About the property

C15th Irish castle near the cliffs of Moher

Overview:

Enjoy tranquility, privacy, peace, solitude and location at Smiths Castle! Indulge yourself in an authentic C15th Irish castle with a fascinating history, set away from the busy roads on almost 5 acres of mature grounds overlooking a river valley on the West coast of Ireland.

The castle sits in one of the best possible locations in the West of Ireland. Only a few miles from the castle you will find the longest sand beaches in Ireland, the world famous Cliffs of Moher, the ferry to the Aran Islands, 2 championship golf courses and the most Western spa in Europe. The property lies within the unique Burren landscape with its rare flora, prehistoric monuments of international importance and so much more!

Interior and Grounds:

The banqueting hall is large, with a 17th century richly carved table, comfortably seating eight, inviting you for candlelit dinners. The integrated rustique fitted kitchen is fully equipped with all you need to create an opulent knights banquet, including a good range of cooking and serving utensils. Electric stove and microwave, fridge-freezer, dishwasher, washing machine/dryer all there to make sure you don't miss the convenience of home. The great hall was once upon a time the king's living room with magnificent original gothic fireplace.

Upstairs the minstrels gallery overlooks the great hall, with great views and a romantic sleeping area for two. There are also three cosy double bedroom chambers, a good sized bath room and two shower rooms.

All rooms are centrally/underfloor heated. Furniture is kept in luxurious antique style throughout. There is also a radio/CD player in both, the banqueting hall and the great hall as well as a TV in all bedrooms.

About Oliver's Travels - UK

Simply Chateau was set up in 2003 after two old school chums enjoyed a fantastic holiday with friends in a French chateau in the Dordogne. Oliver & Ravi, the two directors of the company, were amazed at what terrific value these stunning chateau rentals represented and decided to spread the word. Soon after the website www.simplychateau.com was born.

Today we deliver a wide range of luxury villas, private chateau and charming farmhouses throughout France, Italy, Spain, the UK and the Caribbean. We have something for everyone from charming manor houses representing great value for money to fully catered & serviced luxury chateau, all handpicked and chosen with care. Bookings are made direct with the owner of your chosen property to guarantee you get the best booking price available.

Dream Come True!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we arrived at the gate, all of our dreams had been surpassed. The caretaker, Angela, made this stay even more magical. The castle instantly transports you back in time but with all of the hidden modern conveniences. The stay could not have been more perfect. The fireplace in the grand hall was phenomenal. This was the heart of our nightly Jamesons night cap as the family sat around with the peat burning. We will never be able to top this vacation! We will definitely be back!! Hidden gem of Western Ireland.
