My husband and I had a wonderful time at Ballyportry Castle. We were welcomed warmly by Tanya and given a tour of our home for the week. It is a rustic 15th century castle with modern amenities. We found the castle to be warm and inviting, with decorations and furnishings that appeared to be consistent with that time period. We... More

The location of Ballyportry Castle is fairly easy to find and it's an easy drive to many local attractions. We had no trouble finding places to eat and shop and the people in the area were friendly and helpful. Arriving at the Ballyportry Castle you are greeted with its magnificence and yet simple design. This tall, 15th century box style,... More

We had a wonderful week at Ballyportry. The wow effect on seeing the tower appear on the skyline was great. Colleen did a marvellous job as greeter/manager/concierge. The rooms are all special and very comfortable. The fantasic sunset views from the top are worth the climb and you soon get used to the stone steps. I have not seen so... More

If you are looking to rent your very own castle, this is it! Ballyportry takes you back in time with its six stories and amazing Ireland views from the cat walk of the castle. Every room is perfectly appointed and provides comfort and ambiance despite the medieval presence of an authentic 500 year old castle. My friends and I plan... More

Well...Ballyportry does. (And more!) Of course, that might depend on your idea of "castle". If you have a realistic idea of how luxurious" Middle Ages castle... More

The excitement of our arrival to Ballyportry was ear splitting!! There were 8 of us raging from 5 to 77 and we all delighted in the castle. It was just exceptional from start to... More
