“A wonderful resting place!”
Reviewed 27 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

My family and I stayed at Bansha Castle in mid July and it was wonderful. I traveled around Ireland in 2013 for 12 days and stayed at a different location almost every night. I was looking for a central location to travel from to the key places I wanted my family to see as well a separate rooms with bathrooms for each couple or family member. For these reasons I chose Bansha Castle. The seven bedrooms were large and well appointed and each had its own bathroom.
My cousin is a chef and he cooked all the meals and many dinners on the new grill. Thank you John! He thought the kitchen was well stocked with the nessecary equipment (pots, pans, utensils, and serving prices). The billiard table was enjoyed almost every evening by my competitive family.
We were able to get to Old Head golf course, the Ring of Kerry, the Cliffs of Mohre, Ballybunion golf course, and Kilkenny in less than 2 hours from Bansha Castle.
John and Teresa were wonderful hosts. We only saw them when we needed to. They invited our group of 9 over for wine and appetizers one evening during our stay and it was lovely.
If you want to be able to say to stayed in a castle while in Ireland chose Bansha Castle. It provided my family with a beautiful resting place for a wonderful trip that will be fondly remembered by all.
Thank you John and Teresa!

“Absolutely stunning”

This is very beaturiful place to stay. Very specious. One major benefit is the unlike many European vacation this place has all bedrooms with en suite bathroom except one.

Rooms are specious. Lots of natural light in all rooms. There is huge lawn. There is lot of common area within the property viz. living room, library etc. They also have backyard with sitting arrangement.

Owners are very very helpful.

Few things to keep mind is Bansha is name of small town and there are other properties with similar names like Bansha House etc.

Town is small. We did not find any major grocery store nearby. Nearest TESCO or LIKD is about 7//8 km away, though it is not a big problem.

Most attaractions are about 45 min to 2 hours away.

From Dublin it took us about 2.5 hours to reack. Cork airport is nearer but Dublin has more international connections.

“A perfect mix of new and old”
Reviewed 20 April 2014 for a stay in April 2014

We have just spent a long weekend at Bansha Castle and it has everything you could ask for. John and Teresa made us feel very welcome indeed, the house was very clean and very comfortable indeed. Real log fires, out door seating with heating, well equipped kitchen and ensuite bathrooms with wonderful beds and bedding. A real homely feel, yet its a mansion. We do this every year, staying at different places and this has to be one of the best...the space just works and there is plenty of room everywhere.
Thanks very much for a brilliant stay...I wouldnt hesitate to book it again and recommend thoroughly.

“Another great stay at Bansha”
Reviewed 8 April 2014 for a stay in March 2014

This was our third trip to Bansha Castle and yet again we had a fantastic time. Each time we've had a different group, and all have been very impressed with the house, the bedrooms, the quality of the house and the friendliness of the owners, John and Teresa.

The village is literally at the end of the drive and the local pubs are fantastic. Walks in the nearby mountains are a great way to shake off the cobwebs.

Cannot recommend this highly enough. You won't be disappointed.

“3 years in a row- another great stay”
Reviewed 3 February 2014 for a stay in January 2014

We have stayed at Bansha Castle 3 years in a row now. A group of friends we meet up once a year for a weekend away. Bansha Castle ticks all the right boxes and is the perfect location for a get together. Our hosts John and Teresa are great fun and we had a lovely drink with them on the Saturday evening. Bansha Castle is also dog friendly and our dog had a ball and even made some new friends! The only problem was that the trip was too short. Looking forward to next year.
