Our group of ten adults (three generations) spent an amazing week in mid-August. The castle is beautiful with seven rooms - each of which has its own restroom. The kitchen is great if you like to cook and the Russels preset the dining room table. We loved the heated and covered porch in the back. We spend many evenings sipping... More

I have just returned from Bansha Castle where I stayed with my extended family for a week. My brother and I did hours of research before settling on Bansha and, boy, did we strike gold. The house itself is beautiful, of historical interest and sits in its own, extensive gardens which are perfect to allow the children to run riot... More

Our week long stay at Bansha Castle was near- perfect. The castle is just the right balance of elegance and comfort. Our family of 14 (10 months to 70 years) had a marvelous time while staying there. The bedrooms were beautiful, large and comfortable. The common areas were spacious and inviting. The kitchen was large and well-equipped. We loved the... More

Just returned from a magical week in Bansha Castle. Our gathering of family and friends was to celebrate my 50th birthday (plus a couple of other family celebrations for good measure) and I can honestly say that the entire stay surpassed my (hopefully high) expectations and made reaching this milestone a truly happy and fun event. John and Teresa are... More

Our family spent close to a week at this idyllic property in May 2014 and our hosts John and Teresa couldn't have been more accommodating. Ideal accommodation for family groups with 7 large bedrooms all with own facilities and plenty of privacy. Had planned to have dinner and breakfast on our first night due to arrival times, but the breakfast... More

A group of 15 of us stayed here for a conference about blogging (BlogHouse by Navigate Media). The Bansha Castle offered everything we could have needed. The kitchen was charming, spacious and well equipped. The dinning room offered a great place to conduct meetings and the owners even prepared meals for us at lunch time. Each bedroom was charming and... More

Three generations of my family stayed there for a week in April, 2014. Our ages ranged from 3 1/2 to 68 (with 5 children 7and under). It was the perfect setup for a large group. The kitchen was ideal for breakfasts whenever anyone wandered downstairs and the young mothers appreciated the washer and dryer. We could walk to the local... More

The building is gorgeous, and the rooms spectacular all immaculately prepared for our stay. There were 19 of us and all from youngest to eldest loved it. The facilities are excellent... More

Stayed here for a weekend family celebration for my fathers 80th. From the moment we contacted Bansha Castle about rental, John & Teresa have been nothing but attentive from the organisation of the weekend through to the hosting. We had a large party ranging from infants to grandparents and everyone was extremely well catered for. The house provides a wonderful... More

Bansha Castle is just amazing, such a beautiful place. The Castle is as warm and inviting as the owners, could not find a fault if i tried. Thank you so much Teresa and John for an awesome weekend. You truly are fantastic hosts. I would recommend a visit. You will regret nothing. :)
