Kinnitty Castle Hotel
There is drama, there is history, there is elegance and there is theatre. All of these blend seamlessly in and around Kinnitty Castle Hotel, which is situated close to the picture-perfect village of Kinnitty, County Offaly.
Set against a backdrop of the Slieve Bloom Mountains, the Gothic Revival castle is in Ireland’s only designated ‘Environment Park’, sitting centre stage in an impressive 650 acres of rural parkland – including 60 acres of gardens, unspoiled forests and rustic walks.
The Castle has a long and turbulent histroy. Dating from 1209, the Castle was destroyed and rebuilt not once but twice but yet retains its original character and charm. The Castle even has has its own ghost- a monk no less!
Kinnitty Castle Hotel is situated just 90 minutes from Dublin and even less from Limerick & Galway and is an ideal resting point for potential journeys west or southwards. An exceptional place for lovers of excellent food and the call of the wild, it has a unique character that can suitably be described as ‘Olde Worlde’.
