Nestled on the shores of the river for which the castle is named, Ballynahinch Castle exudes rustic elegance. This iconic Irish country house was built in 1754 and constructed on the same site of an older 16th-century castle. Interestingly, the older castle was once under the dominion of Grace O’Malley, Ireland’s infamous Pirate Queen.
Sitting on a 700-acre estate complete with lush woods, pretty lakes and open bogland, the castle was converted into a gentlemen’s shooting and fishing lodge in the 1850s. It was later owned by the Maharaja of Nawanager, a keen sportsman and cricket player.
Tucked into the foothills of the impressive Twelve Bens mountain range, Ballynahinch Castle captures the wild spirit of the Connemara region. Known for its simple luxury and excellent service, the estate serves as a perfect escape for enthusiasts of the great outdoors by enticing guests with a vast array of on-site activities coupled with the stunning outdoor playground of Connemara National Park on the castle’s doorstep.
