Step back in time at Smiths Castle, a 15th century Irish castle renovated for modern holidays. Here, you can find peace and quiet on almost 5 acres of mature grounds overlooking a river valley but travel easily to all that County Clare’s west coast has to offer.
Just a few miles away, you can walk the longest sand beaches in Ireland, marvel at the breathtaking Cliffs of Moher, take a ferry to the rugged Aran Islands or play golf at two championship courses. Spend a day at the Lisdoonvarna spa, and make sure to explore the unique Burren landscape. Its “fertile rock,” limestone, hosts rare flora and fauna as well as prehistoric monuments.
After your explorations, gather for a candlelit dinner in the large banqueting hall with a 17th century carved wooden table. With 3 cosy double bedrooms and romantic sleeping for two in the minstrels gallery overlooking the great hall, the castle sleeps 8. You’ll find antique furniture in every room, but updated bathrooms and kitchen, as well as TVs in the bedrooms.
This Irish castle is 45 minutes from Shannon Airport and near the N67 and N85 roadways, 2.5 miles from Kilfenora.
The banqueting hall is large, with a 17th century richly carved table, comfortably seating eight, inviting you for candlelit dinners. The integrated rustique fitted kitchen is fully equipped with all you need to create an opulent knights banquet, including a good range of cooking and serving utensils. Electric stove and microwave, fridge-freezer, dishwasher, washing machine/dryer all there to make sure you don’t miss the convenience of home. The great hall was once upon a time the king’s living room with magnificent original gothic fireplace.
Upstairs the minstrels gallery overlooks the great hall, with great views and a romantic sleeping area for two. There are also three cosy double bedroom chambers, a good sized bath room and two shower rooms.
All rooms are centrally/underfloor heated. Furniture is kept in luxurious antique style throughout. There is also a radio/CD player in both, the banqueting hall and the great hall as well as a TV in all bedrooms.
