The Tower House

We will take you on a tour of our incredible and unique Medieval Tower House which has been lovingly restored using traditional methods such as lime mortar and using our own oak from the woods. There is an opportunity to enjoy fabulous entertainment in the tower during your stay!

The Tower House is not included for general use in the rental price. There is an option to use the Tower for unique entertainment experiences with something to suit everyone. For example “A night of Irish traditional music and dancing” “An Irish storytelling session with a Seanchai” “A period costume evening with banquet”  “ A whiskey tasting session at the upstairs bar” “ A Movie night”

You can experience these packages without having to leave the estate, meaning no need to rent a minibus to take the group out and no one has to drive and therefore everyone can enjoy a drink and/or relax without worrying about the journey back.  The Tower house is an incredible atmospheric space and the unique setting will make for great memories and stories to be told for years to come.
