tudor times a long house was added to the rear of the castle. Between this and 1800 two other buildings were added, making Killaghy what it is today.
The original owners were Cromwellian planters by the name of Greene who in turn, through marriage, passed ownership to Despards and in turn to Wright.
The castle has been owned by Watson, Fox, Naughton, Bradshaw, and Sherwood.

Today, the castle serves as a four-star self-catering accommodation available for holiday home hire, group bookings, parties, activity weekends and more.

The main residence of the Killaghy Castle can sleep up to 16 people, with a total of five bedrooms. Three of the rooms include ensuite bathrooms while two have private bathrooms.
There are three cots available for babies.

For enjoying meals in a group setting, the castle has a separate dining room with a large table that can seat up to 16 people.
The kitchen, meanwhile, is well equipped with dishwasher, refrigerator/freezer, hob/over, microwave and washing machine/dryer.

There is also a spacious lounge that is furnished in a traditional manner and includes a large fireplace, which provides warm and cosy ambiance.
Additionally, the castle includes a three-bedroom unit in a separate annex. Standard facilities include central heating, bed linen, towels, hairdryers, satellite TV, DVD player and car parking.

The estate includes a walled garden and tennis courts.

Beyond the castle estate, guests can find good angling, equestrian and walking facilities nearby. Mullinahone Village is just a five-minute walk and has pubs, shops, fishing and more.
