Reviews

Feedback from previous guests

'Fairytale Wedding'.
The whole day (in fact week) was perfect and the owners pulled out all the stops to make it a day we will always remember.
If you want the full fairytale wedding, then this is the real deal, with a grand hall complete with authentic armour and weapons and a massive grounds for the overspill of guests. The castle is only large enough for the B&G and immediate family, but there is a lot of local hotel accommodation of all types to suit most guests needs.

'A trip back in time'.
Our visit to Turin Castle Ireland was to celebrate 25 years of marriage. It was truly an experience that will remain in our minds forever.
The owners are fantastic. Leaving a nice welcome for my beautiful wife and I to celebrate 25 years. We especially enjoyed our evenings by the fire listening to music and simply taking in the beauty of this trip.

'Wonderful'.
Stayed at Ballinrobe Castle to have a small rural wedding. The castle was far more than I had expected, every one of our guests were amazing and the family who stayed with us were as happy and comfortable as we were. We look forward to returning.

A Great Week in a Great Place'.
Four couples from upstate New York and one from Leicestershire in England spent a week in Ballinrobe Castle.
It was a once in a lifetime experience for us. The couple from England are of Irish heritage and are singers and musicians in the folk clubs there. Suffice it to say that we had some terrific traditional Irish songs in the Great Hall. We had a ceildh with Irish dancing and had a ball in the hall.

'Experiencing Medieval living first-hand!'.
Myself, my husband and 2 friends had a very memorable time! We loved walking in the beautiful, serene countryside surrounding the Castle, and exploring the areas of Mayo and Galway.
The owners greeted us upon our arrival and gave us the initial tour of the Castle. It was truly an unforgettable experience and one that we will remember and share with others for years to come! A great place for families with children!
