Time travel does exist! Five hundred years old, ten years in the making and now you can stay the night! Imagine being transported back through five centuries and having a unique, romantic "overknighter" in The Great Hall of our authentic 16th century Irish castle. A sanctuary from the modern world, The Black Castle is nestled amongst the beautiful rolling hills of North Tipperary (it's not such a long way!) with stunning Lough Derg, and all that it has to offer, on our doorstep

Lo spazio
Update: We only offer a limited number of overknighters each year and our 2021 availability is now currently fully booked. We will be opening up the 2022 calendar shortly but if you would like to book a 2022 overknighter in the meantime please feel free to get in touch.

The Black Castle is a wonderful, secluded sanctuary for history and nature lovers, artists, writers, musicians or anyone looking to totally disconnect from the 21st century. Built by the O'Kennedys in the 1500's, its rugged "realm" is surrounded by fields, forestry and ancient woods and bordered by a crystal clear stream. Access is via its own private track , with no passing traffic, just off The Lough Derg Scenic Drive. You will be staying in our authentically furnished Great Hall. The beautiful, bespoke King size bed is fit for royalty with finest linens and quality bedding. Our aspiration is to offer you the most unique, authentic castle experience possible and to recreate the atmosphere of what it would be like to immerse yourself in the 16th century. This means there are all the mod-cons one would expect 500 years ago.... ie there is NO heating (except the open fireplace and hot water bottles), NO TV, NO CD/DVD player and (gasp!) NO Wi-Fi (you'll have a lovely time talking to each other) however there are plenty of books to browse in our "library" and games include replica 18th century playing cards, a delightful Lewis Chess set and a Fidchell (Celtic chess) set . There is NO ELECTRICITY whatsoever in The Great Hall, only the warm glow of candlelight and firelight (we provide the candles and fuel), but staying at The Black Castle doesn't mean you have to go completely back to The Dark Ages as THERE IS ELECTRICITY in the "kitchenette" (a room below The Great Hall) where you can recharge your phone or tablet etc. There's also a mini fridge/freezer, an electric kettle, a DeLonghi coffee machine with a variety of Nespresso coffees provided, two electric induction cooking rings, a Smeg toaster and a sink with hot and cold water. A Continental style breakfast is provided which includes speciality teas, quality coffee, bread, cereals, yogurts, juice, fruit and local produce (where possible). We also provide free range eggs and bacon if you would like to cook yourself a hot breakfast. A welcome hamper, with a sweet treat or two, is also provided. The Great Hall is on the second floor and the only access is by our 16th century stone spiral staircase which means that the Black Castle may unfortunately not be suitable if you have restricted mobility. NB: The "BATHROOM" consists of a DRY ECO TOILET (composting toilet/"gardaloo"© Cody Long ;-) thank you!) with natural, handmade soap and hand towels provided. There is NO SHOWER or BATH at the castle.

Beautiful Lough Derg is just up the road with sailing, fishing and other water sports on offer. Our rural location and dark skies means great stargazing too!

I'm a nature-lovin, tree-huggin Aussie living in Ireland. My Irish husband, Kevin, and I are passionate about Ireland's architectural heritage and we were over the moon when our 400 year old thatched farmhouse was awarded Period Living magazine's Best Restoration (Britain and Ireland) in 2011. Looking for a new restoration challenge, we turned our sights on saving and restoring this beautiful little Irish castle. By choosing to have an overknighter at The Black Castle, the ultimate 16th century experience, you're helping us continue its restoration for future generations to enjoy. Thank you!
