Within the walls of this great medieval castle is a house, built of and within the battlements. Your keys are those of the castle. The house has good sized rooms, some of which are 13th Century, and four bathrooms. The stairs are narrow. There is a well equipped kitchen and walled garden. The beach is 100 yards away. This is one of the great holiday homes in Britain - an unusual and comfortable holiday house which is also one of Wales’ most famous castles. One dog allowed by arrangement.
Behind the remaining giant portico of the last great Loughcrew House, built in 1821 by Charles Cockerel and destroyed by fire in 1959, lies what is known as “The Orangery”. Originally built to house large plants and palms and necessary furnaces it is essentially an enormous long room with a wing at each end. The long room provides a fine drawing room and the east and west wings accommodate the kitchen, utilities, bedrooms and bathrooms. This is an amazing house, well equipped and beautifully furnished and decorated by its artistic owner. To the south you look out to the giant portico and surrounding fields. A very short drive will take you to both the Loughcrew Historic Gardens and the monolithic tombs known as the “Loughcrew Cairns”. Dogs allowed.
