Castle Stay Near Limerick

My wife and will be renting a home in Limerick for the last 2 1/2 weeks in September and I thought I'd surprise her with a night or two stay in a castle. Any suggestions? We have a vehicle, but I don't want to have to drive more than an hour or 2 to get there. Thank-you for any comments or suggestions to this romantically-challenged husband...

1. Re: Castle Stay Near Limerick

As far as I am aware, Glin Castle has closed for accommodation following the death of the last knight. However I am open to correction if anyone has any better information.

The other castle accommodation in the area are Adare Manor and Dromoland Castle. Both are manor houses.

Kinnity Castle Hotel in Birr is a genuine castle and is taking accommodation bookings. However there have been a number of management changes in recent years and I am unsure as to how it is currently http://www.kinnittycastlehotel.com/

For something romantic, that is about 2.5 hours away, Ard na Sidhe House is fabulous http://www.ardnasidhe.com/ This is situated on Caragh Lake on the Iveragh (Ring of Kerry) Peninsula and is in a fabulous location.

Others may well have far better suggestions.
