Visit Kilkea Castle

Kilkea Castle is currently closed to visitors. Converted into a hotel in the 20th century, it unfortunately suffered the crisis of 2008, and is currently closed and offered for sale.

This will prevent you from visiting the interior for the moment. However, you will be able to admire its exterior facade, with its typical Anglo-Norman architecture, built by Hugues de Lacy in 1180. Moreover, a strange legend is said to have been told about the castle: Garrett Og Fitzgerald, one of the owners of the building, is said to have indulged in magic within the castle… Enough to feed our imagination!
