It is frequent that some castles that are in private hands end up becoming charming hotels. Thanks to this, we have wonderful castle hotels in the world where you can stay and live a different experience, imagining how the first inhabitants of these premises may have felt.
There are many types of castle hotels. Some have been renovated and preserve the essence of the past but with all the comforts of modern life. Others have frozen time as far as possible, keeping all the original elements they could to provide a greater authenticity to the place.
Of course, we also find castle hotels that are one hundred percent modern and have been created to give the sensation of being old and majestic, but we know that they are modern buildings.
In any of them, the decoration is fundamental to create that atmosphere that you want to transmit to the clients and that makes them leave the lodging totally satisfied, thus becoming the best ambassadors of their facilities when talking about them to their friends, in their social networks or in the specialized pages in hotels.
This castle converted into a hotel is located in County Mayo, Ireland. If you fall in love with what you see, you can rent one of its rooms for an approximate price of 550 euros a night, which includes the possibility of enjoying its elegant spa.
Its rooms have the stately look you would expect from a castle. With views of the gardens and even of a beautiful lake, its decoration is exquisite and classic. The canopy beds, the vaulted windows, the bathroom with marble and stone in all its pieces, or the carefully chosen decorative details make staying in this place an absolutely exquisite experience.
The common areas make us think of other times, with their classic furniture, their worked woods, and the precious lamps that illuminate the rooms giving them a very special light. The dining rooms and the tea room deserve a special mention.
Everything fits perfectly into this select environment that will make you feel as if you were traveling back in time from the first moment you see the building from outside. However, there is no lack of modernity within its walls, as all the rooms have a good Wi-Fi connection.
The castle’s beautiful gardens are the ideal setting for weddings and other celebrations, so it’s not uncommon to come across classic Irish pipers hired to liven up some of these events.
