The East Tower
The East Tower wing of the castle is a fully self-contained family home. The bedrooms and bathrooms are each individual and are furnished with an eclectic collection of antique and modern furniture collected by the family from all over the world.
The East Tower at Springfield castle has 5 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms and accommodates 10 guests. There are 4 double rooms and one twin single bedded room. Approaching the castle up the 3/4 mile long avenue you will swing to the right as you approach and enter through an archway to a private courtyard with a wonderful fountain in the centre and encircled by the stone walls and buildings, some dating back to the Norman times in Ireland. There are magnificent stone steps leading to the front door.
“We had an amazing time! What a one of a kind celebration in a lifetime to remember magical and mystical spot. From the day we walked in to the day we are leaving the castle changes and sparkles with some new surprise. We even had some ghastly ghostly experiences! We were so grateful for your complete hospitality, the “Springfield Team” was wonderful and made us feel like Irish royals living on this beautiful farm. The Mac Donald clan.”
Inside is a bright welcoming hallway with classic black and white tiles. To your left are the cloakrooms and to your right the delightful dining room with beautiful old pine floor, and vast curved windows with a view of the Norman Tower House. The dining table can seat up to 25 people. The Kitchen is large, stylish, and modern, but with a flagstone floor and a table that seats 12. The underfloor heating keeps the room warm and welcoming all day. The kitchen door leads out onto a large patio facing west with barbeque and herb garden and a fire pit. It is a lovely area to sit on a sunny evening. Upstairs the huge living room is elegantly and comfortably furnished. It has WIFI access. Downstairs there is an amazing basement room, which we call the “pub” although it’s up to you to stock it with beverages! We can supply with your own keg of Guinness. It features stone walls built on to the foundation rocks hewn from the limestone hill on which the castle stands. A great room for a party! It has a solid oak medieval style castle door leading to a private garden.
On the premises are leisure facilities including a, full sized snooker/billiard table, table tennis, a hard court tennis court, boules, archery and our newly installed hot tub. When you choose Springfield for your exclusive Irish Castle stay you will enjoy its seclusion and tranquil grounds, and it is also ideally suited for day visits to the best attractions in South West Ireland.
