Killahara Castle, set among the hills of Tipperary, is a restored 16th Century tower house, offering comfort and tranquility within its ancient walls. It has a large fully equipped kitchen, a lounge with a huge fireplace and seven bedrooms (five double and two single) plus two additional camp beds for overflow. The three bathrooms, tucked away within the old garderobes, provide showers in a unique setting.

The ancient spiral stairs, unchanged for hundreds of years, and trodden by the likes of Black Jack Fogarty, take you up through the five floors of the castle.
