"Stop Looking - This is the Best Castle!"
We rented Ballyhannon Castle for my 40th birthday. It was perfect in every way. The trip of two lifetimes, really. The castle is brilliant, the coach house magnificent, County Clare without peer, and hosts Margaret & Liam a dream come true. That was in 2006. And we came back. We took our 3 girls to Ireland for Christmas this year (they were 5, 3 and a gleam back in 2006) and stayed at Ballyhannon again. It is even better now, with new heaters, WiFi and other updates, but the same 500-year old magical ambiance. Margaret and Liam are as vibrant and wonderful as ever. So stop looking. This is it. This is the one. Ballyhannon Castle. You will love it.
