Renting historic buildings..

Postby the_power on Fri Oct 30, 2009 4:16 pm

Anyone know of a castle/fortified house in Ireland that'll sleep more than 70 people ? I was hoping for something more upmarket than Foulksrath (AKA cost not an issue). Seems no place sleeps more than 30 or so.

Doubt anywhere is big enough John. Listed buildings tend to been family homes or the billets have long since been destroyed.
Restored to Hotel or hostel quality is most likely but then it's a hotel not an atmospheric building. Foulksrath manages a balance between old and modern.

Would castle with camping in the grounds be a substitute? We rented Ballaghmore castle for my 30th and it has 30 acres about it.
If money's no object the whole lot is on the market for €2 million.
