Ashford Castle

Ashford Castle

There are many great reasons to visit Ireland, one of them being famous castles to tour and visit. Ireland has its fair share is incredible castles and manor houses. It also has many very old castle ruins if you prefer the ruins variety.

Below is a collection of the finest manor houses and castles in Ireland. We don’t include many ruins, instead opting to showcase structures still in use. Some are still private residences while others are luxury accommodations. After all, not many people can afford the upkeep of a huge castle these days unless fortunes remained in tact through the generations.  Check out Ashford Castle above and below; the heating bill alone is not affordable for most people… but it sure is a spectacular castle rivalling any in Europe in size and grandiosity.
