Located on the North-east shore of Lough Corrib the castle was originally built in the 13th century by Adam Gaynard and occupied by the Gaynard family for 10 generations until the 17th century when George Staunton acquired the castle and the lands. It remained in his family until 1946, when it became a ruin. Mush of the stonework was demolished to make lime for the construction of the nearby Georgian Mansion. Now restored to its former glory with 13th century materials, it is a rare example of a medieval hall house. Surrounded by seven acres of lawns, meadows and woodland on the shore of one of Ireland's most beautiful lakes, the setting is idyllic. Boating and fishing available on the premises and may be hired. The castle is offered for self-catering holidays throughout the year.
