Ballybur Castle

Castle in Ireland, Leinster- East

Description

Ballybur Castle, the ancient seat of the Comerford clan, is a five storey 16th century towerhouse 8 km south of the medieval city of Kilkenny.

The castle has been restored to it's former authentic glory using the same techniques and materials as the original 16th century builders. The rooms are larger and the stairs wider than in most of the known square towerhouses.

Modern comforts have been incorporated without detracting from the charm and simple grandeur of this ancient dewlling. A unique and beautiful example of a medieval towerhouse, built for security and status, and is still a feature of the Irish landscape.

8 km from Kilkenny
64 km from Waterford
120 km from Limerick, Cork and Dublin

Address: Ballybur Castle, Ballybur Lane, Cuffsgrange, Kilkenny, Ireland

It is a five storey keep with external dimensions of 38x30 feet, rising to a height of 65 feet. A surprising feature of Ballybur Castle is the light. Though narrow, the window have deep angled sills which deflect the light very efficiently.

Ballybur Castle is now a luxury self-catering holiday home where you can have an unforgettable stay, where full cleaning and catering can be arranged. It is a thrilling adventure for younger and older people. It is also ideal for that special occasion, such as a small or big wedding, honeymoon, discreet corporate meetings, gala dinners, murder mystery weekends, exhibitions, or just a swell party
