Bansha Castle

Castle -
7 Bedrooms , 7 Bathrooms , Sleeps 18
Bansha, County Tipperary
This lovely old country house, dating from the 18th century, is set in private grounds with mature gardens, backed by the beautiful Glen of Aherlow and the famous Galtee mountains. Once owned by General Sir William Butler, the Butlers of Ormond crest is still evident on the façade of the Round Tower, highlighting the rich heritage of this unique residence.

Bansha Castle is a perfect location for historical and cultural pursuits. Bansha lies at the centre of the heritage trail; The Rock of Cashel, Holycross Abbey and the Medieval City of Kilkenny are all near by.

Prefer something less energetic? Why not pamper yourself with a massage or beauty treatment in the comfort of your own room. Your hosts will be happy to make all the arrangements.

Don't feel like cooking every night? The owners occupy a completely separate wing to the main...

About the neighbourhood
The Glen of Aherlow is a quiet country valley, secluded but not isolated. It stretches from the N24, South of the heritage town of Tipperary, through sixteen miles of unspoilt countryside affording some of the most breathtaking scenery imaginable.

The Glen sits between the Galtee mountains on the south and the Slievenamuck Ridge on the North. The Galtees, Irelands highest inland mountain range, boast five spectacular corrie lakes, dominated by a variety of magnificent peaks including Galteemore at 3,018 ft. This expansive vista is further enhanced by the many streams cascading down the face of the mountain. The foothills are forested as is the 12 miles of the Slievenamuck ridge, providing the walker with a variety of delightful woodland trails.

As well as walking there are also opportu...
