About Ballyhannon Castle

Ballyhannon Castle has been the home to international rock and film stars during film making in Ireland, and you too can rent it exclusively for your own family or group on your next trip to Ireland if you are looking for a ‘once in a lifetime’ experience, and unexpectedly great value for money.

After all, you can stay in a hotel or B&B anywhere in the world, but if you’ve ever wondering what it might be like to live in a real castle, then we highly recommend that when travelling to Ireland you should rent out Ballyhannon Castle all to yourselves. You will be pleasantly surprised that it is amazingly affordable and can, in fact, cost less per person that a hotel. 

Also known as 'Castlefergus' (literally meaning 'Castle on the Fergus River'), near the village of Quin, County Clare, on the west coast of Ireland, it is an incredible example of a restored medieval Irish castle dating back to 1490, before America was even ‘discovered’!

Ballyhannon Castle is one of the most renowned authentic medieval castles in Ireland to rent. In recent years it has proven to be the most popular choice of foreign and Irish tourists alike, whether as a self-catering vacation rental, or a unique backdrop in which to have your wedding or to mark one of life’s special occasions such as your honeymoon, family reunions or other milestone events. 

Although castles may seem the same from the outside (or from pictures on websites), the internal comfort, authentic preservation and design can vary enormously, and we highly recommend that you read the testimonials of previous guests before choosing which to rent, and the reviews for Ballyhannon Castle on TripAdvisor are unequalled. 

The size of your group will certainly determine where you should or can stay, and in Ireland castles for rent typically sleep on average 8 people, whereas at Ballyhannon Castle we can sleep 25+ between the Castle (which sleeps 10+) and the adjacent 19th century Coach House (which sleeps up to another 15+). They can be rented separately or together, and it is almost impossible to find a single venue for groups of up to that number who all want to be together and have the place to themselves rather than sharing with others.

  • Your very own Once Upon a Time .... a unique and special opportunity to create your own special memories
  • An authentic and magical Castle and country house for private rental.
