I recently visited the place for a friend’s 40th Birthday.
We didn’t know where we were going for it was a “Secret Location”.
The whole place looks amazing and was well worth the long travel!
The grounds, the buildings, the rooms, the art and the deco is to die for.
The place is fully loaded and among other things has a fully loaded bar, and gym, and I love that I could get on with my training program.
We really, really, really loved it and we are definitely coming back.
Thank you for your hospitality.
What a stunning place to have stayed in to celebrate my 40th birthday! Beautiful decor and lovely ambiance. This place is a dream come true. Every single room has its own unique style and charm. We had a wonderful stay in this well stocked home away from home, thank you for having us.
What can I say? Pictures don’t do it justice. House is beautiful funky and fun. Grounds are gorgeous. Beds so comfortable and easily fit the 25 of us no stretch. Highly recommend this to anyone!
Had the most amazing time at The Castle and can not wait to come back. The whole house is fabulous. James looked after us very well as did the owners sister who is just lovely. If you want special then you visit Glen Cho Breagha, just so so wonderful. Food amazing drink fab hosts brill, thank you for such a great time and making memories.
Our stay here was beyond our expectations. From the moment we arrived, until our departure, every need and request was attended to. The chef created an outstanding menu, both informal and a more formal evening. Our dealings with the owner, Nikki and her team here at was a delight. We would not hesitate to return to this beautiful house in such stunning surroundings.
No need to do anything else but spend time at the house while you’re there. While is there much beauty and character in the surrounding area, just being in such a unique and abundant environment is sure to keep you occupied.
Also… Make sure to jump in the river! Yes it’s cold, but it’s worth it.
