Glin Castle, one of Ireland’s most historic properties, has been in the FitzGerald family, hereditary Knights of Glin, for over 700 years. The castle with its superb interiors, decorative plasterwork, and collections of Irish furniture and paintings, stands on the bank of the River Shannon surrounded by formal gardens and parkland and in the middle of 500 acres of wood and dairy farm. One hour’s drive from Shannon airport, half an hour from Ballybunion championship golf course and within easy reach of three other such courses, including the new Greg Norman links course, Doonbeg.

The Ring of Kerry, Dingle Peninsula and the wonders of Co Clare including the Cliffs of Moher and the Burren (via the nearby car ferry) make Glin a superb centre for exploring southwest Ireland. We offer the best in Irish Country House cuisine, using fresh vegetables and fruit from the beautifully kept walled kitchen garden, locally produced meat and poultry and freshly caught fish. Hard tennis court and croquet lawn are in the gardens. Clay pigeon shooting and archery can be arranged on site. Glin Village, which boasts the most traditional pub in Ireland, is at the front gate.
