My sons and I had the distinct pleasure of staying at Turin Castle a couple weeks ago and I would like to go on record as saying this place is unbelievable!! We were looking for an authentic, medieval-type setting and Turin fills that bill perfectly while simultaneously affording the creature comforts we have come to appreciate which were cleverly embedded within the surroundings. The second you step in to the castle, you feel transported back thousands of years so you are able to imagine what life was like back then. The outside setting is quite beautiful and pastoral with lovely landscaped gardens, walkways and seating areas. The "music" of the neighboring livestock is very pleasing and cathartic to the soul. The owners, Brendan and Marnie, were just delightful and transactions were a simple ordeal and so worth every penny. I cannot say enough wonderful things about this place. If an authentic castle stay in Ireland is something you've dreamed of, as we did, this is the venue to go to. We are already planning a return trip.
