Kilkenny, County Kilkenny
The castle, an ancient seat of the Comerford clan, is a five storey, 16th century towerhouse 8 km south of the medieval city of Kilkenny. The castle has been restored to its former authentic glory using the same techniques and materials as the original 16th century builders. The rooms are larger and the stairs wider than in most of the known square towerhouses.
Modern comforts have been incorporated without detracting from the charm and simple grandeur of this ancient dewlling. This unique and beautiful example of a medieval towerhouse, built for security and status, is still a feature of the Irish landscape.
It is a five storey keep rising to a height of 65 feet. A surprising feature of the Castle is the light. Though narrow, the windows have deep angled sills which deflect the light very efficiently. The Castle is now a luxury self-cate...

A perfect location for our family holiday in Ireland. A truly enchanting castle, refurbished and retaining original character whilst having enough modernity to be comfortable .
We traveled with our four children, ages from six to twenty, and for different reasons all loved the stay. We also had our 2 dogs with us who got plenty of exercise running up and down the 56 steps. Our host was extremely welcoming, telling us of the history of the castle and it's renovation, as well as helping with ideas for local areas to visit.
If you're looking for a 5* hotel with a Michelin starred restaurant , this isn't it. But if you want a unique experience in a rustic and authentic 16th century castle, with dinner served in front of a roaring log fire, wonderful as a base for exploring Southern Ireland, this is perfect,
