Situated less than an hour from Sligo and Knock airports and about two hours from Dublin Airport, Kilronan Castle is the ideal base from which to explore the magical lake region and Ireland’s rugged West Coast.

A ruined Gothic revival castle on the shores of Lough Meelagh in County Roscommon, a romantic, historic building in a breath-taking location.

Think magic, literary and musical, Kavanagh, Yeats, McGahern, O’Carolan and Percy French, a rich tradition to sample from the perfect base. ‘O commemorate me with no hero-courageous Tomb – just a canal-bank seat for the passer by’ – Patrick Kavangh.

3 star Kilronan Castle is the ancestral home of the Tennisons, who settled in the north of Ireland in the mid- 17th century who built the original castle in 1820 undergoing extensive renovations almost two centuries later (definitely time for some mod cons).
